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.

Not the most spectacular falls by any means, but an average hike with some elevation gain. Heavy traffic with familes and dogs on a narrow trail most of the way. If you're up for the challenge and more miles I highly suggest continuing up to Mt. Rosa for some beautiful views.

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.

Wide trail, packed with visitors.

Fun hike

It was an awesome trail with amazing views. At some points there are numerous trails intersecting each other but the GPS feature on the app keeps you heading in the right direction.

This is one of my favorite trails yet! You get beautiful views of the mountains, the city, and the forest itself. The reservoirs are really nice and there are a couple of places that have bathrooms if needed. The trail is a bit longer than listed because part of it is blocked off so you have to take an extra loop. It was a total of 5.51 miles and an elevation gain of 1,095 feet!

Me and my pup's first CO trail after driving up from TX the day before. The trail itself was not difficult, but we definitely felt the elevation! Ended up going past where the trail actually ended up to the top for some great views. The trail is pretty and well maintained, wonderful morning hike.

You need a 4x4 , wrangler, SUV or truck to get to this trailhead. I am sure this is a 5-Star hike but we had to turn around since we were driving a hybrid rental car. The trail description does not mention this very important fact (about getting to the trailhead on a very rutted, narrow and rocky road). Travel safe!

Great hike and you can keep going past the falls if you want a little more hiking. Look for the 622 marker to find the entrance to the trail and go early. The other reviews about being busy are accurate.

This hike is labeled moderate but it’s on the easier side of moderate. You walk along the stream on the whole walk and it’s relatively shaded. No signs labeled Seven Bridges, it’s actually Trail 622. At the Helen Hunt visitor center there are several outhouses but bring your own toilet paper. Earlier the better for parking.

Great hike & even better if you keep going past the seventh bridge to the upper views.

One of the best trails. Great time

Falls are nice once you get there. The length of the hike is a bit much for a half-day outing. The initial portion on the forest road is exposed and hot, pretty forgettable. The trail itself is mostly covered, but a pretty consistent, significant uphill grade.

Nice, relatively easy hike. Good for an afternoon family hike. Initial portion, on forest road, isn't too appealing, but actual trail is nice. Trailhead isn't obvious; look for it at bend in the road.

Challenging but beautiful!

Really enjoyed this hike. Starts out easy on a old road with gradual gain. Then comes to a more typical much narrower trail through the trees with a more intense elevation gain. Views from the top were great. Be prepared to share the trail with mountain bikers and dirt bikes

Great trail to do with our pup. Trail was easy to follow and bridges are all numbered. You get a lot of shade which was great on a sunny/hot day. Parking was a bit of a challenge but likely would’ve been better had we gotten there earlier.

Definitely a great trail although not my personal favorite. Thankfully I got there early and parking wasn’t an issue but by the time I came back down there were way too many people for my liking. I expected this however I’ve been wanting to see what the trail is all about. It’s wooded the whole way besides Gold Camp Road so not too many views but the waterfall throughout is awesome.

Great hike with a little ice around the falls today.

It was not moderate; it was difficult. We went to check out the seven bridges trail... and ended on this trail. It was ok. The water was low but ok.

It was kind of busy with bikes and through out the first 2.5-3 miles. I wouldn’t mind the bikes except there were many corners and the path was only wide enough for one of us. I had to dodge some bikers as they came down hill in some sketchy spots. After that I only saw a couple and this was on a Friday afternoon. I wasn’t too happy with the footing. There was a ton of loose gravel on steep inclines. It did have some epic views and a 2 cool tunnels towards the end. It does end on the last 3 miles on a flat smooth surface. I wasn’t a fan of that, I’m a ginger we need constant shade when we’re out in the wild

This was an awesome hike! Make sure you get there early! Parking gets tricky since this is a popular one! Definitely a moderate hike. We did it with our 10 and 7 year olds. They loved the waterfalls and creeks. Will DEF do again!

Worth checking out! Hike starts pretty slow/uneventful up an old road, however beautiful views of surrounding mountains/valleys, trail picks up before the actual start of the trail, watch out for signs, if you aren’t experienced as the trail isn’t all that well marked. The last .2 mile is the steepest but well worth it! Falls were slow as others have mentioned but still gorgeous and a great place to stop for lunch or to just recharge for the decent. Garmin tracked the trail around 6.8ish miles.

Had a lot of fun with our dog (kept her on leash). Went past the 7th bridge up a bit more towards Jones park but didn’t quite make it. Will definitely come again.

Trail was somewhat difficult to follow - not many signs to let you know if you were on the right track after trail forks. Lots of shade. Last portion was fairly steep but the views were worth it. Be careful as most hikers we encountered did not leash their dogs on this trail.

Soooooo, we didn’t make it to the trail because there was no mention of how horrible the road to the trailhead was. Wouldn’t recommend driving a small car, sedan or sports car because the road is full of potholes, rocks, uneven bumps and did I mention huge rocks sticking out of the road. So will review again when we returned with a proper vehicle.

It was so fun! We went too late and didn’t make it to the waterfall, we didn’t want to get stuck in the dark! We will be going back but earlier next time.

Even though the flow of the falls was a bit low, it was still beautiful and the overall view of Colorado Springs and surrounding mountains was absolutely breathtaking at the end of trail. I agree with some of the other posts that the trail is not well marked, however. We had to back track to the last stretch when we missed the ascent to the left that was only marked off by a large branch and some rocks. Hikers from out of town may just see that as a fun natural obstacle, as I did. Even with that though, this was still our favorite hike; more awe inspiring than Seven Bridges Trail.
