I live here so we go up to North Cheyenne Canyon in the summer. It was still being cleaned up after last summer's storms at the end of last summer..but that's done. There are some lovely hikes there from beginner to hard intermediate. The Discovery Center is a good place to stop for info. It's at the base of Helen... More

North Cheyenne Canon Park has wonderful hiking trails of all levels of difficulty. Helen Hunt Falls is beautiful with a short hike behind it. The Starsmore Discovery Center has many interesting exhibits and activities which you can find on the web. If you're in Colorado Springs, you don't need to drive far to feel like you are in the middle... More

Lots of nifty trails thread their way off the road that snakes up this canyon with nearby parking access. I was there on a mid-week day so it wasnt crowded but still plenty of people on the trails. Wide and well maintained access used by hikers, bikes and horse at points. Views are awesome and you get to see Pikes... More

We were looking for a couple of short hikes near Colorado Springs. Hard to believe that such a beautiful park is so close to the southern area of CO Springs. The hikes were beautiful, and the vistas overlooking the Broadmoor and southern CO Springs were gorgeous.

Take lower gold camp road up to the falls. We've lived here for a while, and almost.every weekend go up to the top. Absolutely the most beautiful view in the springs. In the hot summer.months we can spend.all.day relaxing in the water. My favorite place in Colorado springs.

This oldest of Colorado Springs city parks is 1600 acres of wilderness with creeks and waterfalls, hiking trails and a beautiful visitors center, Starsmore Discovery Center. In the summer there is a visitors center at the top of the canon facing Helen Hunt Falls. Kids can get snacks, simple beverages, bathrooms, toys, books and fun gear for those discovering the... More

7 falls was still closed due to flooding last summer, but visited Helen Hunt falls. 2/3 mi hike to top. Gorgeous in winter. Very nice driving on the canyon road as well. Did not go to Starsmore.

Wow, what a beautiful park! It was a beautiful drive and a beautiful hike. The trees and mountains are breathtaking... and it's free! Also, it doesn't take long to drive to the end of the mountain road. Cheyenne Canon Park is a must-visit. We will definitely be back!

This is nice, but a little off the beaten path, and the location in a canyon with trees hides the views you can get if you go deeper into the N. Chenne Canyon park. The road is paved.

Best park in city was heavily damaged by floods in September '13. Gold Camp Road likely will never reopen to vehicular traffic due to damage. Trails are also damaged but once repaired Columbine and Mt Cutler are my favorites. Starsmore is great little free visitor center at the entrance to the park.
