Treasure Falls is a waterfall located off U.S. Highway 160 about 15 miles (24 km) northeast of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The falls are named after a local legend of a treasure of gold on the mountain the falls plunges from. There is a trailhead on the highway. The falls are somewhat visible from the parking lot, and a short and moderately steep hike of about 15 minutes and 300 feet (91 m) of elevation gain will bring hikers to the base of the falls, where there is a foot bridge for viewing. A switchback trail will take hikers closer to the plunge base, called the "Misty Deck" where hikers can view and feel the spray of the falls.
