All the trails at one point interconnect. Nice place for a family outing and there is a picnic area. The falls themselves are awesome, especially... More

We visited in late April during a light snowfall. It was beautiful! The walk down to the falls was easy enough, but with the snow it was pretty slick and slushy. Tennis shoes would probably be soaked through pretty quickly. We went about a mile past the falls along the "Long Lake" trail. It was really beautiful but quite a... More

These are not spectacular like Niagara or Victoria falls but if you fancy a short hike to see them, well 1/2 an hour should cover it. Pleasant enough but would I visit twice? No.

When you hike here locals tell you that these falls are the original picture for the Coors label. It is so true! An easy hike although some up hill. The full hike would be harder but a walk down and up can be done by most. Beautiful!

I love this park and the proximity to town makes it easy to fit an invigorating outing into an otherwise busy schedule. I go every time I make it to Steamboat. Good for all ages and abilities.

Good way to spend an hour or so. Nice views... easy hike (didn't do additional path on other side of bridge).

Definitely a great place to visit when in Steamboat and weather-permitting. Use the bathroom before you go because the bathrooms aren't so great.

Beginner hike on a gravel path to the falls. Great for all ages and abilities with only one steep part. Beautiful leaves and colors in the fall!

We hiked beyond the bridge about 2 miles up. Hiking poles and sturdy boots needed as plenty of snow and ice on the trail. There is a non-advertised turn off to the upper portion of the falls that makes the hike more than worthwhile. Tough climb (about 2k vertical) and tricky descent).
