About Piedra River Trail:

With the exception of the first wall and golden seam, all bolts are glue in stainless steel in either stud & hanger or eyebolt configuration. All fixe hardware. Established bouldering scales out at v-6. Locals are currently drilling and glueing as quick as possible to lead bolt all established topropes. Should bring the route total to 30 with tons of potential for more.

Make sure you don't knock anything down onto the trail from the top of the routes, as there is quite a bit of hiker traffic in the summertime.
Nearest town or city: Pagosa Springs
Directions: Take US 160 West through Pagosa Springs, take a right on Piedra Road. Follow Piedra Rd through the neighborhoods, the pavement will end, take it another 10-15 miles, and the first bridge will be crossing the Piedra River. Immediately after the bridge, take a left into the Piedra River Trailhead parking lot. Take the trail, dont forget to sign in, at the fork in the trail you have two options. Taking the left trail, down along the river, offers some awesome scenery, a few sport routes, and a number of boulders and traverses to practice on. The upper trail has some great bouldering to offer as well, couldn't get any beta or names from the locals other than just the general area info.
