Fun hike

When you reach the top of the canyon, the view is breathtaking. I would definitely hike it again, given the chance.

It was a beautiful drive up the hill to the top. Gorgeous views, vistas, and wonderful adventure. At the top, we did a short brief hike up to Piedra Falls! Very easy hike and well worth it. The falls were wonderful!

I did this review today with my 16 yr old daughter after finding it on Trip Advisor. So glad we found it. Stunning views and awesome hike along the river. We made it to the bridge before having to turn around due it getting late and thunderstorm moving in. We will definitely do this one again when we come back... More

All I can say is that this is the most beautiful trail I've ever been on! I only we had given ourselves more time to see even more of it. A must see!

The trail starts off by dropping into the river gorge, and you get to walk under the rock walls that were carved out by the river in the past. Rock climbers use this area, so if you have little guys, they may get the treat of watching a few hardy types clambering up! The trail meanders into an open meadow... More

Just continue down the road even when you think your going the wrong way. Lol. It's goes a long way, but the views are beautiful. I'm jealous of the people that live out there. Once you get to the parking lot the journey begins. Bring water and some snacks if you do the full hike. We could only do half... More

The scenery along this river trail is really nice. The river gurgles and meanders; the trail is mostly above it so you can look down at the water and see lots of things you'd miss if you were on the bank. Not a lot of people on the days we went there. I'd say it might be more of a... More

We love to take this hike when we visit Pagosa Springs. It is not difficult and children would enjoy it also.
