flow- nice trout stream

season- summer and fall… earlier is better

accommodations- lots and lots of charred logs

ownership- Santa Fe National Forest

access- 3-mile hike mostly down an old closed logging road

nearest town- hmmm…. That is a good question…???  …maybe Pecos some 20 miles SW of here

interesting fact- this must have been a way-good, beautiful place before the huge forest fire


essay bro:

The Santa Fe National Forest map lists the road into upper Cow Creek as #639… but up on the mountain the sign calls it #92… Good Luck…!!!  Downed trees make for extremely difficult hiking off trail the last quarter mile to the falls…!!!
