Shortest of all the hikes we took in the area, and you can see the falls from the road. The left walkway is the easy trip, and to the right is the primitive trail. Seeking thrills and adventure, we of course went right and were...More

Maybe late August is not prime viewing of this waterfall. We were a little underwhelmed. Yes it's a water fall. Yes you can actually see it from the road if you look carefully. Otherwise there are trails leading back to it from the road and...More

Beautiful waterfall with scenic views from the road. A short, brisk hike will have you front and center for breathtaking photos. The walkway is fairly easy, but physically challenged folks will want to either view from below or take extreme caution.

This is -mile off the side of the road to Wolf Pass and is an easy 1/4-mile hike up to where you can see the falls. Don't expect a high volume of water going over the falls, but it's a long drop from the top...More

Big water shortage when we were there, so we didn't hike to the falls (or trickle). You can see the falls from the road and it is a beautiful area...maybe next time there will be some water!! It's on the right on a very sharp...More

Unfortunately Pagosa has been in a drought so there wasn’t much water coming down the falls. We did this hike on our first day and the altitude ( I’m a low lander) really got to me. It is a short hike but steep. We had...More

We thought we would see the picture but not in the dry season. Chance of fire is high so there is hardly any water.

Hike up the top- you’ll be glad you did. It’s steep but easy - you can do it. Very relaxing setting.

On September 12 my wife and I were heading toward Durango and thought we’d stop at Treasure Falls along the way as the reviews sounded impressive. Without a doubt in the spring of the year when the water table is up how much everywhere that...More

Lovely falls so near the road that hiking is not required as you can see them from parking lot. Of course, climbing up a bit makes the view more dramatic.

I would imagine regular hours as you do not want to be there too early or late. Go when the sun is shining as it's too slippery and dangerous at night. You will not find many safeguards anywhere there or elsewhere. Not to... More

There are no restrooms at Treasure Falls. There is a rest area with restrooms and picnic tables outside of South Forks, after going over a Wolf Creek Pass.
