Awesome short hike to the botto of the falls

No climbing...just lots of "stairs" down and "up" Easy parking. Sitting area near parking level for those who cant hike.

close to town, not washed out in the spring and only .5 miles round trip. Definitely a tourist event, but still fun to see the waterfall. Need a car to get there.

This is a nice easily accessible stop. Convenient location if you are returning to town from hot springs. Short walk from parking lot to see the overlook. Highly recommended to see natural beauty with investing as little or as much time as you want.

Easy access and a really fantastic falls make this a regular stop for us when in Steam. In the past we had also taken a hike there but the trail was snow packed this trip so we just enjoyed the falls.A short drive followed by a quarter mile hike make this an easy place to access. Check it out.

Nice for a couple hour side trip. Easy short trails with great views. Nice for family pictures at the overlook with the falls behind you.

It is a very easy hike to the base of the falls. Nice facilities. You will have to pay a fee to park as this is a state park. If you want to continue the hike it will take you to other parts of the falls. Great trail system for backpacks.

We skied Steamboat Mountain from 10-1:30pm yesterday and then we decided to hike to the Falls. It was a perfect way to stretch our legs. There is a parking fee of $5 year round. There were very few people there yesterday afternoon and it was so beautiful. The trail was primarily dry which was nice given the season. There is... More

There a sidewalk that takes you all the way to a beautiful overlook. Even appears to be handicap accessible. There are three trails available. One goes high, one end with picnic areas and the dirt trail takes you to the base of the falls where there is a bridge leading to a 5 ,lie long hiking trail. The falls were... More

Lots of hiking "levels" to choose from. A quick peek at the falls, or you can continue past the bridge, and make a day of it! Bring water

Even the difficult trail is an easy stroll. There are three trails that take you to a breathtaking site. Worth the walk!
