These falls are famous in the Steamboat area so if you are visiting, make sure to go visit. In the summer months it will be crowded but it is a short hike with a stunning view. It is absolutely breath taking in the winter so if you have snow shoes and the time, check it out.

We were told about the falls by the tourist bureau and were glad we drove up. Easy walk to the uppermost viewing area where you can see the entire falls. However, the real bonus comes when you go to the bottom of the falls. The trail could be a little steep for some and we heard some concerns about the... More

This is one of the most beautiful places in America! The trails are easy to hike and many are handicap accessible. The views are absolutely breathtaking and there are photo ops at every turn. I think we paid $5 dollars for parking and that was it.

Hiking to the second falls for those not used to it will be a multi-hour adventure but the reward will be worth it. This is steep terrain with amazing views, on trails that at times may scare a mountain goat. We hiked this with kids from 7-16. It was a bit much for the 7 yo as well as for... More

This is a easy and short hike to a lovely waterfall. You do need to pay a small fee (cash only) to enter the lot. Parking is limited and this seems to be a very popular attraction so there are lots of people. The trails themselves weren't over crowded, but lots of people hanging out by the falls. This is...

Right outside Steamboat, beautiful drive to Fish Creek Falls. Only $5 to use the park. There is a great overlook trail that is family and kid friendly if you are not looking for a strenuous hike. The trail to the falls and lake is a bit more work, but so worth it. Slow and steady up the trail and around... More

The falls are within easy walking distance even for someone with limitations. And, they are beautiful, especially with the aspens and cottonwoods still showing fall color.
