We hiked up to the 2nd falls and highly recommend it. Can't speak to hiking all the way to the lake as we didn't get that far.

Lovely hike. Not too hard. Even my 80 year old father, who does not like to hike, enjoyed it. My 8 year old also found it pleasant. Will do it again and take guests.

As a part time resident of Steamboat Springs, we typically hike or snowshoe the Fish Creek area at least 10 times each year. It's about 3 miles out of town and easy to reach. I consider it a fun way to feel like your out in the wilderness without having to drive long distances from town. The hike starts at... More

Great place to spend an hour or two taking photos, climbing to the falls, overlooking the falls and hiking. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the sights and sounds along the river.

Nice cascading waterfall, easily accessible, only 1/4 mile from the parking area. The trail to the falls is wide and well maintained.

This is a beautiful hike but very challenging. 2.5 miles of hiking to upper falls. You need to be very fit to do this. Wear good shoes, preferable hiking boots. Don't wear flip flops!

Definitely a must see! I would recommend wearing good shoes even though the trail is not that far. There were some people in flip flops and casual sandals that probably would have enjoyed it more with better footwear.

This was my wife and I's first stop after arriving in Colorado from the East Coast. It was a short hike to view the falls. But we were gasping for air after just a few minutes because we had not given ourselves time to adjust to the elevation. It is definitely not a hard hike, just avoid our mistake of... More

We did the hike down to the bottom of the falls with 4 kids ages 2-12 and everyone loved it. A must see if you visit Steamboat in the Summer! Plus Veterans get in free

Don't leave Steamboat without visiting these Falls. There is even handicap access. There are two overlook areas which are very easy to walk to with a paved path. Once you cross the bridge, which is one of the nice overlook areas also, you will head up a steeper and more rocky trail that take you to the top. The Falls... More
