We hiked to the upper falls, a 5 mile round trip with a fair amount of shade and lots of wild flowers. The falls still had a lot of water, unusual for this time of year but not surprising considering our weather this summer. We hiked with a couple from sea level and the last half mile was hard for...

A beautiful location, Fish Creek Falls is a little less than 300'. The water comes from melted snow from higher elevations making its way through a fault line producing the natural wonder just outside of Steamboat Springs. There are well maintained walking and hiking trails for views of the falls. Parking is limited; $5 fee per vehicle. Unfortunately, educational information... More

The falls are beautiful, It's a little hike to get to see them, but there are 3 routes(easy, noderate, difficult) to get to view them.

A short walk in the woods and you are rewarded with an unbelievably gorgeous waterfall! Even the most execise-averse will enjoy. And to think there is kayaking here in the spring? Put that one next on the bucket list.

This is a beautiful place to hike but come prepared. There is an easy hike and then an extended more challenging hike.

Definitely one of the places you have to stop by on a visit to Steamboat. There is a very easy walk to the overlook, a pretty easy hike to near the bottom of the falls. From there you can hike a difficult 2.5 miles to the upper falls, or even continue yet another 2.5 miles to the lake. Note that... More

These falls in the National Forest are just a few miles out of town on good roads. They are very popular so parking can be a bit tricky in the small lots at prime times. There are several viewing options depending on your time committment and ability to hike. There is a fairly flat paved trail to a couple of... More

Fish Creek Falls is a short easy hike from the parking lot. The nearly 300 foot falls are beautiful and one could easily spend an hour just climbing the rocks and enjoying the beauty of the area.

Short, easy little trails to both the top and the bottom of the falls provide beautiful views. It's a beautiful, scenic place to stop while you're visiting Steamboat.
