Rainbow Trail is one of my favorite hikes in Pagosa Springs. This picture shows Bear Creek just before the creek converges with the West Fork of the San Juan River. Luckily, I hiked the trail twice this year (with my dog, Gracie) before the West Fork fire complex started. From my understanding, both bridges are still intact and I am sure nature will quickly renew and make this area truly beautiful. This hike is located only 15 minutes from downtown Pagosa Springs. One of the many, many places we can explore within a short drive of downtown. Note…this is also a great place for fly fishing!
