Waterfall Nature / Park
Treasure Falls is a waterfall in the San Juan Mountains, within Mineral County, Colorado. It is located in the Rio Grande National Forest, off U.S. Highway 160, about northeast of Pagosa Springs.The falls are named after a local legend about "a treasure of gold" buried in the mountain the falls plunge from.AccessThere 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.
