The Rainbow Falls Historic Site consists of the namesake Rainbow Falls and a small series of waterfalls downstream. The five acres are developed with a parking area, trail head, covered kiosk with historical and geological interpretive information, picnic benches and tables, a 0.15 mile trail from the parking area to the Falls, secondary trails along Fountain Creek, and viewing overlooks.
Rainbow Falls is closed for the season and will open in Spring of 2021. Please see the Events/Programs tab for special winter events.
To combat the COVID-19 Virus and be respectful for the health and safety of our citizens and staff, if the parking lots are full please consider coming back at a different time.
Masks are strongly recommended while visiting the site. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
