Helen Hunt Falls was amazing to see and hear. WE love waterfalls and are so glad we came to see this one. Then got some great advice from Park Staff who suggest we hike the 7 bridges trail. This trail starts up above the waterfall -it's 7 miles round trip -most of which is shaded -along the creek -and you... More

I hiked with 10 adults and 6 kids from ages 2 to 14. The hike is not that difficult up the the seventh bridge. We did not climb higher due to time restraints. The scenery is amazing and I highly recommend the hike. However, do not park away from designated areas. My brothers cars gat broken into.

The parking was plentiful, lady in centre friendly and helpful, views of humming birds at feeders exciting and a range of walks to suit all abilities. As under the trees not too hot.

Yes, Seven Falls is still closed but Helen Hunt is open beautiful. The ranger says it's the best it's been in years due to previous drought. The hike up to the scenic overview from the Hunt falls parking lot is only 1/3 of a mile but straight up. Not for the mobility impaired. But it's totally worth it if you... More

We visited on the 4th of July (Park was packed) so besides the crowds it was a great experience! I imagine on a non holiday it's more serene. Crowds or no crowds this is a must stop if your in the area. There is no cost to enter the park or for Helen Hunt Falls. Stop by the visitor center... More

Aside from its free, the view is breathtaking when you hike through the mountains. You can see the seven falls from a distance.

Compared to ll the roads I drove in Colorado, Aspen, Glenfield Springs, Vail, this road tops the lot. The scenery is amazing, lots of free parking and loads of hikes, just drive up stop off and go in the hills, best kept secret.

We enjoyed climbing rocks and Helen Hunt Falls. Kids bought geostones to break and find what color they are. We spent at least 2 hours enjoying the canyon and it was free:)
