These falls are a hidden beauty. I probably should have waited a few days to get used to the altitude but it was worth the deep breathing. The creeks winding its way down the path is breathtaking. Will love to repeat this in the spring.

For a number of years, I missed this scenic vista a short walk from the car 10 minutes from Steamboat Springs. There are two paths, one of which brings you to the bottom of the Falls in a short walk. Great pictures! Easy walking.

Took the overlook trail since it was a bit snowy and icy. Could definitely hear the falls but never actually saw them. It was a lovely walk however with snow covered trees. Weekend day so lots of families walking the trails.

Easy short walk down a paved path to get to the falls. It was beautiful with the aspens blooming all around. Very short drive from downtown Steamboat. Definitely worth a visit.

Very scenic, although awfully crowded, short drive from town, would like to check out the trails, someday?

Trail is part of the Routt National Forest. I would check with them first.
