Don't miss the Helen Hunt Falls and the various hiking trails in the North Cheyenne Canon Park! We really enjoyed the views and easy to moderate trails.

Very close to seven falls. Strenuous uphill trail but nothing to extreme. We stopped a few times to catch our breath but saw people of all shapes and sizes do the trail.

I stopped by the discovery center just long enough to get directions to a trail I had heard about and wanted to hike. The staff was very helpful. While there I stopped by Helen Hunt Falls and hiked to the top. Very pretty, but also very busy. The 7 Bridges hike and My Cutler Hikes were gorgeous with amazing views... More

We stopped first at the helpful visitors center where we chatted with a ranger and picked up a map. The trail is well marked and lovely. At times you walk along a stream and much of the trail is shady. We passed other hikers all friendly and smiling.The scenery and vistas are beautiful.

Helen Hunt falls is smaller than I expected. But it is a short, easy, and scenic hike. If you are looking for a leisurely stroll close to town, this is a good choice to hike and enjoy the outdoors.

We came to see the falls and do some light hiking (3 kids in tow). The Helen Hunt falls is a very scenic area - plenty of picture worthy locations. There's a good hiking trail next to the falls that's easy for everyone ages 4+. There are plenty of overlook areas to take in the beautiful area. The visitor center... More

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.
