Rifle Falls State Park's lush vegetation and waterfalls have attracted photographers and movie crews from around the country who come to capture the area's unique scenery. The falls is a lush area of trees and greenery kept moist by the spray of the cascading triple waterfall. Picnicking near the falls is very popular. Mysterious limestone caves beneath the falls entice spelunkers and other curious visitors to explore their dark depths. Because of its dramatic setting, many weddings and events have been held at Rifle Falls.

Campsites were amazing..
The short hike is absolutely beautiful, the caves and waterfall are so much fun..Go early and it isn't too busy. More people started showing up the warmer it got.

Waterfalls were nice, the canal was interesting. Great campsites.

Beautiful place and very scenic. The hike to the hatchery was gorgeous but not much to see at the hatchery. I recommend going in the morning because it starts to get crowded in the afternoon.

Awesome little trail! beautiful scenery :-)

We grabbed a campsite for a short stint at Rifle Falls over Memorial Day, and I couldn't be more complimentary of this place! The camp site was roomy, well-shaded, spaced out from its neighbors, and right by the creek. The trails are little more than easy strolls. The falls are beautiful and have lots of interesting cave nooks to explore. Overall, wouldn't come here if I were looking for a strenuous spot to exercise, but to down a couple beers and enjoy the nature? Perfect. Very relaxing, great climate, lots of greenery. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend away.

Very short easy trail- loved the falls. There is a stairway that takes you up the left side to get somewhat behind the falls. If you go up the right side you get to check out the awesome caves and it takes you on top of the falls. Of course you can make the hike a little longer by following other paths

Beautiful trails along the creek and falls. Keep going up to the Bobcat trail if you want to do any distance. The underbrush was think in spots, so wear long socks.

Amazing waterfall, Great caves to explore behind the falls. I wouldn't say this was a hike, a small walk, if you go to the far parking lot.

Pretty trail, nice views, beautiful waterfall.

Great kids trail. Lots of things to see and talk about to the kiddo. One spur of trail goes almost right under the main fall. Others are cave like. Lots of fun for family outing.

This is a beautiful park- try the Coyote trail to walk above the falls. Lots of caves to explore- bring a good flashlight. We will definitely go there again!

Fun loop trail that leads from the base of the waterfall to the top of the waterfall. Also has some caves along the trail.

Easy trail seeing waterfalls, mountains and beatiful trees.

Easy hike, flat gravel path. Little incline if you go up around the back to on top of the falls. Great scenery.

We stopped at Rifle Falls on our way to Glenwood Springs, CO. This is a fun, short hike and the waterfalls are beautiful.

My wife and I have done this short hike a couple of times when we drove by on our way to Missouri it is cool to walk behind the water falls but be careful it is slippery. we spent about an hour just hanging out enjoying the view and clean air.
