Fish Creek Falls is an annual stop for my family, we have our picture taken at the same bridge each year! Some years we pop in for the photo and can be out in 10 minutes, sometimes we walk to the scenic overlook and just play in the river, and other times we will hike 5 miles to the Falls.... More

Colorado is a land of mountains, and rushing white water, whether in streams, rivers or waterfalls. Fish Creek Falls is one of the most easily accessible sites you'll find. It's only about 15 minutes outside of Steamboat Springs and is a short 1/4 mile hike. There are upper and lower trails to take you to overlooks where you can enjoy... More

It is a scenic rout towards the waterfalls, and finally you see it, it is magnificent! Actually there are two of them falling into one, we hiked on the top to see it. Very beautiful! Breathtaking!

This uphill hike sounded like it might be a bit daunting for us seniors, but the great thing about it was that there were plenty of interesting features all along the way that made it interesting. We did not go all the way to the lake, but on a hot day the mist from the top falls was very refreshing!

Gorgeous is all I can say. Def worth the walk. It's a quick turn around from Steamboat. Maybe two hours with the drive and plenty of time for photogs. Enjoy!

This falls never disappoints. It looks different each year. It si a very easy hike to the lookout area with wonderful flowers and shrubs along the way. If you have a National Park pass be sure and take it with you.

We took the short trail since we had our young grandchildren with us and after my back surgery I am not able to hike like I would could before. The grandkids could have handled the longer hike better than me. A quiet walk with beautiful plants/flowers and chipmunk sightings. Benches were good for a short rest. The falls had a... More

The 2.5 miles and 1400 feet of elevation gain to the second falls are worth every step. Give it a try.

Beautiful falls, very easy hike but worth the view, would definitely do again and not miss it. Take your dog if you have one.

My family of four (ten and two year olds) did the hike this a.m. I highly suggest getting an early start. When we arrived at 9:15 a.m. there was plenty of parking and it was a nice quiet hike. When we left, about 10 a.m. the parking lot was packed with cars circling for spots and the hiking trails were... More
