Fish Creek Falls is an easy to find attraction and the scenery is well worth the short hike. Seniors can use their golden age passport to cover the entrance fee.

Beautiful scenery. Rough trail, hiking stick is recommended for walking impaired visitors. We didn't make it to the lake beyond, but definitely hope to on our next trip.

Beautiful sights around fish creak falls, lots of nice walking tracks and really nice views. Past fish creek falls you can keep walking to a lake which is quite the hike, but according to my dad very worth it.

Not a bad two mile hike at all and TOTALLY worth the views! The upper falls are sweet! Highly recommend. Terrain can be muddy and definitely rocky. Be sure to wear proper footwear and maybe bring a day pack with water and a few snacks.

A beautiful view of the Falls awaits you at the 1/4 mile mark (somewhat steep and narrow trail down). Did not go further to the top. $5 parking is convenient to the trail

This is a must-see, must-do experience. It is so close to town and there is an easy walkway to see the falls if you can't walk very far and there are other trails to go down to the falls if you want to put your hiking shoes on. Very enjoyable.

We did the first 2.5 miles (5 round trip) of the recreation trail hike to the upper falls. This is a great hike - we are runners and the trail has a nice, steady incline and kept our heart rates going for the 50 minutes it took us to get to the falls. It may be a bit more difficult... More

A beautiful falls, just 2 miles outside of Steamboat Springs, CO. The site is in a small canyon, and the falls cascades down the mountainside, into the meandering Falls Creek. It is a truly awesome site.

It is just gorgeous. A short easy walk (1/4 mile from parking lot) to a beautiful setting. Don't miss this as it is probably the best natural attraction in Steamboat. Even if you go for the skiing or biking, go to see the falls

Hiked to the saddle toward Long Lake above the upper falls and cascades. Trail needs Km or Mile markers and could be better described as we were unaware there was an upper falls until we got there. Otherwise an excellent hike for those looking for a hike and nice easy short trail. To the lower falls for someone just looking... More
