There were signs to point the way but it felt like you drove forever. The hike wasn’t bad but there were parts that look like if it was wet you would slide off into a really steep ravine. I wouldn’t go if it had rained....More

Short hike up to the falls which is really pretty!! Gravel road suitable for all vehicles. We saw a goldie bear sitting in the road on the way up to the falls. Some beautiful scenery on the way to the falls!!

We never found the road to the right to turn off for the falls. We were afraid of getting a flat tire. The cow pastures went on and on. We drove back to the junction and was told by a hiker we had not gone...More

We loved it. The countryside is fabulous. Spectacular. The hike was easy but would be challenging if muddy. Short patches where might be dangerous for young children or older adults.

Our first attempt to get the Falls ended up being a fun trip up the mountain. The GPS took us the shortest route, which led us to a closed gate that said no entrance to Piedra Falls and then a dead end which was one...More

Water shoots out from a cleft in the rock. Spectacular even with relatively low water. Hike is 1/2 mile. All stones and rock. The area at the falls is steep, rocky and hard to climb. Not recommended for anyone who is not very agile. Do...More

The drive took us quite awhile. We had to stop at the general store by the sportman's campground to get better directions. Once we arrived, we hiked about 1/2 mile to the waterfall. The terrain wasn't too bad. (There was a slight steep portion that...More

It’s very cool to see this in person. The best time though is spring to early summer because it runs sooo much fuller because of the mountain snow melt.

the visitors center could probably answer that, but I wouldn't try it if it's been wet.

From Pagosa Springs turn onto 600/Piedra Rd. headed north. It becomes 631/Piedra Rd. It's pretty far, and windy. Keep on 631 though. There will be signs too that read Piedra Falls. Turn right on 636 for a short bit, turn... More
