North Cheyenne Canon Park, Colorado Springs Reviews

  • Love this place! We moved to Colorado Springs and have enjoyed hiking in the canon and visiting plenty. The most popular stop is Helen Hunt Falls, and no it's not named after the famed Twister actress Helen Hunt. Parking can be difficult on weekends and when the weather is especially pretty! At the top of the road and past Helen Hunt Falls is Gold Camp Parking Lot. There's good trails off of here as well. It's a beautiful place and free to visit, just drive slow on the road and watch for pedestrians and bikers on the road.

  • Lots of great trails. Beautiful waterfalls. St. Mary's Waterfall is worth the hike. Mt. Muscoco is fantastic. If the sun is out it is busy. Parking can be hard to find.

  • Awesome trails all throughout the canyon for beginners and seasoned hikers. Beautiful views, typically not overcrowded, and great for bringing dogs along! But please pick up after them!

  • This city-owned park is a great way to experience Colorado, whether you have just an hour or all weekend. If you have just an hour, drive up the curvy, paved road to Helen Hunt Falls where you can get out and enjoy the views. If you are a hiker, trail runner or mountain biker, this park has incredible trails (some challenging!) and views you can explore all day. An easy hike is to go all the way to the top of the paved road and park in the dirt lot and then walk up the historic Gold Camp Road, which has incredible views and is safe for kids to explore. More experienced visitors can also try High Drive, Buckhorn trail, Columbine trail, or the shorter, easier Cutler trail. Many trails connect to the adjacent National Forest.

  • Great hike, beautiful veiws. Great for familys.
