Great hike. Made it up to the second waterfall. Good incline hike up with pretty views. Took about three hours for round trip. Make sure to bring extra water. Hike to first waterfall on lower trail is easy, just a little uphill to come back.

Just gorgeous. The trails are maintained beautifully and crisp. It can get tough at the end (a little rocky) but overall a great hike for beginners to experts. Highest waterfall in Colorado. Try to go during weekday, weekends are extremely packed.

Amazing! The first falls is only a five minute hike and it gets all the glory (well deserved) however the second falls, which is a pretty grueling 2 miles later (2000 feet in elevation change) is the cream of the crop. When you cross the foot bridge- keep going. You will arrive at an area with falls to your right....keep going. The. You will be standing at the base of 2nd falls. A rock scramble puts you at the top. Beautiful views back to Steamboat and the canyon you stand in is unforgettable. We saw a golden eagle soaring above us and our hike out was at sunset, giving us an entirely new view. Make sure you have good shoes and pack water!

Just an absolutely beautiful short hike in Steamboat. Easy access with a small parking lot in the trail head. The falls are kicking with everything green and lush in the summer, and it's equally as impressive in the winter as a frozen glacier. A quick must-do in Steamboat!
