About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This trail is found in the North Cheyenne Canyon Park, and is a great toddler friendly hike.  It features a series of stairs that follows along the creek to the top of Helen Hunt Falls. The waterfall can be seen from the trailhead and parking lot area, and is near the visitor center.  The seasonal visitor center has educational exhibits, restrooms, and a gift shop. This hike is great during the summertime, but can be busy. There isn’t a lot of shade at the beginning of the hike, but at the end you can hike near water and the shaded area to cool down.  There is an overlook at the top. It is not stroller or wheelchair friendly.  Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed. PC: Krystal Weir
