Great place to hike and beautiful scenery too. We went there to see Helen Hunt Falls and were told that we could follow a trail to see the Silver Cascades. The hike was a bit strenuous but DEFINITELY worth it!

I lived in this canyon for 10 years and loved it. My children loved the Starsmoor Discovery Center and I loved hiking along the canyon and up on the mountain (High Drive).

This is a great spot minutes from the Colorado Springs sprawl that takes you to the mountains. We swung up here to spend an afternoon, and with the wet month they had the waterfalls (like Helen Hunt falls) had a good flow. Beautiful, relatively easy hikes for families and others make this a perfect spot for getting into nature without... More

This hike was a WoW in more ways than one. To get there, you have to drive past the visitor center and the Helen Hunt falls. The road diverges and there is a parking lot where you can access the gold Camp Road. There is a barricade there to traffic, but it is accessible for hikers and bikers alike. After... More

This park offers a variety of hiking opportunities that you are sure to love. My personal favorite was the Mt. Cutler trail. It's a gorgeous area with babbling brooks, cool rock formations and waterfalls, and more. I have not been to the Starsmore Discovery Center but hear it's worth the trip. Enjoy!

If you want somewhere not packed with tourists during the summer this I the place to go. It has all the same beauty as popular places like Pikes Peak or Red Rocks or Garden of the Gods, but much more quiet. You can also get to some off road trails so make sure you have 4x4 ability.

This park is FREE to visit. The hike along North Cheyenne Creek, behind Starsmore is easy and good for kids. They can put their feet into the water too. Picnic tables are scatted along the creekside trail. After the easy hike, drive up to Helen Hunt Falls and hike up the hill for an amazing view over the valley.

The park rangers were so friendly and the Helen Hunt Falls were spectacular! We really loved hiking to the top as a family! I wouldn't take small kids up to the top..we met a few coming and going..all crying! It is hard to reach the summit. The park rangers told us of other free things to do in the parks... More

This park is very different from the Garden of the Gods as there are more trees and mountains here. Makes it cooler for sure during summer months. The Starsmore discovery center is nice as well so stop by to gather information and trail maps. We did two hikes here with our kids The Mt. Cutler trail is about a mile... More

Beautiful hiking in an uncrowded setting. There are some wonderful views but there is also a lot of altitude change which is not for you if you are out of shape.
