“Beautiful and accessible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This city park is just amazing. In just a few minutes drive you will be secluded in a Rocky Mountain canyon that seems to be many miles from a city. There are many hiking opportunities as well as Helen Hunt falls. For great views take the Gold Camp Road back down to the city. It follows the old rail bed and includes a couple of tunnels.

“Awesome Free hiking and waterfalls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Loved this Park...we were going to the Seven Falls, which is about $10 per person and we saw this Park in the colorado vistor book. It was so pretty and easy to access the various trails. Loved the Helen Hunt falls.

“Beautiful hike on Columbine Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the Columbine Trail. Lower trail runs along a water stream. After that the view keeps getting and better as you climb. Do not be in a rush to reach the top.. Take time to enjoy the mountains, the superb view and the fresh air! When we reached the seven falls we were not impressed though. Do not expect "the Falls"! Other than that it is totally worth it. If you visit in the summer, go early in the morning and you will be done before it gets too hot.

“Trails for Different Levels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stop in the Discovery Center for a free map of the trails & direction to Starr Kempf's Metal Sculptures (2 blocks away). Trails are marked for hikers, horses & bikes & are off different difficulty levels. Drive up to the Helen Hunt Waterfalls. Picnic tables & parking lots up & down the winding road. Stream runs along the side of the road & views of the peaks are breathtaking.ALL FREE!

Great hiking trails. Our family hiked Mt. Cutler Trail and Helen Hunt Falls. Visited both visitor centers and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
