The Cascade Creek Trail departs from the Monarch Lake trailhead which is at the end of Grand County Road 6. This is a streamside
trail with great opportunities to see both cascades and waterfalls. The trail also traverses several forest and meadow areas and
about five miles in provides some great views of Lone Eagle Peak. For waterfall viewing this trail is best in early summer after
the snow has melted, but before the water flow rates have significantly slowed.
