The Discovery Center was nice as it told about the falls, the area, and other information. The guide was polite and answered all our questions. They have a place... More

Great hikes here, I got totally turned around & didn't find the trail I went to do but liked the one I did. Very busy, parking can be a pain or you might have to wait but it's well worth it!

We drove through this park and stopped at both Helen Hunt Falls and Seven Bridges trails. This is such a beautiful area. Could have spent a lot more time here and made many more stops. A lot to do for everyone. Great photo ops and best of all--no charge for anything! If you like hiking and views--this is a great... More

Another hidden gem in Colorado Springs is the North Cheyenne Canon Park. Filled with waterfalls and cascades with spectacular views overlooking Colorado Springs, it is another in many free attractions in the area. The hiking can be a bit challenging, especially with young children, however, it is more than worth the view.

North Cheyenne Canon Park is a must-see when visiting Colorado Springs. Visit Helen Hunt Falls and take a short hike with some great views, or take one of the other numerous hikes in the Canon that will not disappoint you. I visit North Cheyenne Canon on a regular basis.

This is a great park for anyone that wants to get in some nature time without spending any money. There are many trails that end with some beautifull views. There is also a small waterfall to stop at on the drive up. It is small, but a nice place to spend a few minutes.

We had heard so much about this park so we just had to see it for ourselves. We wanted to get to the falls and everything we read about them seemed great. When we got to the falls we were a little disappointed because it wasn't what we expected. A little small. But anyway they were enjoyable. Able to walk... More

We loved it . More than we expected. 10 times better than Pikes Peak. No cost to hike or site see. This was my man's first to Colorado and first time seeing and being in mountains.

a good long drive and we went on some trails, we were driving a suburban so not all the park roads were advisable, next time we will drive a smaller 4 wheel drive
