Archuleta County Colorado Hiking Trails

Cascade Creek Trail #510

San Juan National Forest

Use: Medium
Difficulty: More Difficult
Distance: 6.0 miles

There are two trails, on either side of the creek. The trail on the east is a stock driveway that is steep and muddy in spots. The trail on the west is more pleasant; it stays closer to the stream and is moderate hiking. Directly across the creek is the end of the Cascade Trail, where the west-side trail ends (or turns into Graysill Trail). It is best to cross the creek up a little ways. To the east is Graysill Trail, which continues on until it ties into the Rico-Silverton Trail. There are several beautiful views and waterfalls. Plenty of water is available, but purification is recommended to avoid Giardia.

30 miles north of Durango on U.S. 550, turn west on the Cascade dirt road (frontage access sign). This road eventually turns into 4WD, but there is a little cul-de-sac area just past the flume where there is some parking. From here follow the dirt road approximately ¾ mile to a red gate before a cabin on the right. Open the gate and follow the road until it turns to the trail.
