Fish Creek Falls are a can’t-miss stop on any vacation visit to Steamboat. It’s a nice, fairly shot and not overly strenuous hike to get to the falls. One word of caution: like much of rural Colorado, the paths are easy to wander off of...More
Visited here over New Years weekend and went snowshoeing. A short hike to the bridge, then a longer hike past it. We saw an ice climber as well. Paid $5 on the honor system for access. Definitely a great place to snowshoe while at Steamboat.
Went snowshoeing with my husband just after fresh snow. Definitely a workout very strenuous. Was unable not to go up to the lake because the trail was difficult to find and cane up to a cliff. Would love to see this trail in the summer.
Hi all! We are headed to Steamboat Springs (end of July) for the first time. We are trying to figure out things to do and are a little lost. We have Strawberry Park Hot Springs and Fish Creek Falls on out list but are lost on the rest. We would like to go whitewater rafting but have been told it's too far away and that the rapids die down at the end of the month. Is there some sort of rafting (tubes or whatever) we can do that's close? Yampa River or is that more for canoeing and fishing?...More

You"re probably on the end of any decent whitewater rafting, maybe Colorado R. or an extended trip down Lodore Canyon on the Green R. However if tubing is your game the Yampa right thru town should be perfect.( Not to cold and not to high) Hot springs and falls are good, if youre into hiking, Flat Tops Wilderness up Devil's Causeway or Trappers Lake. Closer to Stbt is Buffalo pass + Rabbit Ears with tons of trails and views. You could go big on the water thrills at Stbt Lake or Stagecoach...More

Lots of good advice so far. Overall, a lot going on for short amount of time. I would eliminate/consolidate at least two stops so you can enjoy it a bit more. Your stops aren't all that diverse, especially in the mountains. In Colorado Springs, also plan to spend time in Manitou Springs. A program of Garden of Gods, cog and Manitou is all pretty compact. Are you planning to drive to Snowmass the day after your arrival in the Springs, or are you staying two nights? If you're only spending...More
Fish Creek Falls in Winter (4 Replies)
Is it worth going to the falls in the winter? Is the path cleared enough in the to get there with boots on? I don't ski and thought this would be a nice area to see.

Yes! The path is kept very clear and it is an easy hike to the top. My mother did it last Christmas and she has 2 artificial knees. The path down to the base of the falls will be more weather dependent as it is steeper and unpaved. It is beautiful enjoy!
