Yes, Seven Falls is still closed but Helen Hunt is open beautiful. The ranger says it's the best it's been in years due to previous drought. The hike up to the scenic overview from the Hunt falls parking lot is only 1/3 of a mile but straight up. Not for the mobility impaired. But it's totally worth it if you can make it. Great running streams at the top to splash your face with mountain cold water. Enjoy!

We visited on the 4th of July (Park was packed) so besides the crowds it was a great experience! I imagine on a non holiday it's more serene. Crowds or no crowds this is a must stop if your in the area. There is no cost to enter the park or for Helen Hunt Falls.

Stop by the visitor center at the entrance of the park and grab a trail map. Lots of great trails. The center has a couple of kids activities in the basement.

We stopped at Helen Hunt Falls (appx 3.5 miles into the park) . The hike to the second falls is steep but well maintained. The views were breath taking! There is also a little visitor center by the falls with drinks to buy and a few porta potties. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

To complete the trip we passed the falls and took a right at the last parking lot. There is a 6.5 mile gravel road back down the mountain that goes through two tunnels. The road is suitable for any car (we took our minivan) and is well grated as long as you are comfortable with gravel roads and no railings. The drive is amazing!

Aside from its free, the view is breathtaking when you hike through the mountains. You can see the seven falls from a distance.

Compared to ll the roads I drove in Colorado, Aspen, Glenfield Springs, Vail, this road tops the lot. The scenery is amazing, lots of free parking and loads of hikes, just drive up stop off and go in the hills, best kept secret.
