Rifle Falls Trail
About 15-20 minutes from Rifle is Rifle Falls, a 48-acre park that features a 70-foot waterfall with three prominent cascading falls that turn the area into a mountain oasis in the middle of the western slope. There are three trails that you can hike at Rifle Falls for all ability levels. The Rifle Falls trail goes completely around the waterfalls and feature caves for spelunking opportunities, ponds above the falls, and viewing areas from the top. The Squirrel Trail takes hikers on the south end of the park and the Coyote Trail connects the Rifle Fish Hatchery with Rifle Falls.
