Helen Hayes falls were very pretty. Walk to top was not too bad, but should have shoes with soles that grip. Steep walls along canyon so not the best place for casual hiking. Lots of climbers there.

We tried to visit the park on a weekend and it was so crowded that we couldn't find parking so we went back during the week and had a great visit. The canyon is beautiful but my favorite was the hike to The Seven Bridges.

I think part of going on vacation is to find free entertainment. Along with the Garden of the Gods, this fits the bill for great trails, long or short. Friendly staff at the visitor center.

Entrance is FREE, part of Colorado Springs Parks System, Starsmore and the Helen Hunt Visitor Centers are only open May-Oct. The park is full of water falls - the main attraction being Helen Hunt Falls, then you can view Seven Falls after a short hike up Cutler Trail (1.5 miles,) then you have Silver Cascade Falls a hike above Helen...

Beautiful place to visit and hike. Even with the dreary weather we encountered, it was a terrific place to go! We hiked there multiple times during our 5 day stay. Awesome views and a great day in nature

The guides at Starsmore seem to love what they do, from giving mini-lectures on hummingbirds to showing kids how to build tepees. They have great opportunities for elementary school groups. It is free to visit the little museum, and the hiking in the canyon is first rate. Dogs love the hike because of the stream running along the path. The... More

We took an easy hike right off the Starsmore Center. Kids aged 4-9 loved it. Path follows stream with opportunity to be right by it. We had the opportunity to watch a large group of young adults repelling down a cliff. Discovery center is very kid oriented with several hands-on activities.

Beautiful, well maintained zoo. Many interactive opportunities. Giraffe exhibit is vey large and fun for all. There are several restaurants and snack areas, which are predictably rather expensive. Outside food is allowed.

For the locals, this is great stuff. For visitors even better. Get to know Colorado, there are easy trails and those that can get more difficult but you can always turn around or find places to stop and mix up hikes. Today we hiked Columbine lower, mid and upper and it was a lot of fun! Not too crowded and... More
