Lower Cataract Lake
Directions to Lower Cataract Lake:
Take highway 9 north out of Silverthorne for 16.5 miles. Turn left on
Heeney Road #30. Continue for 5.4 miles to County Road 1725 and turn
left. The parking area is 2.6 miles ahead.
An ideal spot for fishing, hiking, and picnicking! Walk around the
lake (2 mile roundtrip) to the falls and Cataract Creek at the far end
of the lake. The falls drop 300 feet down the cliffs to the creek.
Fishing is often best where the creek flows into the lake! This is an
ideal spot for the whole family to enjoy!
