Fourmile Trail Waterfalls

Fourmile Trail Waterfalls Professional Review and Guide

"Two fairy-tale waterfalls highlight a storybook setting north of Pagosa Springs. Falls Creek and Fourmile Creek lend liquid pleasure to a plunge fall and a tiered fall, while the scenery is provided courtesy of Colorado wildflowers and the San Juan Mountains of the Weminuche Wilderness.

This is a lovely hike with lots of scenery. Fourmile Trail (#569) descends through a spruce and fir forest to Fourmile Creek, then rises into the Weminuche Wilderness. Travel in and out of the trees, across meadows of wildflowers and fields of California corn lilies, bordered to the east by the craggy faces of 12,007-foot Eagle Mountain and 12,137-foot Eagle Peak No. 2 Benchmark. At about 2.25 miles, Falls Creek Falls comes into view high in the cliffs to the north, with Fourmile Creek Falls just below and to the right."
