Take a Dip in Paradise Cove
Colorado › Paradise Cove Pull-Off
Added by Billy DiMirra
Just outside of Cripple Creek, this is short 1/2 mile hike leads to a secluded swimming hole surrounded by granite rocks, called Paradise Cove. There are 3 different levels you can jump from into a small deep pool fed by a waterfall.
From Colorado Springs, follow RT 24 to the town of Florissant (34.5 miles). From Florissant, follow Teller County Road 1 south for about 9.2 miles, until a Y fork, and bear right, into County Road 11. Follow County Road 11 for 4.1 miles, until a T intersection, and make a right turn at the intersection, into County Road 112. Follow County Road 112 for 2.7 miles, and where the road crests on top of a hill, park in the gravel lot on the left. On foot, cross the road and follow a foot trail in direction North for about 0.4 miles to the swimming hole.
