Unincorporated community
Fountain Creek is a 74.5-mile-long (119.9 km) stream in El Paso and Pueblo counties, in Colorado in the United States. From its source near the city of Woodland Park north of Pikes Peak, the creek flows southeast through the communities of Green Mountain Falls and Chipita Park to the town of Cascade. Locals confusingly refer to it as "Ute Pass", or just "the pass"; but the actual Ute Pass is some 15 miles (24 km) to the west, along US 24.
