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.

I took the main trail from the discovery center to the waterfall. This is well-maintained trail with good footing that goes up and down through canyon with several good lookouts. The first part of trail is easy and appropriate even for novice hikers, the main climb is over 1000 ft and there is another up and down before you to... More

We did various trails, including the Seven Bridges Trail which I found long but it was still enjoyable. We also got lost along the way so I would recommend getting a map of the trails. You get good views of the city and you can see some falls as well. From the Seven Bridges Trail, a local recommended we take... More

The Discovery Center closes early and we were not able to get in. The Seven Falls area has been closed due to damage and will not open until next year. However, Helen Hunt Falls was accessible and a nice quiet, serene spot. The drive up the pass to the falls is awesome. Make time to stop and get some great... More
