Hike the Falls Creek Loop

Falls Creek Trail - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Falls Creek Loop is a 4.1 mile trail in the San Juan National Forest, just outside of Durango, Colorado. The trail features beautiful wild flowers, a waterfall, and scenic forest views. The trail is good for all skill levels, and is recommended for use from April to October. The trail is shared by hikers, mountain bikers, and trail runners.

Lots of side trails jut out from the main trail, and it is easy to lose your way. Take the middle trail at the first split, and keep following the main splits. You will find yourself on a steep downhill, which will lead to views of the waterfall.
