Easy trail but slightly steep. The falls were a little dry due to the season. Nice little stop on our way into Pagosa Springs.
Noticed Many kids were able to make it up.

Great, short trail with steep sections. Reward is a dip in the pool under the falls to cool off. 6 year old made it no problems, just got to hold their hand on the steep parts

Stopped here on our way into Pagosa Springs with my wife and kids (ages 18,16,13). Despite my wife being in flip-flops, and there being a light sun-shower, the trails weren't muddy and we/she didn't have any issues on the "main trail". A very simple introduction to hiking for us culminating in a beautiful waterfall. Planning to wear better hiking shoes as we hit other longer area trails over the next few days.

Pretty and fun for kids. We did the loop starting on the steep “primitive trail” to the right and my 4-year-old niece had no problem. The waterfall is weak right now, but the views from the top are still stunning.

Did this trail in March and on the way up we took the family friendly trail. Very easy, just a lot of mud so bring proper shoes. I’m sure during summertime you can even use tennis shoes. If you have kids, highly recommend it. The waterfall is simply breathtaking. Now, be careful if you decide to take the primitive trail during winter. We decided to do so on the way back and it was like walking in winterland. I thought it was super easy and was having a blast until we heard the scariest sound which up to this day I cannot explain in words. We asked the locals and they said that day they were not doing avalanche work but the conditions had triggered significant snow slides. I will never forget that sound and it was enough to make me haul a.. down the trail. At the end of course we laughed it off but trust me, I was not laughing when I heard that. It definitely put us in alert mode. It probably was far from us but still you never know. I’m not an expert but I follow my instincts and that day my instincts said “get out now”. Just be careful.

Great short hike! 5 year old and 3 year old made it to the top without being carried.

Great little hike while i stayed up in pagosa springs. Short but sweet! Found a small trailhead going up to the fall opposite the observation deck, easy to miss tho.

Hiked to the top with my 6 year old daughter.and she loved it. The trail was part ice/snow/mud but easily navigable. We can't seem to drive by without stopping.

A really fun and beautiful place to visit. Their are two different trails you can take to reach the falls. One is a well taken care of trail with signs to learn about different biology facts. The other is a trail that at a point in time was the main trail, but years ago it was hit by a land slide. It's very rugged and steep at points. If you are visiting in the summer months, and you are looking for a nice secluded trail to enjoy nature, this is definitely not what your looking for. The area is normally packed with tourists. But during fall, spring, and winter its normally fairly quiet. One thing to keep in mind is that the falls are blocked off with fences and signs to prevent you from going near its base.

My wife and I took our four kids and my Father in law and had a great time. We took the primitive trail and it was awesome! Definitely a family friendly Hike and well worth it.

Great easy quick hike with some beautiful views. If you're up for a little more challenge take the less traveled trail to the right of the entrance and then come back on the main trail, as you get a few more scenic views that way.
