My wife and I hiked the 7 Bridges trail a few days ago. It was stunning fall day without a cloud in the sky. We went later in the afternoon around 3pm. Shadows were starting to fall in the canyon by then. I am going to stress a few observations. 1. The parking is very crowded and somewhat disorganized. 2. The trail starts at an elevation of around 7500ft and tops out at near 8500 ft. 3. It is roughly over half a mile just to get to the trailhead. There is literally just a post in the ground with 622 marked on it. It is on the right side to the left of a large pine tree with roots growing over a pile of rocks. 4. There are at least 2 places where the trail is poorly marked and one could easily go off in the wrong direction. 5. This is NOT a hike for small children or for ppl unprepared to hike a long distance uphill with several points which are very steep. If you have bad knees, know you have to go back down which is worse on the knees than going up. There numerous steps and loose rock and gravel. 6. I cant stress the small children part enough. We encountered many misguided families that ended up carrying their kids because it became too strenuous for them. 7. We saw several dogs on the trail. With the steepness of this trail, I'm not sure how fair it was to some of these dogs. One family had a Great Dane! I guess as owners you know your dog better than anyone. Just know its steep, narrow, rocky and with loose ground in many places. My point is, be informed about what you are getting into. Yes, it's a beautiful hike. However, be prepared or you or a family member can get hurt, lost, or dehydrated.

It was uncrowded and very relaxing when we went on a Monday morning. Weekends can be unpleasantly crowded.

Get there early, parking is kinda sparce. I reccomend going to Helen Hunt Falls first, then take the drive up the hill to the Seven Bridges Trail. You'll start on a flat gravel road with some great views of the valley. The trip up from Bridge to bridge has a lot of cool little waterfalls. I reccommend climbing down a few trails to get better views. If you're like me and like to take pictures it will take a good minute to get to the #7 bridge. They way back down will go pretty quick. At the top there's another trail that is marked. I didnt do it, but heard there is some good views of the valley from there. Lots of families with kids on this trail and people with pets. Enjoy your hike.

This is a great hiking trail!! The bridges are neat to see and they have numbers on them - except the first one, but I feel like we may have missed it. The views were beautiful, especially more towards the top! Be prepared, you are going up most of the way! It's not too difficult though. Once you get to the end, if you keep going on trail 622 (I think is what it was, you'll see signs) you get some STUNNING views of the valley. The aspen trees were GORGEOUS! I definitely recommend this hike! We stopped at the seventh bridge and had some snacks. The creek is shimmering and crisp! There were not many people here when we first got there, but it filled up quickly. The road leading up is very winding and the parking lot is gravel. If you have a vehicle that can handle off roading, there is a dirt mountain road you can take when leaving. Helen hunt falls is also right there and short!

Pros - great hike with pavement or dirt trail, lots of stop points, great views, cute shops, neat cave to elevator if can’t or don’t want to do the stairs to the lookouts, shade available with trees if need a break, great picture backdrops Cons - waterfall was barely flowing apparently peak season is end of April thru May. A little pricey for just a walking/hike trail without the water flowing. You have to park off site & ride a shuttle to the entrance which is about a 10 min ride. Yes you can take a stroller, they do allow dogs on leash, water is available for purchase about 1/2 way & at the lookout area Overall we would go again in peak season!
