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.
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.
