A short drive from Colorado Springs, this quickly became one of my fave go-to spots for hiking! There are a variety of trails for different skill levels and the staff and volunteers at both visitors centers (Starsmore and The Cub up by Helen Hunt Falls) were so friendly and helpful! Definitely a must-see for hikers and families who want to... More

From the reviews on here I figured it would be nice, but not amazing. There are many many trails. We did the Silver Cascade Falls hike. It provided nice views and was relatively easy and short. We then did most of the Mt. Cutler trail. Tihs was longer, but still rather easy. The views were spectacular, even giving us a... More

Took my family up the trail to mount cutler. The trail head is about 1.5 miles from the Starsmore discovery center. There is space for about 15-20 parked cars on the side of the road by the trail head. It is a little over a mile up to the top. The hike isn't too strenuous, although very loose dirt/Rock on...

One of my favorite places for hiking. Trail difficulty ranges from easy to difficult. I especially liked the Cheyenne Creek trail which parallels the water and has many mini waterfalls.

This canyon is ideal for daily hikes or for morning training like jogging or biking or walking. The geology is amazing and it's one of the few places in the world where to see really rare rocks: ignetites, but you need the guidance of an expert! Anyway visiting this canyon is super enjoyable for everyone.

I was in town for the week for work and couldn't wait to do some afternoon hiking. Plus I love waterfalls! I drove through the park to Helen Hunt Falls and was a little underwhelmed. The falls were pretty, but the hike up the stairs was fairly short. BUT after stopping inside the visitor center, I was given a trail... More

This is a must see when you are in Colorado Springs. Within minutes you are in a beautiful canyon full of nature. The Stars more center is a great learning experience for kids. Ask about the climbing wall

Took the family here to stretch our legs after driving Pikes Peak. Great friendly advice at Helen Hunt visitors center. Took the trail to the top of the falls and admired the view down the Canyon to CS. Then drove to the old Gold Camp train bed coming down from Cripple Creek. Walked up that past the Seven Bridges trailhead.... More

We picnic in the rain here. Thankful for the larger trees that made that possible. We had lots of fun looking around here before heading up the mountain to Helen hunt falls and seven bridges. This park has some other stops located inside the bigger park like Helen hunt and seven bridges etc. if your looking for a nice pretty... More
