Fish Creek Falls is an inspiring place to visit! There is plenty of parking, and the walk to the falls is easy. The falls themselves are impressive; if you are in Steamboat Springs, you don't want to miss Fish Creek Falls.

This is a beautiful place to visit. It is a Federally operated park. The walk to the falls from the parking lot is just a few blocks. There are beautiful views also surrounding the falls.

We did the short side of this hike (to the first waterfall) and it was absolutely beautiful! We had a family reunion in Steamboat in July, and it was the perfect time to go to these falls!

Worth the short walk; falls are very pretty and the river is photogenic. Take a picnic lunch, lots of tables!

Hike is downhill to the falls just 1/4 mile but so worth it. Trees were golden and the sky was bright blue. Pines were dark green. A visual delight.

We hiked down to the falls and the paved overlook. Total combined trails were about 1 mile. There is a 5 mile hike (10 total) but we were taking it easy. Trail is very nice and improved.

This is an easy drive just out of town. Parking can be difficult on crowded days. There is a $5 entry fee unless you have the Natioonal Parks Pass. The walk on the upper path is easy since it is totally paved. The hike on...More

In the "shoulder seasons", it's anyone's guess. Personally, we hiked almost to the top with boots in early October, but the trail eventually got a little too icy and slippery and we turned around.
