Worth the stop and easy hike
Jul 2021
Nice little spot to view the falls. A bit crowded but everyone is polite. Wear proper shoes and watch your step. There's a more primitive trail if you're up for the challenge, but the main trail is easy for all ages.

Great Little Hike
Jul 2021
Great little hike in July. It took about 15-20 min total to complete the hike and take pictures. It was worth the stop. There were even people swimming in the water in July!

Waterfall hike
Jul 2021 • Couples
We have driven over wilf creek pass many times, but had never stopped to see the falls. This time we stopped. It did not disappoint! Pretty little water fall, walked the trail as far as the falls. Not terribly steep, has lots of switch backs. Dog/leashed friendly. Lots of pretty wildflowers and chipmunks.

Great little hike!
Jul 2021 • Family
This is a great little hike, not far from Pagosa Springs. There are 2 trails up to the falls - on the right is the primitive trail, featuring a more steep, but shorter, climb. We went up that way. The other trail, on the left from the parking area, is longer, with more switch backs, and less steep. We took that path back down. Treasure Falls itself is beautiful, with a small rainbow at the bottom. You can also wade in the water at the bottom. Around the falls, it is much cooler, like a natural A/C!

Nice road side stop, not too challenging if dry
Jun 2021
Nice roadside stop with some pretty views right after crossing Wolf Creek pass. Be careful getting in and out of your car here. Worth the stop for 20 mins.

Best way to start a summer day!
Jul 2021
Arrive early to avoid crowds (for real!).
Hike the primitive trail on the way up for some nice views.
Watch out for trail areas that have been washed away due to recent (2020-2021) heavy rains.
Keep dogs on-leash. Keep children close to prevent falling.
DO NOT carve on the aspen trees.

A wonderful stop during our long drive!
Jul 2021 • Family
Definitely worth the hike. I will say the hike was a little more than I expected. My special needs daughter and her grandparents did not even attempt the hike. Actually Grammie (72 years old) attempted and returned back to the truck. She is in pretty good shape. My teenage girls were gone with their eight year old cousin coming behind them.

We are from Texas, and I do believe we were not quite ready for the altitude difference.

It is not wheel chair or walker accessible. There is a scenic area that is wheelchair accessible on the ground level.

It is a dirt hiking path.

Overall the path is very stable and weaves back and forth to decrease the slope up to the falls.

We enjoyed the views and taking pictures of the scenery.

We recommend stopping to view Treasure Falls. They are right off the highway.

Beautiful view
Jul 2021
Our family truy enoyed this.The hike is fairly easy, My 71 yr. old mother in law was able to walk up the trail to see the waterfall with us. There is one spot that is some what of an incline. They do offer benches along the way if you need to rest.

Conveniently located off of the highway easy and well maintained trail to waterfall
Jun 2021
There is a generous size parking area at the trail head. It is 0.6 miles loop trail (main one) with a elevation gain of ~ 200 feet. Lots of kids and hikers of all abilities. We found the trail to be nicely maintained, not hard at all. It is also very shady.

You first approach the bridge that offers a good view to the waterfall from below. Then you ascend some more to get up a little bit higher. When we went in June, the flow was quite nice. Not a trickle at all.

It made a lovely stop on our way to Durango. High recommend it.

Gorgeous and easy, short hike to get there!
May 2021
Over Memorial Day weekend it was gushing and unbelievably beautiful! A month later it appeared to have much less water, but we didn't go up close in June. Either way, it is totally worth the visit!
