We took the regular trail to see the Frozen Falls. What a beautiful experience. With over 80" of snow on the ground it was a winter wonderland at its finest. What a treat to see the ice climbers at the falls! Don't wear shoes or sneakers in the winter. Some areas of the narrow path had several inches of snow.

A short and pleasant drive out of town into National Forest. Park and walk less than a mile to the base of the falls. There is a path that takes you to the top of falls and one that goes to the base. The base is where you want to be. There are maps at the site that show the... More

A great medium difficulty trail with a great falls at the end. It is easily accessible close to downtown Steamboat but will feel miles and miles from any town once there

A relaxing walk or snowshoe. Easy. Lovely even in winter. Nice in summer as well. Can do a loop trail.

My family enjoys Fish Creek Falls in summer and fall, but winter brings a very special and different experience. We hiked the trail after an overnight snowfall and the snow was still lightly falling yesterday. We took our snow shoes and although the snow outside the trail was really deep and fluffy, the trail was narrow and fairly compact so... More

Go in the Spring when the Falls is in full runoff mode! Beautiful Falls and a short but dramatic hike after a short drive.

An enjoyable and beautiful short hike. The Falls are frozen in winter and the view is wonderful. An easy hike for all ages. Highly recommended.

Nice short hike with some decent elevation climb. Trail was well packed snow. No need for trek poles. Falls where frozen solid but still worth the trip. You will need to pay $5 at the trail head. If you are in decent shape you need about two hours with stops in the winter without snow shoes.

Great hike to see the falls! beautiful pillows of snow over the creek and the falls were frozen over. Such a picturesque place, be sure to bring the camera! There were lots of different paths to hike, and you could choose how far and how intense you want to go! There was a ton of snow on the ground, and... More

Got a taxi here as the free town shuttle doesn't go this far, the walkway goes along the creek with a large frozen waterfall at the end. The frozen waterfall is impressive and there were people climbing it too.
