Description

Fish Creek Falls (USFS Trail #1102) starts at a large parking lot, and ends at a junction with Wyoming Trail and Mountain View. The lower reaches of the trail are more rocky and difficult, resulting in some challenging sections.

The upper end of the route is easier, rolling through forest and open meadows on a gradual ascent.

Fish Creek Falls is often used as a shuttle, connecting with the Wyoming Trail from either Buffalo or Rabbit Ears Passes.
