Great locale from which up hike various levels. Large parking lot- $5 fee per car. A very short overlook hike to a little bit longer hike to the reconstructed- historic bridge by the falls. Or go for a several mile hike up the upper falls....More

This is a beautiful place to go...nice short walk down to the bridge or hike on up to the falls! We have always loved this place. Our daughter got married here, so it's got a little extra special place in our hearts now.

Not only is beautiful Fishcreek Falls a close drive from downtown Steamboat and Strawberry Hotsprings, but it's also wheelchair accessible! My mother and I came here in the summer of 2017 where we were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful pathway to the falls,...More

In the summer on a beautiful day as you approach the falls you begin to feel its refreshing breeze that it produces. You can feel the rush of cooled air and feel the power of the rushing water. Its awesome and worth the short walk.

A short but pretty drive from town, this is a must to visit for any nature lover/hiker. Ample parking, small entrance fee and a not too difficult trail. Several great spots to get photos of the Falls and the view from the bridge is spectacular....More

Highly recommend visiting the falls, and if you have the opportunity to visit it at different times of the year do it. It changes and is always beautiful.

We went in January so snow on ground but it was still a beautiful trail and scenery. A family park with hiking and trails.
