The Zapata Falls Trail offers a short but scenic tour of the San Luis Valley, the Great Sand Dunes, and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. An easy, stacked-loop ride, the Zapata Falls Trail is a great family ride, offering four to 10 miles of well-maintained singletrack- an excellent trail for the beginner mountain biker. Although the Zapata area is comprised of four distinct numbered loops, the loop described here actually includes sections of each loop- introducing the rider to all four. It's best to consult interpretive area map signs when deciding which loops to add or subtract from this description. A short quarter-mile hike beginning at 9,000 feet delivers you to Zapata Falls. The falls are 50 feet high and enter into an open aired cavern. To reach the falls, you must hike through the Zapata Creek bed upstream- be prepared to get your feet wet. But once there, the falls and cavern offer chilling relief from even the most sweltering of summer days. Terrain: Singletrack- mostly hard-packed earth that weaves through pinon pine and juniper forests and scrub oak trees; a few rocky sections.
