Colorado is full of picturesque waterfalls… but a picturesque waterfall that allows you to not only walk up to it, but behind it? That can be hard to find. Lucky for us, this perfect Glenwood Canyon waterfall offers all of the above (and then some):

Located just above the famous Hanging Lake, Spouting Rock Falls is a series of small waterfalls that shoot out through a large limestone wall (versus cascading over the edge, like most waterfalls). Because of the unique way these waters flow–and because of the shallow, water-eroded cave that lies beneath them—area visitors are able to not only get up close and personal with the Spouting Rock, but to actually walk up behind it. No matter the season (Pssst… in winter, you can see stunning 50’+ icicles), you are sure to have a memorable experience at this little-known Colorado gem.
