Located within the Cheyenne Creek in the North Cheyenne Canon Park, these falls are named after United States poet, writer and activist Maria Hunt Jackson who strived for the improvement of Native Americans.
The falls delightfully welcome you as you enter the North Cheyenne Creek and are also the final point of the Columbine trail which begins at the Starsmore Discovery Centre.
Admire the beauty of the thundering falls, hike a couple of kilometres and you can reach the majestic Silver Cascade falls from here.

Helen Hunt Falls Reviews & Ratings
Limited parking. Crazy people driving 35+ on the road to the falls. Lower falls great upper falls is a bit of a hike for a 57 year old not acclimated to this higher elevation (I'm from sea level) but well worth the trip to the top
Absolutely gorgeous drive up to the falls. The walk from the parking lot, over the stone bridge and through the forest was amazing. A bit further up the road is a fantastic stop for hiking and vantage point.
Nice little scenic falls with driving access. Nice hiking trail to take you up beyond the falls
Fun, brief walk/hike. Pretty view. Nice parking lot. Lots of stairs...so beware of that. However, you can drive straight to the falls and skip the hike to go above the falls and see the view. Pretty drive to get there.
This is my favorite park Plenty of trails, great views. Humming birds can be spotted best part it is free.
