The lower Fish Creek Falls is only a short descent down from the parking lot. Switchbacks lead towards the upper falls on the other side of the creek following the bridge crossing. You’ll pass through several aspen groves before reaching a final bridge to cross Fish Creek. A few more switchbacks and a short wide rock ledge lead to Fish Creek’s upper falls. Spectacular views of Steamboat through the valley will greet you on the way back down to the upper bridge.
