  • 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 love to climb down the embankment and explore the large rocks along the riverbank. There are also advanced hiking trails that lead to the upper reservoir if you're able to make the trek. 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.
