Great place to hike up and explore the area for a day. I'm disabled so I cannot climb the steps but the beauty was worth the visit and I went as far as I could go and had a really nice time. It's a great...More

Be prepared to hike an elevation or just come to see the water fall either way you will not be disappointed. It is free but if you are coming on a warm day parking may be difficult so be prepared to walk.

I am blessed to live only about 30 minutes from here, but this hike is exceptional!! If you go early you can avoid some of the crowds. It’s so peaceful as you get closer to the top and the water is singing.

The whole park - North Cheyenne Canyon Park - is well maintained and free to visit. Helen Hunt Falls is an acceptable substitution to Seven Falls if you are budget conscious.

More of a city park than anything. Its nice, don't get me wrong, we've seen better falls. Some of the trails in the area were nice, but quite a few people.

Not the largest falls around but quiet and peaceful setting. The drive to the falls is well worth the trip itself and lots of hiking trails in the canyon on your way up. Short hike up the hill to yet another small falls and great...More

I'm not knocking it, but there isn't a lot to see here. If you go, be sure to stop at the nature center a few miles downstream first, and then enjoy the twisty drive up to the falls. Kids will like it more than adults,...More

We were going to go to 7 falls and went here instead, and boy am I glad we did. The drive to this place was fantastic, the views going up the mountain and through the mountain were amazing. There was 2 caves cut through the...More

If you are into out of the way scenic activities this is a good place you can come in on the gravel gold camp road or the less adventurous paved road

Hi Vanessa - I have not been to Seven Falls, but know that it can get pricey for "what you get". Helen Hunt Falls is only about a mile or so for there and back. It may feel a little longer because it can be steep in some... More
