“Snowshoeing”
Review of Fish Creek Falls

We went snowshoeing/hiking here. There was slightly more than a foot of snow. The trails were fairly well packed. We walked down to the waterfall. It was alright there was a decent amount of snow so maybe that took away from it a bit. There are certainly better frozen waterfalls all over Colorado but maybe not that you can was a few hundred feet from your car to. We then snowshoed up to the overlook. The trail was packed and many people walked up in just boots. We decided to use the snowshoes which was nice for the traction if nothing else. It was a quick and easy hike, perfect if you are looking for a nice little hike. Looked like if you wanted to be adventurous you could go off and make your own trail and get a bit more use out of the snowshoes. The view from the overlook was pretty but again not breathtaking.

It was perfect for an easy close way to get some fresh air but not a must see. Sounds like if you are looking for a little more the longer trails might offer some better scenery.

Two different trails, one paved and perfect for the less mobile, the other has a steep decline/incline that is fairly easy to make. The falls are booming in the spring, but they run all year--definitely a stop to be made while visiting Steamboat.

Fresh powered and a beautiful snowshoe through the park. Would recommend it for anyone looking to take a break from skiing.

This is a super easy and very short hike to waterfalls. There is an overlook that takes about 4 minutes to get to and then also a 10 minute walk to the base of the falls. Nice spot for a photo.

My family enjoyed the short hike down to the falls. We're from a lower altitude, so that's about all this old lady could take. Lol. The sights were beautiful. Highly recommended by our resort and definitely worth the short trip from town!!
