Hike to Buffalo Creek Falls

0.5 Miles Round Trip - 500 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Buffalo Creek Falls - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

A 'best kept secret,' beautifully formed waterfall within 2 hours of Denver. Enjoy camping, fishing, and boating at Wellington Lake after this short, rewarding hike.

A quarter mile hike takes you to the base of the falls. From there, look for a trail on the right that will lead to an overlook on a bridge. You can continue exploring along South Buffalo Creek further upstream, as well, where there are more cascades and pools to enjoy.

Afterwards, spend some time at the picturesque Wellington Lake, with its grand reflection of 'The Castle' mountain, where there are 75 tent and RV camping sites, boating, fishing, and more trails.
