Big water shortage when we were there, so we didn't hike to the falls (or trickle). You can see the falls from the road and it is a beautiful area...maybe next time there will be some water!! It's on the right on a very sharp...More

We thought we would see the picture but not in the dry season. Chance of fire is high so there is hardly any water.

Hike up the top- you’ll be glad you did. It’s steep but easy - you can do it. Very relaxing setting.

Lovely falls so near the road that hiking is not required as you can see them from parking lot. Of course, climbing up a bit makes the view more dramatic.

The falls can be viewed from the roadside pull-off but to really enjoy them the hike to the closer viewing areas is worth it. The hike is uphill but the left path is wide, gradual and well maintained.

Bring plenty of water and not suited for kids under 8, lots of strenuous uphills that will get your heart rate up. Path is well marked, views were spectacular, especially in the big meadow (you'll know what I mean) and high cliffs. Waterfall was unfortunately...More

I would imagine regular hours as you do not want to be there too early or late. Go when the sun is shining as it's too slippery and dangerous at night. You will not find many safeguards anywhere there or elsewhere. Not to... More

There are no restrooms at Treasure Falls. There is a rest area with restrooms and picnic tables outside of South Forks, after going over a Wolf Creek Pass.
