Loved this great little hike to the falls. Nice and easy. The road up IS pretty bad. But worth it. Also stayed there at the campground. Perfect spots with tent pads, fire pits, and bear proof food lockers. Highly recommended. Hit up the cafe in the Sand Dunes for breakfast!
The actual hike to the falls from the parking lot is a short (half mile?) walk. But the road up to the parking lot is a somewhat rutted road paved with cantaloupe-sized rocks. We drove a Tahoe & it took us 15 minutes to make the 3 mile drive each way. Lower clearance cars will take longer, higher clearance vehicles... 更多
Spectacular river walk closes this easy hike. The water is freezing so be ready to wear sandals or shoes to wade and navigate the rocks. But once you get to the falls you will be glad for it
This is a reasonably short hike (I think 1/4 mile). It is so well worth it though. We did have to get into the river for the last part of the hike to go inside the cave. The water is like walking in ice...so cold but it was still worth it. Wear shoes that won't come off easy in the... 更多
Short little hike after the 4-wheel drive up. Wear water shoes! You must walk up the river to see the falls! And bring a water proof camera. The water is freezing but worth it!
This is an easy hike, that we were able to do with our 12 and 6 year olds. I turned MapMyRun on, and roundtrip (walking through falls, ect) it was 1.3 miles. I always look up hikes that my 6 year can do wherever we go. My son said this was one of his favorite things we did! Driving up... 更多
We wanted to access Zapata Falls on our trip to and from Great Sand Dunes. We were driving our family van which sits low. The dirt road access to ZF is easy to find but was rough, rough, rough road condition. Didn't think we'd enjoy beating up our suspension and tires for the access so we did not make it... 更多
Awesome sight of small falls in a cave. There is a drive up a 3 mile "rough" road.. the road is actually more than rough. Would recommend 4x4 or good ground clearance car. Parking is scarce, then about a half mile hike up to a steam. You gotta walk up/through the stream to get to the falls... totally worth it
