If you can find your way around the confusing array of Forest Service trails and trails generated by the Boy Scout camp, Snoquera Falls is a great destination—especially during spring when the water is gushing. Though it’s a short way up to the bottom of Snoquera, the steep trail will preclude all but the hardiest of children. An option to continue on Trail 1167 after reaching the falls is possible, but the way is not maintained. It’s a rough row to hoe, requiring talus hopping, screeing, and route-finding. There are at least two trailheads to choose from to start your hike.
