4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

There are outfitters and guides in the area who can take you ice climbing on the falls during winter months. Super experience!

“Great hiking area - from very easy to long and difficult!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

We love the Fish Creek Falls area! We own a vacation home in Steamboat and it is perfect for all of our visitors. . from those who only want a paved, non strenuous walk to see the falls to a 5 mile or so hike up the mountain!

For those who don't do altitude or distance well the short walk to the overlook on the upper path is a beautiful stroll with a fantastic final view. I would guess this path to be about 1/2 mile from the upper parking lot.

For those more adventurous, you can go down to the falls, to the upper falls or even up to the top of the mountain. There is good signage at the site and nice picnic areas.

There is a $5 fee to park, but it is well worth it.

“Beautiful views, if you hike it to top pat self on back! Not easy but worth when you get there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011 via mobile

Amazing views, from parking lot and observation points. Took trail to waterfall. Not in hiking shape, elevation and steep incline slowed me down. Took husband and I two hours to get to top. That's counting resting and photo opportunities. A few times I wanted to quit. Glad I did it!!
