The falls are beautiful. It's a great spot for a picnic lunch and a hike. In the winter, there are ice caves. In the summer, there are hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties. The most popular hike goes up and around the side of the falls with an outlook reaching over the top, then back down the other side... More

You would never think driving back down a road which leads into the park that you would pull up to such a beautiful park. The falls are incredible. There is a path that goes up under the falls and one that goes around the top as well. Make sure to walk the upper path all the way around so you... More

I gave this rating only 2 stars because much of my coveted vacation time was planned around being able to go here and show my youngest daughter. My husband and I are from here and we didn't have any more time left to come back another day. It could have ruined my vacation, but being from here, I found other... More

I think everyone has the same feeling about this place - beautiful and peaceful. It is just a short ride off the main road to Rifle. There are a dozen or so campsites. My in laws used to love coming here because it is an easy drive (no dirt roads) and all the campsites have electricity. So, you are really... More

We had a lovely time at Rifle Falls. The air was crisp, the falls were still a bit frozen still, but beautiful. We went years ago in the Summer when the Falls were flowing. Nice place to picnic and play with the grandbabes. Great scenery and nice hikes. You can climb up to the top of the falls on an... More

We loved wandering around Rifle Falls as the path is not difficult and the waterfalls and small caves. There is also a camping area and a small outdoor theater area that can be rented. My husband thinks it would be a great place for a wedding.

Nice view but the water was very stinky! Easy access from vehicle to see it though. Our family enjoyed it. The caves are right past it on the trails.

Its a bit of a drive once you get off of I-70. However, this place is beautiful. Not only do you have the three waterfalls when you walk up, you can hike around the whole area. There are several caves that you can explore, some that go far enough back you will need a flashlight. There are also some ruins... More

A very nice place to go for people of all ages! You can take a hike, and go above the waterfall, or take a picnic and just sit and enjoy yourself on the picnic tables I go five times a year, it's incredible a very peaceful place to experience we love it have fun.
