Description 

The Fish Creek Falls area houses a great place for both summer and winter activities. One can enjoy a hike, ski, horse back ride, or if you're lucky and it's cold, some ice climbing.

Getting There 

Heading into town from Rabbit Ears Pass turn north on 3rd street once you get downtown. (Signs exist on road.) Take a quick right onto Fish Creek Falls Road and follow this road to the TH around 3 miles east. A short 10 minute hike down to the bridge and the falls will be visible.

I believe you have to pay $5 to park at the trail-head.

Climbing Season

For the CO Ice & Mixed area.

This line heads up the steep, chossy wall to the right of the Falls. The obvious bolt line should be apparent from the base of the frozen falls, right of the alcove. The rock quality is a bit to be desired, but that's what makes for exciting bolt-protected drytooling. A "second pitch" continuation could be installed to take you to the rim of the canyon. It is not a classic by any stretch but might be worth a go if you're down ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
