Three hiking trails provide access to the caves, the top of the falls, and the creek upstream and downstream from the park. The Bobcat Trail follows Rifle Creek to the Colorado Division of Wildlife’s Fish Hatchery. Rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout are found in East Rifle Creek, which flows through Rifle Falls. Fish up to 20 inches long have been taken, with 10- to 12- inch fish being the average size.

The falls is a lush area of trees and greenery kept moist by the spray of the cascading triple waterfall. A trail will take you to a vantage point near the top of the falls.
