Love it, lots of water

The trail is totally covered in snow past the bridge up by the upper falls. The trail hasn't been traversed recently. After trudging through slushy snow we stopped on a high spot and enjoyed the view. The snow was slushy and prone to collapsing. Watch for bears. We had fresh bear tracks in the snow.

Beautiful hot springs, a great way to relax after a hike. The last part of the road outside of Steamboat up to the hot springs is packed dirt with inclines, chains are required in winter and AWD for rainy days.

Camping is available at the hot springs as well.

Great hike and the trail is in great shape

Nice paved trail to a beautiful waterfall.

Easy, well groomed trail. Keep walking past the falls for an out and back 10 mile trail.

Light to moderate traffic. Started around 10 am on Sunday (April 23) and saw probably a dozen people total. Amazing scenery and while the first part is a little steep for beginners, it's very much worth it.

A great introduction to the Steamboat hiking scene for the beginner hiker. Great views of the falls and a nice place to picnic if you pack a lunch.

It is a long hike and the end gets steep. Very enjoyable!
