A natural wonder, it's a thundering torrent in freefall during the spring runoff, and still an awesome sight at any time of year. An easy, paved trail from the parking lot is handicap accessible and leads to a beautiful overlook of the falls and a shelter from the elements. Another gravel trail leads to the base of the falls where... More

The hike to the lower falls is short and easy. There is a 5-mile hike to the upper falls, which is moderate and beautiful. Great hike for dogs too, but they need to be on leashes and ring plenty of water as well.

If you missed this hike you have missed one of the things that makes a trip to Steamboat great. Relatively easy hike with gorgeous views. Although it can get busy there is a lot of room to spread out. Try early morning or late afternoon. On our morning trip a black bear (cinnamon colored) ran up from the river to... More

Beautiful spot...not to be missed! Vista view on top is easy and relatively flat for all. Hiking down to the falls is a favorite of our children.

Short hike to a beautiful falls. You can then scramble on the rocks and get closer to the falls! Worth the trip, only 5 minutes from Steamboat!

Another must see in Steamboat. It is $7 for the state park fee. The walks are easy to view the falls and stick a foot in the creek. Make it a big day and continue on past the falls! Beautiful in the winter too...big and frozen!

Fish Creek Falls is a nice hike that starts close to downtown and is popular with tourists. It was busy when we were there--and the falls were overrun with curious chipmunks--one went right into my open backpack! We carried on up to the reservoir and back which made about a 10-mile hike.

A bit crowded, granted we came here on a Saturday. However, the waterfall and surrounding area are extremely lovely. Would love to return sometime during the weekday to escape the crowds.

It is just outside of town and only about a few minutes walk down a trail head that leads to a much tougher hike in a National Park (so there is a $5 entry fee). It is worth the money and the short walk it is a very scenic place.
