Love the Starsmore visitor center because they hang up hummingbird feeders. Can hear the hummingbirds as they fly in! Love Helen Hunt falls too and the water is roaring in the spring! SO COOL!

A wonderful place to enjoy nature and hiking. We went during the week and had the place to ourselves. Incredible views and great hiking trails.

The North Cheyenne Canon and especially the Seven Bridges Trail is one of my favorite places in Colorado Springs to go. The solitude that it provides on an early morning (before it gets crowded) is incredibly relaxing. I especially enjoy hiking the trails in this park when its snowing. Parking can get a bit crazy on a nice weekend, which... More

Came to this beautiful park today and did the Mount Cutler trailhead. Most of the trail is a steady elevation up. Immediately you'll begin to see some spectacular views. At every turn the trail path was gorgeous. This Florida girl is not used to high terrain so some parts of this hike became a bit too scary for me. As... More

After you finish at Helen Hunt Falls head down to a picnic area in the canon and get near the creek for a peaceful experience. From there head to Starsmore and view the gardens, try a hiking trail or visit the Discovery Center. Depending on your interest, there are lots of things to experience.

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.
