Trail Overview

North Henson Creek Road is one of the many spurs roads off Engineer Pass on the Alpine loop and offers numerous good dispersed camping sites including some larger sites. It is accessible for medium-sized RVs and trailers. This road is mild and semi-maintained and suitable for vehicles with the exception of the final 1/2 mile which is very rough. It is commonly used to access the Wetterhorn Peak (14'er) trailhead via a short spur called Matterhorn Creek Road.

Difficulty

Henson Creek Road would be a 2, but taking the Matterhorn Spur to see the majority of the waterfalls makes it a solid 4-5 as well as the final 1/4 mile.
