Helen Hunt falls is the highlight of this narrow winding road way up the canyon. A must do in Colorado Springs. Waterfall is better in spring

We took this drive on a hot day during our recent Colorado vacation. It's nice that it's free. The road through the canyon is pretty, and Helen Hunt Falls is a nice little stop. We took the hike from the trailhead that starts at Helen...More

A great place to hike in Colorado Springs. We were tired after a day at the zoo so didn't hike much but next time we go to Colorado Springs we plan on spending more time there.

Lots of hiking paths with various levels of difficulty. Great views from any of the paths with lots of hidden waterfalls and views to discover.

Visited on our way RMNP. Beautiful park and the one hike we got to do was great. Unfortunately we did not get to do more as our window was smashed in apparent smash and grab while on the trail. At least one other car had...More

This is my favorite hiking spot in Colorado Springs. I'll probably hate myself for telling you about it because I prefer to keep it to myself. But too pretty not to share. Even a novice hiker will love the waterfalls, rushing river, shaded trails. It's...More

Yes- the road is navigable with large vehicles. It's windy, but you can still fit two wide quite easily.

You can find maps on the internet and the park is not that big. There is one road through it and trails on either side of the canyon. Hard to get lost.
