You can be there in less than 10 minutes from downtown Steamboat, so easy. The falls are especially nice right now with the spring melt and rain. Nice hike if you continue on after the falls. I agree, this is a top spot around these parts

This was a great hike with the entire family. The trails are either paved or very well kept...though got a bit soggy with all the recent rains. The views are outstanding, from the overlook as you approach the falls as well as the bridge below them. A couple bathrooms along the way make it extra nice for families.

Got there early this morning (Saturday and Memorial Day weekend and got a parking spot right at he trail head. It's only a couple minutes for the top parking lot and WOW!!! I continued to attempt the hike to the lake, it was really muddy in places but not too bad. I also got to see a MOOSE!!! Best $6.00... More

saw the forest service cut down a dead aspen tree, the falls were great, the hiking trails are very well maintained. Next time would take a picnic lunch to hear the sound of the falls.

It would have been a lot better if the sun were out and not ready to rain. The road was easy to find after visiting the Tourist Office where we got a lot of handy information.

Great view. Some climbing up and down required. Walking shoes. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

Wonderful hike for even the littlest to the most experienced hiker. Wheelchair accessible, all can enjoy the beautiful falls, more experienced hikers can hike to the top, 2400 feet gain in elevation over 5 miles. Beautiful.

Well worth the hike on the terrain; go to the bottom of the falls, it is worth the climb back up to the staging area; bring a camera

We always take visitors to see the falls. It's a short hike to the base that almost anyone can handle. For those in good shape there is a hour or more hiking trail to the upper falls.
