Easy 'Hike'
Sep 2021
One of the iconic things to see in Steamboat. There is a short mostly level paved path to the observation point at which you can view the falls.
You then can choose to go further, down to the creek. Part of it is paved and parts gravel.
The parking lot is small, so go early!
Nice place to pause and take in the beauty of the area.

Easy hike to see waterfall close to town
Sep 2021 • Couples
Two short easy hikes to see the falls. One goes to overlook, the other to the base (which then leads off to longer, more difficult hikes). Nice forested area and stream. Cost is $5 but no attendant there today to collect so you paid on the honor system. You put your money in an envelope and inserted it into a pay box. The trailhead also had a sign board showing you how to pay with a credit card (through recreation.gov) but there’s no cell service/wi fi so that didn’t work. We didn’t have a $5 bill so a very kind couple who walked up at same time threw in a $10 bill to cover to cover us both. Kind people enjoy nature!!

Beautiful hike
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great place to begin our vacation! We went early and there wasn’t many people around. Plenty of parking. It’s a beautiful path with the sound of the falls and the creek running through. Great bridge to take fun photos. You can also hike/climb up to the waterfalls, which we didn’t do. It’s a but more of a intense hike to do this.

Wonderful and Budget Friendly
Sep 2021 • Friends
5 stars due to the proximity to town, the easy 1/4 mile hike from the parking lot, the beauty of the falls and creek, and the fact that it only costs $5.

Easy hike to a beautiful waterfall!
Aug 2021
We went there twice! The first time we went a little to late and parking was difficult. We walked to the overlook (very easy) and then left as we had other things to do. We went back early in the morning and parking was a breeze! We pretty much had the trail to ourselves, and this time we took the hike that leads to the old bridge at the base of the waterfall. Its really pretty! The path is narrow at times with steep drop-off so if you have little ones with you keep them close. We are a senior couple and had no issues with the hike.

Great for little ones too!

It was surprisingly beautiful for the short walk from the parking lot to the falls observation deck. We had 2 and 3 year olds that were able to walk most of the way, even the trail that went down to the creek.

Beautiful falls...well worth a visit.
Aug 2021
Not sure what else needs to be said...don't miss these falls if you are in the area. Easy walk from above; moderate walk but well worth the experience to lower falls.

Fish Creek Falls Trail Hike
Aug 2021
Gorgeous but challenging hike. We arrived early before many visitors arrived but the trail had great views, nice climbs, and well worth the effort. It is a must see of the area.

Great view from Overlook Trail
Aug 2021
We had a great time exploring the falls. Park in the upper (second) parking lot. We had a stroller and used the paved overlook trail. Great choice for our group. Fun thing to do in Steamboat.
