Hike to Clear Creek in Cimarron Canyon State Park

Clear Creek Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Sebastian Cuadra

This is a hike that is good for all beginner hikers, families of all ages, and dogs! Plenty of shade and beautiful views.

Head North from Eagle Nest towards Cimarron, and about 7 miles (or less) on your right hand, you will find two big signs with a parking area on both sides of the road. If you park on the right side, walk on the inside of the guardrail until you find the trail head sign. If you parked on the left side, just go across the street and do the same.

With a few small/ medium waterfalls, small bridges, minimum rock climbing and lots of shade on the way up.
