Description [Suggest Change]
There are a few problems on a solitary boulder along the Sheep Creek Trail. They are fun and noteworthy, especially since it's along the way to the Piedra River Hot Springs.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Take U.S. 160 about 16 miles southwest of Pagosa Springs. Just after the Chimney Rock turnoff to the south (left) is the Piedra Road on the north (right). It's also called the First Fork Road and follows the Piedra River. Follow this gravel road about 6.7 miles to the intersection with Monument Park Road and the parking area. Take the trail from the Sheep Creek Trailhead. To reach the springs is a 3-mile hike round-trip with an 800-foot drop going in. The boulder will be along the trail on the right about 3/4 the way to the Hot Springs.
