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.

Easy loop.

A pretty easy hike. I went about 4pm on a Wednesday and had plenty of time to see everything. The falls are caves were very cool. It was kinda crowed even at that time.

Very easy walk with beautiful waterfalls. Great in the evening, we hiked at 6 pm.

The falls are nice and unquestionably the highlight of the trail, though you don't have walk more an 30 seconds from the parking lot to see them. The trail itself takes you up above the falls, which gives a decent view. The caves are a unique feature, but the rest of the trail isn't anything too special.

We just did the Coyote Loop because we've been away from hiking for awhile and not yet acclimated to the altitude. It was a great hike, easy if your lungs are used to the O2 tension. Worth it otherwise. Steps on steep sections. Benches at several spots. Waterfall is really cool (three separate cascades) and the hike to them is not more than about 200 yds. from parking area and mostly flat to the base of falls.

Super easy hike but really beautiful.

Beautiful falls. Definitely climb behind the falls and up to the top. Some kids were hot boxing the caves...but i guess thats colorado. make sure to bring a head lamp or strong torch if you want to go in the caves.

was not a mountain bike trail

Easy trail, add Bobcat trail for a removal from the crowd that gather at the base of the falls, which are immediate at Trail heads. Camping sites and simple bathrooms nearby, does require a state park access: $7.
A lovely place and easy hike. The caves are fun; bring a flashlight or just use your phone.

The waterfalls make it worthwhile and you can do some quick cave dwelling. The drive to the area is quite beautiful, the state park and reservoir makes the trip exciting. It's a short trail and you can skip to the good parts if you want.
