About eight miles in length from trailhead to Turkey Creek Trail (580), this trail is relatively easy walking or riding for the first three miles (to the waterfall). Due to the steepness and deteriorating condition of portions of the trail beginning three miles from the trailhead and ending at the junction with the Anderson Trail, that section is not recommended for stock users. To go to Fourmile Lake, follow the Anderson Trail northwest.
From Pagosa Springs, turn north Lewis Street, then left of on Fifth Street which becomes Fourmile Road. Follow Fourmile Road (County Rd. 400/FDR 645) for 13 miles to its end at the trailhead.
