Amazing beauty

I only hiked a total of 3 hours, but loved every inch. It was very peaceful and not a lot of people when I went. I would bet that there are bears there, so watch yourself.

I have to say a big Thank You to the TripAdvisor reviewers who gave this hike great reviews. Our family absolutely loved this hike. We went to the bridge and back, but we would have gone farther if it wasn't for little legs in our hiking party. As it was, our 7 year old had not problems with the approximate... More

We have been many times to this area in Pagosa Springs, CO. It is the most beautiful place and we are drawn back there every year. A must see place to go.

The Piedra River Trail is, hands down, one of the most scenic areas around Pagosa. Between the mountain views and rock walls by the river, it's worth a visit... And, best of all, it's a moderately easy walk without significant elevation gain. This makes it ideal for anyone visiting from lower-elevation areas and wants to take in some scenery but... More

How fabulous to be able to hike alongside a flowing river. This is a great trail because you can walk as far as you like and always be able to take a break alongside the water.

Fun easy hike and if you are adventurous enough, take your bathing suit and jump off the cliffs into the icy snow melt below. If you are not adventurous, hike up to the top and find a nice perch to watch the other crazy souls as they take the plunge. beautiful hike, very easy and only takes about a 1/2... More

I almost hate to write this review so I can keep it quiet! This is my favorite place to go with the dogs in the summer.....we take a mile or two walk, chill (literally) in the cool river and the scenery around you is so serene. I go for solitude and rarely run into people on this trail. I am... More

Even the road to the trail was a really magnificent drive! We enjoyed the view of Pagosa Lake and many gorgeous mountain views on the way! A little snow fell, with 1 to 3 inches predicted but locals said could expand to 1 to 3 feet up the mountain, so we didn't take that really curvy and skinny snow-covered back... More

Nice hike with many good views of the river. Nice to be out in the trees and we saw a few mule deer. This was an out and back hike for us. We spent about 4 hours on the hike.

This hike can be as long or as short as you want- it is a there and back kind of hike. Beautiful scenery, not many steep areas. The only negative we found was the amount of poison ivy right along the trail.
