  • Relatively easy shorter trail to upper overlook and lower falls on packed snow. Take the picnic trail to get to the base of the falls. The snow at the base looks like something Dr. Seuss would draw.

  • So pretty! There are a few trails to view this amazing waterfall and surrounding nature. We didn't wear the right shoes to go up the snow packed, longer trail to the top, but next time! There is a $5 parking fee but we were so happy to be able to pay digitally.
  • Must-do hike if your in steamboat. It was one of our favorite things we did. The lower falls is just a quick jaunt down about 1/4 mile. Kids love it.
