A beautiful hike to the falls! Not too strenuous and pet friendly! The falls are absolutely worth the hike there. About 1/2 a mile.

We took about 2 hours to hike in the lower trail and enjoyed calming vistas along the river. Hike was easy with just a few places that would be scary for someone who doesn't like heights. Recommend for families with smaller children too

We hiked a total of six Pagosa trails, this one is our favorite. The views of river and canyon are exceptional. You should put this hike on your first to do list.

Arrived later in the afternoon. About 1 mile from the waterfall trail head is a small tarn. A bull moose was in the water munching his dinner. He tolerated many photo shots with little concern..STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE! There are many roads in the area....More

You could carry one in a carrier on your back quite a ways down the path, but I'd be careful allowing young ones walk on their on. There are some edges above the river early in the hike that wouldn't be advisable.
