nice hiking

The weather was beautiful. The hiking trail was not too hard or too easy. We hike up to the top and hike down to the bottom. The views are amazing. love it.

This is the must stop in Steamboat. You must see the falls from the upper walk (very easy) or from the bottom (much more difficult). The view is amazing in both cases. Go early or go late to avoid the crowds.

My husband and I had a wonderful hike. There are two ways to view the falls. One is paved and requires virtually no effort and is 1/4 mile. It goes to an scenic view from above. THe second way to access the falls is 1/5 of a mile downhill on a bit of an easy trail. It leads to a... More

This is a great trail beyond the first falls to the second and beyond to Long Lake. The views are amazing and the climb is somewhat challenging but certainly not extreme. There is one or two spots where if you're afraid of heights might be a problem. Well worth the effort and very close to downtown.

This is a must do when visiting Steamboat as it is beautiful, close to town and anyone can do it! It's a short hike to the overlook and to the base of the actual falls so children and grandparents alike can handle it. The surrounding scenery is nothing short of amazing especially during the fall. Parking is somewhat limited as... More

Don't miss this spot. There are different hiking trails for all ages and ability levels. There is plenty of parking for $5 per vehicle. The drive to the trailhead is beautiful.

It is definitely worth the hike. The hike to the lower falls is definitely steeper coming back up but worth it. Beautiful view from up top as well. Good foliage color today!!

From the upper parking lot at Fish Creek Falls it is an easy hike to see the beautiful falls and to listen to the roaring creek. There is a neat bridge at the base of the falls which makes for a nice photo op. Past the falls is a 5 mile hike to Long Lake which takes you up a... More

Fish Creek Falls is said to be the falls that is on the Coors Beer label. Not sure if this is true but it is very similar. The walk to falls is short and paved. There is additional short, paved walk to the stream level where there is a wooden bridge that crosses the stream. It's very pretty and worth... More
