The gravel trail (marked # 563 on the San Juan National Forest Recreation Map) offers points of interest and rest benches along the way. The trail leads to a bridge spanning the base of the falls, where you can stand in the refreshing spray with the water tumbling hundreds of feet before you. In winter, the falls freeze into an ice-blue sculpture, which must be viewed from the parking lot when the trail becomes snow packed.
Directions from Pagosa Springs, Colorado: Parking lot is located 14 miles east of Pagosa Springs on the south side of U.S. Hwy 160 at the base of Wolf Creek Pass.
