I love it here. Beautiful view. Got tough near the end, and the falls were frozen (3-17-18). Very pretty. Gorgeous hiking weather. Also, there is a sign where you see "St. Mary's Falls .2 miles" Turn around and you will see the switchbacks going up. I really think you have more of a hike than .2 miles!

Love this trail. Went with my wife and 4 year old daughter last week and hiked all the way to the Seventh Bridge! We are not in any sort of shape and took frequent breaks along the way. Beautiful views and terrain. Lots of streams and birds. Luckily, there were plenty of locals to keep us on track, as the trail is not marked.

Directions: Go all the way up the mountain, then park in the dirt parking area. Should be plenty of cars parked there. Trail will be dirt with a gate in front of it. Walk the trail about a 1/2 mile, take a right when the trail forks, then continue to follow trail 622. (If you go left at the fork, you will end up at St. Mary’s Falls.) The trail does keep going after the Seventh Bridge (I was told you could climb all the way up to Pikes Peak) but we stopped there and began the hike back to the car.

Great trail and view. Most definitely harder then moderate for us. Took us 4 hours to get up and back at a slow pace.

This was a pretty easy hike! If you go in the winter or early spring, take spikes if you have them. We went two weeks ago and it was still iced over in spots. We did fine without but I’ll take them next time! Easy trail with gorgeous views!

Short, easy trail with awesome views! Wish I would’ve had clamps for the beginning part but it wasn’t necessary. Love this trail!

Hi Danielle. From the parking lot, you go on the path away from the springs. You walk that path as it forms a "u". keep going until you see the abandoned tunnel. after that, youll go a little more and see a trailhead on the right. The sign has St. Mary's falls on it. Have fun!

Loved the hike! Had a hard time figuring out where to go at the end of High Line Drive! The trail isn't markes well at all! right now there is an orange cone and a tarp covering some logs and a fence at the beginning of the climb up to the peak. We went down 2 wrong trails first and had to go back! We hiked this with two 5 year olds and they loved it!

Hi folks, I'm wondering if you can help me out. I'm confused about which dirt road to take. On one end of the parking lot, there are two options--one is called High Road or something, and the other is Lower Gold Camp. I walked a ways on each of these and didn't find the trailhead. I then tried the dirt road on the other end of the parking lot (directly opposite these two roads). I passed the turn for trail 622 on the right, but I had to turn around because it was getting dark. Was I on the right track? The dirt road made a near U-turn around some private homes and then continued upward. If I'd kept going, would I have found the trailhead on the left? Ugh. Thank you in advance for your help.

AMAZING TRAIL! Cut off the high drive walk and head straight for seven falls. Take the my buckhorn trail up and connect to the rest of the trail for the time of your life.

I started the trail heading west. The trail was not marked, however easy to track. It was a great hike up the first few peaks. However to get the real ah-ha moments you need to head about 200 yards off trail. I dropped this trail a star because the last 2 miles of the loop are simply walking a automobile road, not very glamorous. The mile and a half before that road are great mountain biking trails so stay alert on foot!

A nice place to go for a walk.. not a long walk.. but a good walk up the steps and down them.

We took the downhill section of the Chutes after tackling Columbine and a few others. Very nice trail section.

A bit more difficult trail with not much foot traffic. Great mix of scenery and trail conditions. Perfect with our dog!

Great trail!! We would definitely go back. At the top of the trail you get to switchbacks to get to the falls. This part is not marked and there are several offshoots in the area. Be on the lookout for the correct one to get to the falls. Beautiful scenery and nice hike with the dogs.

Beautiful trial along the creek side. The end gets a bit more difficult with rock scrambling but worth it! Trail was pretty iced over but still passable. Very enjoyable with the dogs!

This was a fun and pretty easy trail with numerous views along the way! I would definitely do this trail again. A little bit of snow and ice but with my spikes on my boots, easy to do and no snow toward the top!

However be careful about leaving any valuables in your car. My husband and I came back to the trailhead and a group of hikers had their car broken into and a purse/wallet stolen. It was a late afternoon on a Friday but still light out.

One of the best local hikes in the springs! Good little workout at the end for the final summit push. Excellent views over North Cheyenne Canon.

Beautiful hike although we started out to do Seven Bridges but couldn't find the trailhead. Nice uphill and vistas overlooking CS and Front Range. Waterfall was of course frozen and not much to see so end point was a bit disappointing, but hey, it's winter. Should have expected it. Will definitely return in the summer!

No signage to this trail. Totally missed where it started and went up to St. Mary's falls instead. Still a great hike but man, why don't these parks make it clear where the trail heads are??

Great trail! Love this app, it helped to keep us on the correct trail, following the creek. April, I think you guys went left over the creek, we stayed on the trail to the right of the creek and made it to the falls! 6.8 miles!!

Such a fun hike, and my dog loves it as much as I do. The creek and bridges make it more interesting. It is beautiful and not too difficult.

lovely trail, not too difficult. There was some snow and ice when I hiked it; trekking poles helped me balance on the icy bits but were not necessary, as my husband did fine without any. Great views at the top, I definitely recommend it.

Nice hike. Mount Cutler was easy so we came back to try Mount Muscoco. We had some snow recently so it made for a challenging climb and slide coming down. Breathtaking view from the top. Near the top became harder and keep an eye on not wandering off the trail.

I love that this is near water. It was peaceful and close by!

Great trail! When you get to the peak of the mountain and still have strength, you’ve got the trail up to Mount Muscoco if you turn left at the fork instead of right. There is also a cave-like opening about half way up the trail to Cutler, it only goes about 4 feet in but it’s still a good place to take a photo.

there's a lookout with a rock wall where they have park benches to enjoy the view. During the winter months you can see people ice climbing up the falls.

great trail for beginners or families. branches off into other trails after the bridges.

I was confused about whether the trail itself was 6 miles or whether it was 6 miles round trip from the parking lot (you walk for quite a ways on a dirt road before getting to the actual trail). Now, having done the hike, I can confirm that it's the latter. Hope this helps anyone else who is wondering!

Hiked on 12/20. Amazing hike up North Cheyenne Canon with a few friends and dogs. Moderate hike. The numerous stream crossings were really cool. Skirted up the side of Keneo after the last bridge for a fantastic view out over the canyon. Thought about continuing up Mt. Keneo proper, but the altitude was starting to get to this Jersey boy

Great downhill section. The last 1/3rd of the loop is shut down, but there’s an alternate route that is a little longer.
