Welcome to Rifle Falls State Park and its jaw-dropping Rifle Falls!
Featuring not one, not two, but THREE 80-foot-tall waterfalls, Rifle Fall State Park is arguably one of the most unique parks in the state, especially with the triple waterfall as its crowned jewel.
While most Colorado waterfalls are reachable via a long and strenuous hike, Rifle Falls is different, as the breathtaking Falls are handicap accessible and located a mere .1 mile from the road.
Trust us: Even in the dead of winter, these gorgeous waterfalls are worth checking out!
In addition to the triple waterfall, the 48-acre Rifle Falls State Park has plenty to offer, including small limestone caves, a swimming hole, various trails, and even drive-in and walk-up campsites.
