Primarily pavement, the last mile is a portion of the Black Bear Pass Rd, a difficult and dangerous 4wd road, and includes a couple of steep and sharp switchbacks. Most passenger vehicles can reach the Falls, high clearance would be desirable.

A 365 ft free falling waterfall at the end of the box canyon overlooking Telluride. It’s fascinating to watch the water come off the top and shear apart to form the appearance of folds and pleats in a veil. The mist at the bottom is quite refreshing on a hot summer day! It is about a mile and three more switchbacks to the top of the Falls, high clearance required. Vehicle travel proceeding up is prohibited beyond this point.
