Lovely scenery, easy walk to scenic overlook and then more challenging trail down to the creek. Great photo spots in both places and several other trail options from this area. There are frequently naturalists at the parking area with exhibits and information.

Enjoy a pleasant hike through the woods to e great viewpoint across from the falls. The run-off was at it's peak so the river and falls were very fast and full. Make sure you hike down to the river

The Fish Creek has a magnificent view that stole my heart.We went there in month of February during the winter season,and the trails was totally covered by powdery snow but the creek water is still flowing.The sound of the falls is what we used to follow the trails! An awesome family trip!

We drove up here with our kids (middle school) and spent an hour or so walking the various trails. Others told us the trails are not always this clear, but this year is a low snow year. The waterfall was an amazing sight. I think you could walk in and out in 20 minutes or so, but we enjoyed both... More

We stopped by after an afternoon of horseback riding. We only had jeans and boots. Def need waterproof shoes/boots and pants (if visiting in winter). We are not avid hikers and the terrain was negotiable for us. We had a blast!!!

A short hike and you're at a lovely waterfall. We have taken our elderly family and they love it as well. A nice steep hike for those more adventurous is available.

We did a snowshoe tour / hike up to the uranium mine. The tour is offered on Fridays through the Yampatika organization. The tour is free. Snowshoes can be rented for $10. It's a moderately strenuous hike, but the views can't be beat. The tour guide, Linda, is extremely knowledgeable, and a pleasure to listen to. Well worth the trip.... More

We visited in the winter when there was snow on the ground. In the distance we could see the falls breaking through the green ice. It ran down to a couple of water pools then disappeared under the snow into a stream. We were standing on a cliff and although it was winter it was a nice day and we... More

What a great little hike. The winter scenery was absolutely awesome. I did not bring super great shoes so I kept to the upper and lower falls trail, stopping and just admiring the sound of the falls. Parking is pretty ample but it gets pretty crowded after 11am so I would HIGHLY recommend visiting before then if you prefer to... More
