The drive itself is short. The hike itself is short. This time of the year the waterfall was raging. You have a trail to the top and the bottom of the falls it was magnificent. A must do

We came into Steamboat Springs not knowing what to do. We stopped at the visitor center and they recommended Fish Creek Falls. WOW!!!! We parked at the first lot not knowing about the second, closer by 1/2 mile. No problem. We went the "easy" route...More

The falls are just stunning. Beautiful is not descriptive enough. This is a medley of beautiful natural views, bird songs and the music of the falls themselves. The wildflowers, trees and grasses are proof that leave Mutha Nature alone and she will astound. And I...More

This is an easy hike close to downtown Steamboat Springs. Park at the upper lot to save yourself 1/2 mile of trail next to a road. Remember to pay $5.00 to park to support the Forest Service. The trail is mostly paved but you’re still...More

There are trails here for whole family. Most trails paved and wide - to both top and bottom views of falls. There are range of length of trails as well. Views of the falls were spectacular.

Absolutely beautiful. My children 3 to 8 did the walk just fine and were able to play along the creek at the bottom of the falls

Easy access to a gorgeous waterfall and an easy/moderate day hike for the upper falls. We took our 7 year old and a group and enjoyed a backpack lunch for a leisure few hours of hiking!

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.

About 4-5 hours if you allow for photo stops and any time at Long lake.
