Description

Fish Creek Falls (USFS Trail #1102) starts at a junction with Wyoming Trail and Mountain View. The upper end of the route is easier, rolling through forest and open meadows on a gradual descent.

The lower reaches of the trail are more rocky and technical, resulting in some challenging (sometimes hike-a-bike) sections.

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

For a better look at the terrain, check out this video.

It should be noted that the last 2 miles of this trail is double black and should only be attempted by experts.
