Gorgeous!
May 2021 • Couples
Totally beautiful falls close to town. $5.00 fee. Upper trail to falls is all paved and handicap accessible. Easy 1/3 mile walk. Lower trail (highly recommended) is only 1/4 mile but definitely NOT handicap accessible. Recommend both.

Early Morning to Avoid Crowds -- Late Afternoon For Best Pics
May 2021
Easy hike and less than 30-min to walk trail to Overlook; then down to the falls and the bridge. $5 park fee (pay at sign/on honor system) and late afternoon is best for pictures as sun is behind you lighting up the falls. Early morning if you want to go when not many are there -- popular hike so gets crowded later in day. Also 5-mile hike at base of falls to high-mountain lake worth a visit.

Easy hike and great view
Apr 2021 • Family
Beautiful hike. $5 dollar charge at trailhead completely worth the trip. Close to main strip of steamboat springs. Hike is only .3 miles each way. Very easy hike and awesome view.

Scenic hike
Mar 2021 • Family
We had some time to kill so ventured up to the frozen falls. With the start of the spring thaw the water was beginning to flow. What a beautiful sight and sound! The hike was relatively easy, but pleasant and fun. I would recommend this area for a picnic or romantic afternoon hike.

Beautiful in the winter

I went with my husband and two ten year old children. We all enjoyed the hike and the waterfall. Don’t miss this if you are in Steamboat.

Such an amazing view and short walk.

This is an amazing quick hike, in the summer or winter. If you want to go to the upper falls, the summer is awesome! Sitting on a rock in the middle of a waterfall is so refreshing.

Beautiful
Dec 2020 • Family
$5 honor system parking and hard to beat free gorgeous views, nice amenities, steep climb in winter so recommend snow boots or climbing shoes or snow shoes to avoid falls. I would not recommend to older folks not steady on their feet. Remember the Beautiful falls will be frozen in winter!
Lots of good photo opportunities!

Great outing!
Dec 2020 • Couples
We visited the first week of December.  The trail to the lookout had not been shoveled, but it is very flat and an easy hike for all ages. It was so quiet with all of the snow on the ground! We went around noon, and we only saw four other cars there.

The lookout offered a beautiful view of the frozen falls. I am anxious to see what it looks like in the warmer seasons. Definitely worth the $5/vehicle for a quick outing. Restrooms are also available.

Can't see the falls from the top
Nov 2020 • Couples
The short hike for the overlook is pretty but you can only hear the falls. It's the only trail that's accessible for some, so it's still a nice walk. Take the lower, longer path for the full view. Nice bathrooms, even during COVID.

Beautiful backdrops. Easy trails. Kids ages 10-16 plus adults. Close to Downtown Steamboat Springs. Could spend 1-4 hours here. Dog friendly.
