Loved it!!

Some pretty underwhelming bridges. I will say the middle of Cheyene Canon was very nice though. It was super windy, very quiet and peaceful, may as well just hang out around the center and views from the side and skip the bridges.

beautiful place to be! the trail is beautiful with plenty of things to see. BE AWARE: there are wildfire midigators working around the trail and in the forest. they are there M-F from 8 am to about 3:30 pm they do a good job keeping everyone in mind but just be aware if you are sondering they could probably use a heads up! currently they are over by HP.

Nice trail!

Great trail and very easy to hike

A fun run and nice variety of trails for mountain biking/trail running of different skill levels.

very nice trail run

nice and easy, you can bring the dog. Beautiful, easy.

This is a beautiful hike. The trailhead is about a mile from the parking lot on the right and is marked as 622. Above the last bridge, there’s a lot of loose gravel/rocks that can get a bit sketchy at times. The trail shifts to 622A, which will take you to the Apens. After the Aspens, you will come to a trail junction. To the far right you will see an unmarked trail that will take you to the top of Keneo. This hike is all up, but definitely worth it. Took us about 2 hours up and about and 1:15 to get down. We took lots of picture.

Beautiful view of the Broadmoors 7 falls and zip lining course

Great payoff for the short hike!

Beautiful trail. Very scenic with the running water, bridges and foliage. The only downside was the walk from the parking lot to the trailhead. It was littered with dog waste so you had to be careful where you walked. Pet owners need to pick up after their pets.

beautiful short hike. I went early to get parking and was happy that the trail was fairly empty. there are a few steep drop off on the trail but totally navigable. views at the top are great.

Trail is maintained very well, very calming hike next to the flowing stream. The entire trail is uphill, however the top is worth reaching for the view of the valley.

Well marked and great views. Great trail to see some wildlife if the right time of year.

Just hiked it today. Very pretty trail with a good size aspen grove at the end. The leaves will be gone soon. Some of the trees are already bare. Hurry if you want to see them. The trail is definitely moderate with one pretty sketchy spot if you continue past the last bridge. You won’t like that part if you’re not too crazy about heights. Lots of slippery loose gravel. It’s more like 5.8 miles there and back if you keep going to get to the aspens.

Hiked this trail today. Trail maintenance group were working on the trail which is very well maintained. As Ashley Reed pointed out last week this trail us NOT marked as Seven Bridges Trail, but as Trail 622. Trailhead is about a mile up Gold Camp Road from the final parking lot above Helen Hunt Falls. We only hiked up to Bridge #7, but others coming down from the top of the trail said the aspens were peak. North Cheyenne Creek runs all along the trail with several small falls. Beautiful trail, great day!

Very good hike! Challenging but very rewarding. We went over labor day weekend so it was busy. Uphill the whole way made for a great workout. Would recommend!

We came here with our dog in the beginning of September. The waterfall was mostly dried up at the top but it has nice views still. Easy and short hike, loose dirt in some areas which makes it a bit slippery in some areas. There is a creek at the bottom near the parking lot which provides some shade. The drive to here has narrow and winding roads up the mountain but we drove about 15-20 mph and no issues.

Helen Hunt Falls is directly off of the parking lot, so there's very little walking to do once you've arrived in order to see the waterfall. Parking is very limited. There is a staircase that will take you up and over the falls and leads to some different trails.

Great uphill hike. Used it for training (backpacking) for my dog and I. Uphill the entire way out, so downhill back. Rewarded w/ a beautiful aspen meadow at the top. Lots of creek access for water and ambiance. Really enjoyed it. 5.8 miles out and back.

A mostly easy climb, occasional sheer cliff-face with some washout. Beautiful views of Colorado springs, Seven falls and the surrounding mountains. Highly recommend an early hike for low temps and striking photography light.

This is one of my favorite hikes yet. You get beautiful views of the city and mountains. There is a cute area at the top that would be great for a picnic. There are a few narrow areas so just be careful with the kiddos.

I did this hike on the way to Kineo Mountain. Pretty easy hike with a lot of familes with small children and dogs. I highly suggest continuing on past the 7th bridge for a more secluded hike and more of a challenge as most people turn around. My dog of course loved all the water to play in and there are some great hammock and lunch spots in the trees along the river.

Nice trial, great views of water. When you get to the parking lot take the entrance on the left with a small gate and walk down till you see 622 on the right and go to the right.

Great trail in my opinion. It’s not smooth or well marked but if you pay attention, the trail is easy to follow. This trail definitely gets your heart rate up. Beautiful views. My GPS recorded 3.8 miles.

Short, easy, family-oriented hike. We found it by accident while driving on Gold Camp road. Will go back to do some of the other longer trails.

Short little hike. Quick elevation. Steps and gravel trail. Wide and easy to follow. Family friendly. Busy parking because of popularity. Zero water flow during droughts but still pretty.
