Easy hike - about 50 minutes out and 40 minutes back. Definitely in the sun so avoid mid summer days. Even your flatlander friends can do this and feel accomplished!

Great fall hike! There’s not a lot of shade at the beginning so probably best on an overcast day. Beautiful views of the waterfall, the aspen grove is stunning right now, the mine was cool to see, and the river at the end is a nice surprise. I’ll do this hike again. The trailhead is unmarked but easy to find. Walk down from the upper lot and it will be on the right.

Decent short hike. I think we were a week early for some really good fall foliage. Definitely recommend going on past the mine to where the trail ends at a creek. 4 stars for having to pay $5.

This was very moderate with borderline hard in certain spots. Continuous incline until you get to the Aspens. Trail is nice but lots of rocks so you may want hiking sticks. Mine was cool and view was great!

Fun hike today. Great views of Fish Creek Falls, and the mine was fascinating. Make sure you go to the very end, because there is a cool spot for a picnic at the river.

Great little hike, not too steep, nice view of the falls. The trailhead is unmarked and about halfway between the upper and lower parking lots. It’s on the side of the road with the sidewalk and is next to a big boulder. It’s well worn and easy to follow, you just have to know where to start. There’s a nice historical placard at the mouth of the mine when you get there.

Nice trail, with the river at the end of it. Lightly trafficked, especially given how busy the trailhead is. Lovely views of the falls and valley.

It’s an unmarked trail right next to a super busy trail. Parking lots were full for Fish Creek Falls, but we saw 6 people on this trail the whole time. It’s not too difficult, has a variety of sights and terrain. You see the abandoned mine near the end. My favorites were the view of the falls from the opposite valley wall, the aspen grove, and the finish line mountain stream. The water was low enough we could sit on boulders in the middle of the rushing waters and eat our lunch.

We hiked it at noon in July. It was hot for Steamboat Springs. The trail was in great shape and it wasn’t crowded!

Great hiking trail, very technical on a mtn bike. Views are great and the descent is fun, just ride it early in the day before it get crowded with hikers. To make it a longer ride with a fun downhill park at the parking lot by old town hot springs, and ride up fish creek falls road. Adds a 3 mile climb to the trail head and it’s fun to bomb down the road on the way back to the parking lot.

This was a fun little hike. Great view of fish creek falls and lots of wildflowers to see. There’s an aspen grove about halfway up that is beautiful. Not too many people on the trail for a Saturday. I counted 4 people total. I would do this hike again.
