Fish Creek Falls

As far as Steamboat activities go, Fish Creek Falls is right there at the top of the popular places visitors enjoy. A quarter-mile paved trail leads to a pleasant picnic area, the lower falls, and for the adventurous visitors, a more difficult trail to the Upper Fish Creek Falls. This outing suitable for the whole family is only a few minutes out of Steamboat Springs and offers all sorts of Steamboat activities to keep everyone satisfied and entertained all year round. From hiking to snowshoeing and ice climbing, by the end of the day you’ll be left breathless, thrilled, and exhilarated.

The Trails

Four trails distinguish Fish Creek Falls and vary in terms of accessibility, length, and difficulty. The first is a quarter-mile long paved trail that is wheelchair accessible and easy elevation. The second is a dirt trail about the same length and leads to the base of the falls. Both of those trails are easy to hike for all age groups. The third trail starts from the base of the falls where the dirt trail ends and weaves its steep climb to the second fall. It is 2.5 miles long and is considered moderate in difficulty. The last trail is the longest and stretches for 6.5 miles all the way to Long Lake. It is the most difficult for all 4 trails and should give you a good cardio workout, not to mention the great view of the lake at the end.

The Waterfall

Who doesn’t like a waterfall? Clear and crisp water cascading down the side of a mountain to wash your heart and invigorate your soul. Fish Creek Falls is open all year round. During the springtime, the melting snow turns the mild falls into a roaring spectacle that attracts hikers and visitors alike. In summer the water is calm and pristine as it slides down the smooth surface of the rocks. The falls rise up to 280 feet and are easily accessed through the short trail leading from the parking area.
