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.
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.

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.
