Clear Creek Falls

Headwaters of the Rio Grande River

A friend recommended visiting Creede a few years back when we lived in Texas.  We’ve been going back every year since.  The town is absolutely charming with galleries eateries and more.  A short road trip away we visit the overlook for the headwaters of the Rio Grande,Then to Clear Creek falls. If you feel ambitious, keep going to the overlook for beautiful Lake San Cristobal.

Creede’s elevation is 8,799 feet above sea level which makes it cool in the summer.  This part of the San Juan Mountains is beautiful year round with off road trails galore!  In the evening you can take in a play at Creede Repertory Theater - always a must for us!
