Short hike in Cheyenne Canyon to some interesting falls. Take the trail that leads up above Helen Hunt Falls. Continue up the hillside on this trail as it does a couple of switchbacks. Cross a small bridge near the end and head out to the overlook surrounded by a rock wall. These falls are beautiful when flowing strong, but dry up quickly to a trickle.

Short, family hike. Lots of kiddos on this trail. Crowded. Stairs and resting spots make it even easier for the little hikers. Pretty views.

This hike was a lot of fun. The stairs made it easy to climb and benches along the way are great for enjoying the view or resting.

Easy climb with lots of people around. Scrambling on the rocks above the falls added more challenge and less people.

Great invigorating climbing hike. Steps built into mountain, steep, places to rest, great waterfall views, good for birding, parking at base can be a little tricky on busy days but if you are patient one will open within a few minutes usually.

Short but steep (still kid friendly though) and pretty amazing views! Can't beat getting to see 2 waterfalls on such a short hike either.

We were there in July of 2012 and there really wasn't much to the falls. It's an okay hike with some average views. Good for kids, but not anything I'd recommend to people.

Short hike but perfect for toddlers. We have a three year old and he made it all the way up and ran down with his daddy. Nice views too!

Very short hike, Helen Hunt falls is definitely a popular location so be prepared in warm weather to have lots of visitors in the area. The hike to the Silver Cascade Falls was short and a little disappointing since the water fall didn't have much water running down it.
