  • Short, but steep hike to a beautiful falls. A nice, short adventure on a pleasant sunny day. There are two trails to the falls. Be sure to take the "Main Trail" which is better kept and far easier....  more »
  • Beautiful view. Many things to look at along the way. Best thing of all it’s free. Must do in Pagosa. In a place where little is free it is nice to have something of such great value be free.  more »
  • Unfortunately the falls was all dried up when we got there.
  • Well-maintained trail up the north/"left" side and a tougher, less maintained trail up the south/"right" side that meet at a bridge at the base of the falls. Recommend going up to the right and circling back down the easier trail.
