Treasure Falls, Pagosa Springs

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.

    On the way this area definitely recommend visiting this place-after crossing the Pagosa Springs to continue towards the Wolfs Creek Pass, after approx. 20 km drive from the small car park on the road marked. To the waterfall 2 trails-easy and moderately difficult, it takes a min. 10-15 occur directly under the waterfall, where you refresh after climbing the gentle shower, is a nice experience.
