Trail Overview

Piedra road will lead you north out of Pagosa Springs past the airport and a few neighborhoods. It eventually turns into a forest service road with two large parking areas and trailheads at the beginning. Here you can park your trailers for ATV or 6x6s and air down or up. The road will take you to the Williams Reservoir, several USFS campgrounds, primitive dry campsites and along Wieminuche Valley before turning hard left and heading up the switchbacks to 10,271 feet and several trails including the Coldwater Creek trail. At the end of the road is a large meadow with multiple disturbed primitive campsites. There are scenic views all along the drive up. A few areas to watch out for with their steep inclines and turns.

Difficulty

This road starts out as a maintained gravel road until you make a hard left after passing through Wieminuche Valley. Then the road will narrow with several switchbacks as you climb in elevation. In places a mild ruts and potholes. Watch your speed on these turns, cars have been known to go over when driving too fast.
