The Helen Hunt Falls is lovely, child-friendly, and refreshing on a hot day! There are many child activities before the moderate hike to the Falls. For more challenging hikes, the rangers can direct you to many other trails. We took a couple hikes around the areas on their recommendations, and had a good workout climbing to see amazing views.

This is a must do if you are in Colorado Springs at all. We hiked several trails kids in tow and spent some time checking out all the amazing exhibits in the discovery center. It's also a great first stop since they have bathrooms. The staff if also wonderful and very helpful both here and by the Helen hunt falls... More

This park has Helen Hunt falls located at the end which is a gorgeous site. Be prepared to hike up steep stairs to the middle of the falls where there is a nice lookout spot for pictures. Make sure to wear tennis shoes and something you can sweat in for it provides great exercise for your calfs and lungs( difficulty... More

We hiked the Seven Bridges/Jones park trail, and it was a great hike. The bridges portion wound through a beautiful forest, crossing the stream seven times. Continuing up to Jones Park was a tougher trek, but resulted in some stellar views. It would be nice if there had been better trial markings, but enough people were around to have it... More

There are a number of trails in the park. The parking lots are relatively small, but that also help to limit the number of people that are on the trail with you. The views were well worth the hike up to the top and long the trails. Remember to bring water with you!

During our early morning sunrise visit the park was nearly deserted. Its a beautiful park with a great mix of trail lengths and grades. The hike up to the waterfalls is short but especially good.

We parked at the Starsmore Discovery Center and walked the Columbine trail (lower, middle, and upper) to Helen Hunt Falls, then turned around and came back (about 8 miles in total, I believe). It is simply beautiful, and the views are spectacular along the way. The trails appear to be meticulously cared for. I would describe the effort level as... More

Very interesting displays regarding history of the region and its people as well as information on flora and fauna. Be sure to drive up to waterfalls up the road.

Interesting, a bit intimidating. Worth watching the introductory video and information in the visitor center. Nice chapel.

We walked the short trail (1 mi. up and 1 mi. back) with our 4 pre/teenage kids. Took about an hour round trip - perfect for our "non-hikers". The views were absolutely amazing - overlooking the Broadmoor and 7 falls - beautiful! Definitely worth taking time to do. Trail does have a few spots with steep drop offs and some... More
