Fourmile Trail to Fourmile Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hiking this scenic trail is a great way to experience the wonders of the Weminuche Wilderness—its vast spaces, rugged cliffs and lush forests—and its serious waterfalls. The first two waterfalls are three miles from the trailhead, but you can keep hiking to find more. Early spring brings heavy snowmelt and runoff. That’s when the waterfalls thunder! Yet, because of its lower elevation and its lower longitude, bordering New Mexico, this trail stays snow-free later in the fall and melts out earlier in the spring than most treks into this wilderness.
This trail leads downhill from the trailhead. (The Anderson Trail #579 leads due west and uphill from this spot. It joins Fourmile Trail near Fourmile Lake in a little more than 9 miles.) In 0.3 mile, you’ll cross a small drainage and the trail leads into a large patch of wild raspberries. They are normally in full fruit by mid-August."
