Piedra Falls

Piedra Falls is located about 30 miles north of Pagasoa Springs, Colorado in the San Juan National Forest. It’s a leisurely hike of about 3/4 mile to get to the falls and makes a very pleasant day hike through the forest and along the middle fork of the Piedra River.

Start of the trail in the San Juan National Forest.


Further along the trail it gets a little rocky.
Back into the woods again.

Trail gets rocky again.


Trail runs along the side of the Piedra River as you get closer to the falls.


There’s a narrow spot between the rocks as you approach the basin of the falls.
