Treasure Falls, Pagosa Springs

Treasure Falls is a waterfall in the San Juan Mountains, within Mineral County, Colorado. It is located in the Rio Grande National Forest, off U.S. Highway 160, about northeast of Pagosa Springs.
The falls are named after a local legend about "a treasure of gold" buried in the mountain the falls plunge from.
There is a trailhead on the highway. The falls are somewhat visible from the parking lot, and a short and moderately steep hike of about 15 minutes and of elevation gain will bring hikers to the base of the falls, where there is a foot bridge for viewing. A switchback trail will take hikers closer to the plunge base, called the "Misty Deck" where hikers can view and feel the spray of the falls.

  • Great photo op during the summer but winter not so much slippery and cold water frozen over for most part still stop every time we are there in summer bad part have to park along side of road  more »
  • A short easy hike takes you back to a close up view of these falls. The falls are visible from the road turn out, but the close up view after hiking back is well worth it.  more »
