I took the main trail from the discovery center to the waterfall. This is well-maintained trail with good footing that goes up and down through canyon with several good lookouts. The first part of trail is easy and appropriate even for novice hikers, the main climb is over 1000 ft and there is another up and down before you to... More

We did various trails, including the Seven Bridges Trail which I found long but it was still enjoyable. We also got lost along the way so I would recommend getting a map of the trails. You get good views of the city and you can see some falls as well. From the Seven Bridges Trail, a local recommended we take... More

The Discovery Center closes early and we were not able to get in. The Seven Falls area has been closed due to damage and will not open until next year. However, Helen Hunt Falls was accessible and a nice quiet, serene spot. The drive up the pass to the falls is awesome. Make time to stop and get some great... More

We found the park by recommended hikes in a couple guide books. It is amazing that you seem to be one minute in the suburbs, and after a few minutes hiking away from town. We didn't spend much time in the visitor center, but did visit twice. Once to do the Columbine trail off of the visitor's center, and again... More

Our daughter took me and the wife there and I was not disappointed, the view's from different locations of the trail are breathtaking. The trail it self is a bit of a challenge but well worth it. A must see if in the area, Especially if you like water falls.

We hiked a couple of miles on Gold Camp Road and part of Seven Bridges Trail. It wasn't a difficult trail -- we saw people walking dogs, people pushing strollers, people of all ages -- but it offers some great views, and there are more challenging trails for those who are interested. I wish we'd had time on our visit... More

Our family of 5 made a quick trip to Helen Hunt Falls/North Cheyenne Canon Park on a Sunday before we left town. We had packed a picnic lunch and made the drive to the top of the road to the falls trail. There is an interactive center at the trailhead for the kids to play in, and plenty of rangers... More

Don't miss the Helen Hunt Falls and the various hiking trails in the North Cheyenne Canon Park! We really enjoyed the views and easy to moderate trails.

Very close to seven falls. Strenuous uphill trail but nothing to extreme. We stopped a few times to catch our breath but saw people of all shapes and sizes do the trail.
