A short hike to some great views, within '''[http://www.springsgov.com/Page.asp?NavID=3038 North Cheyenne Cañon City Park]'''.
Holy crow did we get steered wrong! The usual road to this lovely parking lot has a bridge OUT. So Google maps brings you up to Bear Creek area on 3-4 miles of unpaved and narrow winding roads and tight tunnels. And finally you reach a lot where trailheads are, but not a real or safe trail to the falls
Be warned 😳
Located in North Cheyenne Cañon Park, Helen Hunt Falls are named for author Helen Hunt Jackson and are popular with hikers. It’s a great activity for families, as it’s a relatively easy climb up the side of the falls with a great reward of awesome views.
To access the falls, you’ll need to drive about 2.5 miles into the park on North Cheyenne Canyon Park and look for a sign indicating waterfall parking. At a large trailhead, hikers can head to the base of the falls or continue to the top, which is just a short hike and which offers fantastic canyon vistas.
We think this is one of the best waterfalls to visit in Colorado Springs!
You can drive all the way upto the lot to park by this falls which we loved. We aren't really a big hiking family. 😆 The drive is pretty long up a winding, curvy road on a mountain. Don't take an RV or trailer up this climb! There's no shoulder and no center line. The falls was a quick little walk. Very pretty. 😊
Road was closed to cars, walked the mile pulling a wagon with three kids, from visitor center to the address listed. Address lead to parking where a sign stated 2 miles to Helen Hunt Falls. Enjoyed the views, but going the additional two miles to the falls was unrealistic for us.
