Spruce Creek Trail
Cascading waterfalls and abandoned mining cabins set in an exquisite alpine cirque are what make this hike so popular. Although the trail ends after a very steep climb to Upper and Lower Mohawk Lakes, 0.5 mile before the lakes is an easier, very worthwhile destination: Continental Falls, spilling from a wildflower-blanketed hillside scattered with the rusty remnants of a bygone mining era. Most hikers can enjoy these sights as a day hike—before the afternoon thunderstorms.
