“This is a great Free Attraction and its Beautiful”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Make sure you have sunscreen and water and be prepared for some wonderful views and if your not from Colorado or even if you are the altitude is tough - so take it slow but be prepared for some fantastic sights and the Falls are awesome and best of all it's Free -

“Easy side trip from Colorado Springs”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

A quick drive from Colorado Springs will get you to Helen Hunt falls, which really shines in the early spring during the snow melt. Late summer brings a mere trickle, but still worth a visit to get some shade and see some water during the typically dry Colorado summers. Lots of places to picnic and hike. Good for the entire family

“Great free adventure!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

This area is so beautiful. It's even more wonderful because it is free. The waterfalls are very nice and the little trails around it too are nice for a hike.

“Good attraction for an extended stay or second visit”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you have limited time, as we did on our first trip to COS, we hit Seven Falls. Do not forgo that to see Helen Hunt Falls. It is still beautiful and a beautiful drive there, but its much less grand. Still great photo opps, but better for a second visit or if you have already seen Seven Falls. Nice hike up works off lots of calories, bring your water bottle and camera.

“Another great free attraction in CO Springs”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had a great hike up the falls. You can see the city from the lookout at the top. Beautiful. I did slip on the way down but didn't get hurt. The incline wasn't so bad but the steps had pebbles on so going down was more difficult. Dog friendly and the employees were there to answer any questions about the area. There was a humming bird in the feeder which was a nice bonus.
