This is a must see in Steamboat Springs! We go every time we're in town and it never gets old. There's a paved path that would be easily accessible for the average stroller or wheelchair, as well as dirt paths to get to the falls.

We've been with kids as young as 8 months and everyone always has the best time.
It's a must see! Two trails offered. One is easy and concrete for those that needs a safe walk. The other trail down to the bridge is fairly easy. We didn't go any further due to my restrictions.
