Very nice area, steep cliffs, beautiful stream. Drive up until you get to the visitor center. Then walk to the top past several water falls. The view at the top is worth it. We have an 11 and 13 yr girls and they did great and werr excited about the scenery.

Oh my gosh. We loved this place!!! First of all it's free! The drive is so easy. Lots of places to pull over and take in the view, take lots of pictures, have a picnic, go hiking on a trail, or put your feet in a cold stream! No scary cliffs to avoid like going up pikes peak. It wasn't... More

Nice hike with 1100 foot elevation change. Cross over running creek seven times during this two mile hike (1 way). Not real challenging but great views and small falls add to the beauty.

After reading reviews we came here rather than Seven Falls and I'm so glad we did! The road into the park winds through and there was a lot to see! We went later in the afternoon so we were able to park right by the Helen Hunt Falls (fantastic) and hike up from there. The trail is very near the... More

This is a great place to get out of your car and enjoy the great doors.. We hike many of the trails in the park. They all have great views. We also have a few special picnic areas. I know you find your own. Get out and explore.

For the Colorado Springs area, this was one of the more enjoyable hikes for me. I would call it a low moderate hike (easy if I would lose 25 pounds like I need to). Not overly green and colorful, but the creek coming down from the higher elevation made it enjoyable. We did not take the full route. We started... More

Seniors visiting from UK. A beautiful drive up to the Helen Hunt Falls - others were hiking (I wasn't well that day and couldn't manage it) but we went for a little walk part way up the falls. Lovely wildlife and flowers. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

My kids and I attempted to enter the park, but upon getting there, one of the streets was closed due to construction, with no detour signs posted. This was frustrating because I had checked online before heading out. After driving around a bit, we did find a parking lot and sign for one part of the park, closest to the... More

This park provides a gateway to a network of hiking trails through canyons, forest and mountains. Beautiful waterfalls and the sounds of fast-moving water along Cheyenne Creek create a natural oasis on the west side of Colorado Springs. Along with Bear Creek and Red Rocks, the parks of Colorado Springs offer an abundance of opportunity for outdoor adventures. The Columbine... More

This is our go to spot for hiking! It is my absolute favorite. Many different trails for different skill levels. A drive down Gold Camp Road is the perfect way to end a day of hiking! Beautiful views and a couple of tunnels. The road is pretty scary though, so if you are scared of heights, find someone else to... More
