Treasure Falls, Pagosa Springs

(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Treasure Falls is a waterfall located off U.S. Highway 160 about northeast of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The falls are named after a local legend of a treasure of gold on the mountain the falls plunges 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.Images

  • The Falls was an easy family walk to see. Beautiful nature walk. Fun and local attraction. Parking at the site, just off 84 towards Wolf Creek Ski area.  more »
  • We stopped to see some of the viewpoints along this road and thought we'd stop here as well. Worth it! Short hike up to the falls. A nice place to stretch your legs or let the brakes cool down. Stop i...  more »
  • Good for young kids. Get the kids out of the car for a short walk and see a waterfall. Hard to get parking in the summer months.  more »

  • This was a great short hike, we took our young daughters (ages 4 & 7 at the time). It wasn't too difficult for them even with a lot of snow being present on the trail yet. The view of the falls is amazing and really cool to see this early in the year. Highly recommend hiking this with the family even if you're just driving through.
  • If you are visting Pagosa Springs this is a must see. Right off the highway and very scene hike leads to a water fall over 100 ft. Perfect to see any time of the year.
  • A very easy hike to a very impressive waterfall. This is both a great short hike in spring/summer, and in winter when tons of ice has formed around the waterfall. For anybody traveling along 160 over Wolf Creek Pass, this is well worth a quick stop.
  • Perfect for the hiker that doesn't really want to hike too far to get up close to a natural waterfall. Just dress accordingly. If the weather is wet, you'll get muddy.
  • Treasure falls was visible from a spot in the parking lot. Highly recommend taking the trial to misty point. Use caution on the primitive trial. If it's raining this your going to slip a couple times..
