3. Fish Creek Falls
Fish Creek Falls, located near downtown Steamboat Springs, is a 280-foot waterfall that is a must-visit if you’re in this mountain town. Although popular year round among both hikers and ice climbers, this waterfall is especially breathtaking during spring when the snow starts to melt. To reach the base of the falls, simply walk a half mile from the parking area. However if you’re looking for more of a challenge, take the two-and-a-half-mile trek to the top of the falls.
