Take the time to stop off in Rifle and drive the 10+ miles to find this hidden gem. You will need pay for a state park day pass to see it, but it's a lovely small trio of falls you can explore easily from the...More

Not at the falls themselves but if you keep going on the road that leads to the falls, after the canyon where's there's world class rock climbing, there are trails.
