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 drive to this very short hike is long and in my honest opinion, not worth it UNLESS, you have children who just want to see a waterfall. It’s a super easy hike but the trail isn’t very pretty. Wouldn’t recommend it to friends/family visiting...More

Bite of a excursion to get there, dirt road was fine. the hike up from the trailhead is easy, and the falls spectacular.

Well worth going to see this falls, lots of thundering water coming down, probably better earlier in the sprin.

Short hike, but the trail is uphill and rocky. Beautiful falls at the end. Nice stream to soak your feet.

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
