Pleasant trip

It is a highly accessible waterfall. The falls are bang at the parking lot. It's pretty scenic. There is a short walk till the top of the falls.

This waterfall was accessible to all. There were also hiking trails to caves and to a pond. The parking was very limited, wouldn't want to go on a weekend. The restrooms were a bit stinky, but it was nice to have them. There were picnic tables, first come first serve.

This place is awesome! $7 for the day pass, my family and I hicked the trail and spent about an hour here. The trail was easy, plenty of shade from the trees, we saw a fox, climbed in the caves, checked out the two small ponds at the top of the falls, with water so clear you could count every... More

We have visited Rifle Falls many times through the years. Starting when the kids were very little. They are now teens and still ask to go to the falls. Each visit is s new experience. The falls is a perfect day , inexpensive day for the family. Bring a picnic lunch, there are plenty of picnic spots. $7.00 a car... More

The falls are beautiful, of course, but the surprises are the winding trails that lead to abandoned fish hatcheries, limestone caves, and a gorgeous cascade falls. Parking is sparse, so don't be surprised if you have to drive around a couple of times.

Don't go! It's allows packed, there is no parking. It's fine if you like nature with tons of people!

This is a beautiful park! The waterfall is absolutely stunning and is a very short walk from the parking lot. There is a short hiking path (maybe 1 mile?) that loops around the back of the falls and there are some interesting caves that can be explored.

Had a nice time checking out the falls, trails are good to the falls, trail up to top steep and rocky, but not to bad for this old man (lol). Only thing bad is very limited parking, we were turned away for first visit, no parking spots, so we left and came back in a few hours and made it... More

There are 3 ways to get to the falls. You can either directly walk up to them after parking in a lot, taking you to the bottom of the falls. Or you can go up on the left side, which takes you past caverns and up to stairs. We went up this way, and came down the other side, which... More
