It's about 3 miles out of town, but very picturesque, without being an extraordinarily hard hike, given the altitude. Worth taking the trip!

Beautiful falls. Definitely worth the $5. The kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks and didn't complain on the short hike down or back up. Perfect trip. Remember to please be courteous to others when parking.

Walk to the falls themselves is very easy and accessible to most. View points also handicap accessible. We hiked on to Long Lake which was a great hike, but rugged and steep in many places. Don't believe the sign!!! It is over 6 miles to long lake! Plan accordingly, but definitely go!

Fish Creek Falls is absolutely beautiful. It was the best $5 we spent all week. It's hard to imagine that something so beautiful is so accessible. The park rangers were extremely helpful and the trails are well maintained. Youngsters to Grandmothers thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. We actually went twice during the week.

These are beautiful falls that are easy to reach--the path to the falls overlook is short, paved, and a very easy walk. We liked that there was also a more difficult trail option to extend the hike and get away from the crowds at the base of the falls. If possible, visit early in the week and avoid weekends if...

I have been here three times and it wasn't until the last one that I realized you could easily walk to the base of the falls. Don't miss this view point. Great outing with small kids in a stroller. Easy paved path to walk on. I think it cost $5 to park.

The easy trail is not steep, quite short and will give a beautiful view of the falls. Paved the whole way!! For the more adventurous, you can even climb on the falls below!

This hike was pretty easy as described but looking at the falls was great. Nice little get out of the car and stretch your legs type walk. You can do both the upper trail and the lower trail and you get a totally different view from both spots. We went in July and it was a hot day but the... More

A scenic treat awaits you at Fish Creek Falls.Trees over 100 feet tall surround the falls and add to the beauty of the area. The fresh air and sound of the Falls are most appealing. My 6 year old grandson loved getting his feet wet and finding lots of rocks .Take the easy trail if rocky paths are not for... More

The hike to get to the falls is pretty easy and short. Beautiful. Highly recommend it. Dirt path. Areas for dogs to play in river.
