Tiny But Mighty, The Smallest State Park In Colorado Is A Hidden Gem Worth Exploring
If you have ever stepped foot outside in Colorado, you know that our landscapes are amazing, making it THE best place for outdoor recreation! All of this said, it should come as no surprise that even our state parks are also some of the best in the country, including this one that is small but mighty:
Welcome to the unforgettable Rifle Falls State Park!
Tucked away near Rifle, Rifle Falls State Park encompasses a mere 48 acres, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for with its incredible landscape, the most notable of which is the picturesque triple waterfall.
Standing at an impressive 70 feet tall, the triple waterfall may just be the crowned jewel of Western Colorado, thanks to not only the water itself but the travertine dam and nearby limestone caves.
Like all great state parks, Rifle Falls State Park also boasts incredible hiking opportunities, plus fishing, wildlife sightings, and camping.
Who says that bigger is always better?
We sure don't!
Admission to Rifle Falls State Park starts at $9 per vehicle per day, with overnight campsites starting at $22.
