Local Trail Information
Reservoir Trail System
Reservoir Hill is a Pagosa Springs town park located in the heart of downtown with trailheads within easy riding distance of a variety of downtown lodging establishments and public parking. Reservoir Hill provides trails for all levels as well as a minimal use gravel road. The system is short and fairly steep to the top with cross country style trails surrounding a large meadow at the top.
Getting there: Take U.S. 160 to downtown Pagosa Springs. Turn south at the Hot Springs Boulevard traffic light and take the second left onto San Juan Street. Look for a public parking area on the left. From the public parking area, it is a short uphill ride to the Spa Trailhead, which provides one point of access to Reservoir Hill.

This is a great cross-country style trail system with 30+ miles of intertwining beginner and intermediate multi-use trails nestled within a ponderosa pine forest. While well marked, it is easy to become turned around or end up the ATV trails. So, stop at each intersection and consult a map.
Getting there: The Main trailhead is 5.3 miles north on Piedra Road from the intersection of Piedra Road and 160 highway. The trailhead parking lot is on the left, immediately after the cattle guard. The Gate 5 trailhead is 3.6 miles north on North Pagosa Blvd from the intersection of North Pagosa Blvd and 160 highway. The trailhead parking lot is on the West (left) side.
Coyote Hill has one intermediate 3.3 mile, multi-use single track loop in ponderosa pine with a couple of great views of the surrounding mountains. The trail has not been maintained recently and is recommended for intermediate riders.
Getting there: Drive 5.4 miles north of U.S. 160 on Piedra Road (County Road 600). The trailhead parking lot is on the right, just after the cattle guard.
Cloman Park is an Archuleta County park with one 2.2 mile, multi-use, single track figure-8 winding through ponderosa pines. The lower part of the single track loop is good for beginner riders while the upper section is intermediate.
Getting there: Drive 1.3 miles north on Piedra Road from Highway 160. Turn right (east – entrance to Steven’s Field airport) on Cloman Blvd for 1.4 miles. Stay left at the fork in the road which then dead ends at the large parking lot.
