Rifle Falls, Colorado
Pool and limestone boulders at the base of Rifle FallsNext

Rifle Falls State Park in northwest Colorado contains a short section of Rifle Creek, centered on a rare triple waterfall, where the stream drops over a limestone cliff into a lush area of pools and undergrowth. Nearby are some small limestone caves, while the park also has a popular creekside campground and three short trails. The falls are 13 miles north of the little town of Rifle, in a generally remote, peaceful area.
