“Beautiful”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We went in April and the snow covered the walkway about 3' high so you need to make sure you have good shoes to walk in snow. There are two trails to the falls and we took the lower trail which was a little easier to walk on without good shoes. I couldn't go too far on the top trail before i started slipping. Although the falls was frozen on top, the water was running under the ice so the river was running and the scenery was beautiful.

“A must do!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We visited Steamboat in March and after reading all the reviews about Fish Creek Falls, decided to hike it. We rented snowshoes ($10 @ One Stop Ski Shop) and although we could have hiked the trail just as fine without them, we had fun with them. The hike was easy and breathtaking. The views no matter where you are standing or just amazing! We left our mark (initials) in the tree and plan to come back and visit. Our one concern was what to wear? We ended up wearing our snow gear, snow boots and layering up, which was a good thing, Because it started off really warm, then a faint snow, to a blizzard and before we finished it was sunny again. Got to love Colorado!

“Short and quick but worthwhile”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Did this on apr 15, lots of snow on the paths but it's all well packed down and easily hikeable without snowshoes. Do the overlook first then head down the lower trail to get up close to the falls. Gloves are a good idea for the lowest section across the bridge as the footing isn't perfect and you'll want to brave against the bank (which is snow covered). A few dogs on the trail seemed to get around with ease. Bring a camera and check it out!

“Must see”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Drive most of the way to the falls. Short, easy walk to base, providing spectacular view. More water runoff in spring; likely frozen in winter. More strenuous hike to top, and as with any waterfall, keep children away from edge. Child fell in a few years ago and Mom died attempting rescue. Tragic.

“Absolutely beautiful!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We went in April right after the first rain of the spring season. The hike was a little treacherous over the hard packed snow on the trail, but so worth it. There was snow on all the rocks and the falls were just beautiful. It's a short walk to the falls and only cost $5 per car. The best bargain in Steamboat!
