North Cheyenne Canon Park has the best set of easy to moderate hiking trails close to the Springs. Get a map at the Discovery Center at the base of the park. The Mt. Cutler trail is a short trail to the top of, well, Mt. Cutler. Great views along the way. You can see the Seven Falls from the backside.... More

Love stopping by to hike the trails, can go all the way up to Helen Hunt Falls if you like...remember you have to come back down the same way! Parts of the upper trail get a bit steep, but not too bad. Colorado's natural beauty is showcased well at this park.

If you want to spend some time outdoors in a beautiful setting without as many people around. This is your place. Great trails and park.

This is a beautiful canyon to drive hike or ride with wonderful vistas from the trails ending in a beautiful waterfall at the end of the canyon. Completely different than garden of the gods. Must see if visiting the springs. Its west of the Broadmoor.

Very helpful and friendly staff. This is a nice and informative small museum that is free to visit. There are also some very nice and well maintained trails and beautiful water falls.

Since moving here in August we hike here most every weekend. If you start down near the visitors center you will pass many others who are enjoying the picnicking and park, however the trail itself is usually free with passing others occasionally. Helen Hunt Falls and Seven Falls are both nearby, and the recent flooding damage has been largely restored... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Colorado. Nice moderate trails going alongside but away mostly from the road. Didn't visit the educational center but looked nice.

Cheyenne Canyon is always a pleasure with its steep surrounding cliffs, its babbling creek, many spots to stop and hike, and especially Helen Hunt Falls. The falls have a visitors center nearby, and they can be viewed from the road. But hiking up from the falls, though steep and challenging, has many rewarding views amid a forested trail.
