Spring Creek Pass is the top of the Continental Divide where half a bucket of poured water theoretically flows westerly through creeks and streams to the Colorado River, onto California and eventually to the Pacific Ocean; the other half would head east, to the Rio Grande and its tributaries, ultimately emptying into the Gulf of Mexico.
Spring Creek Pass serves as a trailhead for two popular trails with a common route in this area, the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. The Colorado Trail stretches over 471 miles from Denver to Durango. The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail provides a trail system from Canada to Mexico along the Continental Divide. In Colorado, the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail are co-located at many locations including Spring Creek Pass.
