Rainbow Falls, Manitou Springs, Colorado
by L. Nethery
(Colorado Springs, Co.)
This is a waterfall in Manitou Springs, Colorado. You can see the Indian statue on the right hand just before going to the Cave of the Winds exit. There is a no parking sign at the curve in the road. It is located just under Hwy 24 on the western exit of Manitou Springs on the business district. The amount of graffiti going up the trail is horrible and also around the waterfall. El Paso County is suppose to clean the graffiti up. This will be great once the area is cleaned up. It is only about a 1/4 mile hike to the falls.
Karen's reply: We went up to this waterfall several years ago but I was so discouraged by all the graffiti that I decided not to add it to this site, but I'm glad you did because it's still a nice waterfall. If they ever clean up the area, then I'll probably go back and see it again. Thanks for another great picture :-).
P.S. Thanks for giving directions to Rainbow Falls so other people can go enjoy it too :-).
