We came across this place by chance having had a frustrating day in Canon on Easter Sunday (nothing much was open there). Great place to visit for hiking and walking, cycling and running or just taking a BBQ and lazing around. Great views, nice drive up through the mountain valley - an all round great place to chill, and plenty... More

The Helen Hunt falls were beautiful but there were no open bathrooms. Be sure to go before you make the drive up the canyon to see them

Three main hiking trails to choose from--Lower Columbine, Mid-Columbine, and Upper Columbine--plus Helen Hunt Falls, all within the main part of the canyon. But if you drive all the way to the very top, there is a big parking area. If you park there and hike the 3/4 mile of the dirt road (on the left as you first drive... More

Ran the Columbine trails to Gold Camp Road over to Spring Creek trail back down to trailhead today and wow! They did an unbelievable job fixing the trails. Still a great challenging run or hike. Enjoy this great gem in our city. Take water with you. Keep your eyes open for wildlife. You are in the mountains!

Great place for a day hike that is right outside the city. The Middle and Upper Columbine trail can get a bit steep, so if you are not used to the elevation it may be challenging.

Great place for seeing hummingbirds in the spring and just being with nature. My son's senior photos were taken here professionally and they are great. The area is well kept and the river close by is really nice. There's a bridge over the river, a building of stone - all really nice for photos.

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.
