Did this on apr 15, lots of snow on the paths but it's all well packed down and easily hikeable without snowshoes. Do the overlook first then head down the lower trail to get up close to the falls. Gloves are a good idea for the lowest section across the bridge as the footing isn't perfect and you'll want to... More

Drive most of the way to the falls. Short, easy walk to base, providing spectacular view. More water runoff in spring; likely frozen in winter. More strenuous hike to top, and as with any waterfall, keep children away from edge. Child fell in a few years ago and Mom died attempting rescue. Tragic.

We went in April right after the first rain of the spring season. The hike was a little treacherous over the hard packed snow on the trail, but so worth it. There was snow on all the rocks and the falls were just beautiful. It's a short walk to the falls and only cost $5 per car. The best bargain... More

The Falls are incredible during the summer. Wonderful for a quick hike or even a long one. I do not take my young children near the Falls during Spring run-off. The waters are extremely dangerous and toddlers could fall along some of the paths close to the water's edge. Parking can get tough during the summer months, so we drop... More

We hiked to Fish Creek Falls in early April, and there was still quite a bit of snow. I only had tennis shoes and wished that I had worn boots, but the walk was still doable. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and it was well worth the walk. We didn't get to see the falls fully because of the snow,... More

Fun to go and see the falls. Really easy drive from town. In the winter it will freeze over and you can climb up to the base

Sorry, I mistakenly circled 4 instead of 5. Not sure if I was able to fix it. It is a definitely 5. We went on a sunny afternoon. Nice walk to the falls. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful. Great view. I think it was only few dollars per person.

This was a wonderful way for me and my kid to enjoy the fresh mountain air without having to ski or spend hundreds of dollars on lift tickets. We loved it and appreciated the recommendation and reviews from fellow Trip Advisors. Thank you!

This is a beautiful easy walk. The falls are breath taking. We did the hike with a double stroller without issue

Short hikes, accessible by snowshoe, yak traks, and depending on the snow, good boots. Hike a short distance up to the overlook down the canyon as well as the view of the falls themselves. Hike down and you'll be below the waterfall looking towards it with the creek flowing below you. Either way, an easy hike with great views!
