We hike here all the time. There are easy trails to long day hikes. All are beautiful. The Discovery Center is interesting and the staff are very nice. Hummingbird feeders in season are fun! Mountain bking at the top (Gold Pass) is great. Go early during summer as parking areas fill up fast.

Beautiful, well kept park with amazing trails for all skill levels. Gorgeous views and plenty of perfect picnic spots. It will be a shame to see the Broadmoor take away the strawberry fields openspace. It's truly unbelievable that this gem was sold off to make room for a golf course. At least there are still many, MANY beautiful trails that... More

Amazingly-beautiful rugged mountain peaks, sheer cliffs. Only problem: a forest fire ravaged the area and you'll see that timber. Plenty of places to hike. Maybe the BEST mountain scenery in the area although I also loved Seven Falls. Everybody knows about Garden of the Gods. North Cheyenne is less well known but more jaw-dropping to enter an gawk.

Came up here to hike and geocache. The drive through the canyon is gorgeous, with lots of pullouts & trailheads. Be aware that the road is steep in places. The end of the road has a huge parking lot that was nearly full in the morning (in November!), but less busy by noon. There were NO restrooms at this trailhead,... More

Beautiful water falls, and I've heard the hike is great (not a hiker myself, so you can't get my opinion on that part). Even the frozen falls are cool.

Very nice park. Lots of trails. Lots of waterfalls. Lots of picnic areas. Lots of photo opportunities. But, restroom facilities are not always easy to come by.

What a wonderful place to visit. The hikes are challenging but so worth it!! Loved all different overlooks and Helen Falls.

This is a very neat little park right in the middle of the city. The winding road takes you up through a forested canyon with jagged rock formations. There are multiple hiking trails that look fairly rigorous because of elevation gains. We didn't have much time, so we just did a short hike by the water fall, but it was... More

My husband and I went here two days in a row to hike. We found the trails to be perfect for a 2-3 hour hike full of excitement and outstanding views. We would come here again if ever back in the area. We did Mt Muscoco and Seven Bridges:

I was wowed by the drive through the Canyon on the way to Helen Hunt Falls. But the sun was setting, so I decided to return the next morning to check out some of the many trails along the way. I recommend starting at the top (past the lot for the Falls -- where there's a bigger parking lot), and... More
