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.

One of the easier hikes for all ages and abilities but go when the water table is high for a more pleasing view of the falls. Foliage is tops however. Admission is $5 unless you have a Parks pass then free.

We took the shorter and flatter route to see the falls due to my husband's health issues. The fall colors made the walk so amazing and it was great to be able to include our dog on the walk. Would love to see it in the spring when it is really gushing, but still definitely worth the short walk!

Ran down and up it, and both times it was an amazing view. When coming from Long Lake, you can see where the falls start and see some of the falls higher up as well.

I'd suggest early mornings or weekdays for your visit as the easy (<1mi.) hike to the beautiful falls makes this a busy stop. The walk is wheelchair accessible most of the way, so good for those who have trouble walking as well.

Very cool waterfall and park but since it is so close to town and accessible it was very crowded. Worth fighting the crowds though!

This is a very short hike off the trail, but there's not a lot of parking up there so get there early.
