Trinchera Creek slides peacefully into Colorado from New Mexico, making its way north through Trinchera Canyon before settling into the Purgatoire River. At Trinchera Falls, the creek spills through a narrow crevice and emerges in a horsetail spray, splashing its bounty into a secret cavern carved in stone. The route begins on a dirt road that is not maintained. Piñon pine, yucca, juniper, and walking stick cactus sprout from the ground, while across the prairie to the west, you’ll have views of—from left to right—9,626-foot Fishers Peak Mesa, 9,627-foot Fishers Peak, the Culebra Range, 13,626-foot West Spanish Peak, and 12,683-foot East Spanish Peak. As the road descends, the western wall of Trinchera Canyon appears to the right. The road fades and a cairn marks the rocky trail down to Trinchera Creek, where Trinchera Cave lies directly ahead.
