This is a nice little trail if you are only wanting a short hike. Once the trail opens up to the creek and the falls, it is delightful. It has a quintessential little wooden bridge near the falls, great for photos. The trail was completely snow covered the day we visited. The falls were partially frozen. Trees completely white and...

Besides the obvious draw of the beauty of the Falls take advantage of the hike up to Long Lake, which takes you meandering through Aspen groves and rocky (yet still safe) cliffs. The views are spectacular and the exercise invigorating.

Easy path to bottom of Fish Creek Falls, downhill maybe 1/4-1/2 mile. Cross bridge at bottom of falls and continue uphill approximately 2 miles to top of falls. Steep but very doable. You travel through a beautiful Aspen grove that is stupendous in Fall. Good views along the way.

This hike is short and easy for a couple of the trails-- we loved it! My boyfriend and I went here after a good snowfall in November with heavy snow-pack. The drive to get there was easy from downtown Steamboat. We saw people ranging in age from child (about age 10) to elderly (in their 70's) plus a few dogs.... More

A short but steep walk from the parking area, Fish Creek Falls is one of the most recognized attractions in Steamboat. It's well worth the short walk to the bridge that crosses Fish Creek, with an amazing vista of the falls. For the more adventurous, continue up the trail 7 miles to Long Lake.

Take a very slow walk. Start on the high trail to the left. Go down the picnic trail, then to falls , and back up.

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.
