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

We found the park by recommended hikes in a couple guide books. It is amazing that you seem to be one minute in the suburbs, and after a few minutes hiking away from town. We didn't spend much time in the visitor center, but did visit twice. Once to do the Columbine trail off of the visitor's center, and again... More

Our daughter took me and the wife there and I was not disappointed, the view's from different locations of the trail are breathtaking. The trail it self is a bit of a challenge but well worth it. A must see if in the area, Especially if you like water falls.
