Very beautiful scenery. All the going up was well worth the amazing and breathtaking views

Loved this trail. Me, two kids and a dog took us about 4 hours with a break at the top. Note: the cover photo for this looks like Helen Hunt Falls, NOT St. Mary's
We will definitely do this trail again.

Beautiful and peaceful! A Steller’s Jay flew branch to branch just ahead of me on a significant portion of my return hike.

Great hike with kids.

A little more traffic than I originally expected on this trail but it was beautiful and the hike wasn’t too strenuous

Too much loose gravel in some parts for my liking, but the views were great and the foot traffic light (didn't encounter any bicycles). It's 3 miles from the middle trailhead to the end at the upper trailhead. I ended up taking the road back down, which worked on a weekday but which I would not recommend on the weekend when the park is busier.

It’s a good run uphill. Coming down was a blast!

Great hike. Watch out for really inconsiderate dirt bike riders. Mountain bikers were all really friendly/considerate.

Actually there are two dirty roads with metal gates, so you should start the plain one, not the one that goes up. I did wrong and ended up with 5.5 miles but it worth the efforts since the unplanned part of the trail was empty and picturesque with great views. Still confusing signage, some native person helped us tremendously to end up with this 622 trail.

Nice hike to take family on. Moderate hike- uphill most of the way. Parking lot was full when I first arrived, so had to wait a bit till someone left.

Awesome trail and great scenery

Trail was in good shape. Pretty steep incline. 3.1 miles up to the falls. The falls were only frozen at the very top.

Perfect weather, beautiful hike, a bit more challenging than Seven Bridges. Lots of dogs - rarely on leash but generally well behaved, wish more people picked up after them though. Place to sit & enjoy the Falls at the top. Not a traditional waterfall - look at pics so you aren’t disappointed!

I forgot how much I disliked this hike until we did it again today (May 5). Starting at the Starsmore Discovery Center the first mile is easy and goes through a slightly wooded area. You cross the road at the mid Columbine Trail and from that point the trail climbs relentlessly for close to two miles, over dense, loose gravel, with very little cover from the sun and lots of switchbacks. Not fun! For us it was 3.67 miles from the trail head to the parking lot at Helen Hunt Falls. We took the road back. 6.53 total.

Great trail. Moderate to difficult. Up all the way to the 7th bridge and down all the way back. Can be difficult to find so read the reviews and it tells you how to get there. Go to the top parking lot and at the far end is a dirt road with a metal gate across. Go through that and about .7 miles up on the right will be a curve that the actual trail starts. Look for a sign hat says 622. When you get to a sign on he right that says North Cheyenne creek (brown metal sign with the words punches out) the. You are about 50 feet from the trailhead

Trail was pretty nice. The first part of the trail about a mile or so is pretty easy. It’s wide open and you’ll see a lot of hikers both casual hardcore and you’ll also see a bunch of kids with Bluetooth speakers looking to find a shady place to hang out. But as you continue up the trail the people start to vanish and it’s an upward hike to the falls. If you want after the falls there’s a break away path to be summit of mount rosa 11k feet of elevation. This trail also has a lot of other intertwining trails. I’d recommend this for those who want to get their feet wet in Colorado hiking.

3/10. It was a good hike. Very steady uphill on the way up to the falls. Will have you breathing a little heavier. Falls were frozen but still pretty. Will definitely come back in summer.

After completing the Seven Bridges trail I started on this one. Though the trail itself didn't really gives much views as it was more a hike alongside a river/creek (which is nice of course). Though the trail definitely splits off at points and got me turned around a few times. Overall it was an uphill battle which was pretty rough since I just did a hike beforehand, when I got closer to the top I definitely needed a few more breaks. Especially once you hit the 0.2 mile sign and the switchbacks start, I'm pretty sure its about 0.5, maybe providing you with a false sense of hope you're almost done lol. The falls itself were quite nice, though parts of it were still frozen the main waterfall cliff was nice, and turning around you had a spectacular view of the valley below (:

Great hike all the way through, started off with plentiful parking in the top parking lot. Went through the gravel/dirt road to the first metal sign which I passed...then looked up to my right at a different trail and saw another metal sign...then turned completely around and saw the #622 sign. Walked closed to the metal sign and there it was Seven Bridges hike! So yeah just keep a lookout for those metal signs and the #622 and make a right upwards. Its all uphill from there and being a non-native to CO it wasn't too bad but once I passed the 7th bridge and started upwards to Jones Park...hoooo I definitely needed to take a couple of breaks. So I'm not sure whether or not I reached Jones Park - but I'm assuming it was that one side (where the trail is on) that has a vast opening where it was ALL loose gravel and giant rock formations while the other side is a complete full grown forest (or in today's case completely covered in snow). So one side was like a hot desert while the other was a snow covered forest - pretty cool. I only went up maybe 0.5 miles away from that point and it just kept going up, so yeah I called it quits and went back down to start the St. Mary's Falls Trail.

had a great time with my lady on the trail definitely will go back!

Lovely hike along the creek. The parking lot is up the mountain after Helen Hunt Falls. Hike through the gate then follow that dirt road until you see a little brown 622 marker on the right. Take that for Seven Bridges. if you keep going up on the main dirt road you'll end up at St.Mary's Falls

Pretty easy hike along a creek most of the way. Only saw one other person the whole way.

Great views but definitely an unmarked trail. I just happened to stumble across it. You have to come up the road from the parking load to hit the trailhead

Amazing trail. Perfect for Runners.

I have a question, y'all. I've been day hiking intensely for a while, but my navigation skills aren't exactly stellar. I really want to see Jones Park and I've been looking for it for a while. Looking at my pocket guide map, I thought the best way to do that would be to catch 7 bridges and then turn west on 667 (at the junction of 622a and 667). Each time I've tried, I do something like this: reach the end of trail 622 (which starts as 7 bridges), continue through the impressive stand of aspen trees uphill and to the north (ie to the right if you're coming up the trail). I'm able to reach the place where 666 used to intersect 667 (before that section of 666 was closed for trout preservation). I then go west on 667. Yesterday I got pretty far on 667 before I had to call it a day because it was getting late. Does anyone have any advice for me? What I've seen is beautiful, but I've become very intent on finding the ~mysterious~ Jones park. Would I have better luck just taking 667 from High drive until I come to Jones Park? Any help is appreciated!
