The ice is directly visible from the road and hangs from a steep cliff on the opposite side of the creek. This flow is also named "First Flow" in the Robert's guide, but I think Beer Garden a la the Burns guide is nicer.

Getting There 

About 2.8 miles from the intersection of CO 93 and US 6, up the Clear Creek Canyon the ice is visible on the left side of the road on the opposite side of the creek. Park at a pull-off along the road, scramble down the hill and cross the creek on the ice.

This goes up quite a ways, but only the first step is at all long.
