“Great way to enjoy the outdoors without skiing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

This was a wonderful way for me and my kid to enjoy the fresh mountain air without having to ski or spend hundreds of dollars on lift tickets. We loved it and appreciated the recommendation and reviews from fellow Trip Advisors. Thank you!

This is a beautiful easy walk. The falls are breath taking. We did the hike with a double stroller without issue

“Short Hikes with Great Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Short hikes, accessible by snowshoe, yak traks, and depending on the snow, good boots. Hike a short distance up to the overlook down the canyon as well as the view of the falls themselves. Hike down and you'll be below the waterfall looking towards it with the creek flowing below you. Either way, an easy hike with great views!

“Great Family Activity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

We visited Steamboat in March 2014 with our young family and wanted to get outdoors as much as possible. We rented some snowshoes ($10 @ One Stop Ski Shop - best price) and headed for the falls which is a short drive (3 miles) from downtown. We did the upper falls trail first and it was perfect for a young family and had some great views of the frozen falls. When we got back my 6 year old son and I decided to try the lower more difficult trail. I am glad we did b/c the view from the bottom of the falls is spectacular. We only went about half way to the bridge as the trail started to narrow but that was fine b/c we got to see the bottom of the falls. We did not have any trouble other than coming back up my son got a little tired. This is a great family activity and is inexpensive ($45 total for 4 people).

“Gorgeous and easy hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Loved this family friendly hike to see the frozen falls. It is shady so it gets cold quickly, so be prepared to bundle up and wear good snowboots or hiking boots, and there is a $5 parks fee so make sure to grab cash before heading there!
