Perfect moderate trail for just enough challenge and beautiful views at the top. The trail is well marked and features minimal obstacles besides the greater difficulty from the steepness near the top. I went on a Saturday morning (summited before 9am) and only saw a few other people on the way up. I had a good 10-15 mins to myself before seeing one runner at the summit but that's it. Highly recommend!

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.

I will fully agree with other reviewers on the crazy hard to find branch-off! I must have stood in that clearing a good 5 mins trying to find the dang thing. It’s unmarked, while the other main trails are all marked. However, it’s difficulty in locating made it nice and unoccupied for the most part part...only ran in to one couple with a pup. The peak has some stunning views of the Springs, with peeks at the Broadmoor and Will Rogers Shrine on the way up and from the top. Fairly easy, some loose gravel here and there, so watch your footing.

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.

Great views! Trail marker is my only con.

Great views at the top!

My tracker placed the hike at 6.7 miles. It's pretty and offers nice mountain views along the way. But way too many people fail to clean up after their dogs. Be careful as you walk this trail.

Great little workout

Definitely a moderate hike, I was a little out of shape when we went but it was a blast. We went at 6:30am and there was plenty of parking and it was a beautiful trail!

Amazing hike. Trust the GPS. I’ve been exploring Cheyenne canyon all summer and mount kineo is a hidden gem. This is the first hike I’ve had to “record” on all trails to stay on track, I recommend pro+a predownloaded map for this hike. I didn’t keep a close enough eye on my phone during the hike and I ended up getting lost once on the ascent and another time when I started to come down from the summits I attempted once before I summited today, but was unable to discern the 622A/667 split during my first attempt.
Today I left an “arrow” made of sticks pointing to the trail on mount kineo..hope it stays there for a little bit! I will provide a photo

Loved this hike. Amazing views.

not super exciting, but it's nice. just out and back, didn't find the waterfall

Guys, DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH SEVEN FALLS! For one, this is free. Also, I had much more fun here.
Keep going up the mountain/road after Helen Hunt falls and you will see a huge parking lot. Go west through the gated dirt road and then after 0.7 mi (according to GPS/Fitbit) you will see the 622 post. My husband and I had fun taking pictures at every bridge we hit. I really enjoyed this hike. From the parking lot to the end of bridge 7 and back, my Fitbit clocked 3.47 mi.
There seems to be paths everywhere, but remember the whole path is along the creek. If you think you’re getting too far away from the creek, you probably are.

This is definitely a great trail. but if you are hiking all the way to the falls it is not moderate. and yes it is longer than stated. beautiful vistas.

Gorgeous

Love the coolness of the trails through the forest. The bridges are pretty well maintained. The views are amazing.

gorgeous views from the top and great for fast running back down. last 1/2 mile up to the summit is a bit challenging but worth the twists and turns!

I completed this hike during the week in mid August 2018. The trail had a few people on it. I had heard that it was often crowded on the weekends. I hiked well past the seventh bridge staying within site of the creek. After I hiked across several steep sandy parts void of trees, I was in the trees again. I could see what I thought was the summit. The weather rolled in, it started to rain so I turned around and headed out. I will return to this trail again.

Simple and straightforward hike. I would say it is very family friendly. Well shaded and cool with a creek flowing through. The area is extremely busy on the weekends.

Beautiful hike and great way to start the day. It was a little more difficult about 1/2 way to the top but worth it. We loved walking along the creek - very peaceful!

Awesome, awesome trail. Scrambling at the top gets a bit hairy but worth it!

So many trails to pick from that all run into the main falls! My eldest son Lars in 2014 at 4 and 5 liked the activity/ information center and Trail maps freely given. Putting our shoes in The waterfalls were his favorite almost as much as lunch on top by the spring! Mt.Cuttler, Burton 3 mile trails, great for families!

The one downfall with this hike is that there is NO way the signs are correct. This hike is way longer than 6-plus miles. You can even see where people wrote the longer distances in pencil on the signs. Besides that, great hike.

Great trail. Well marked. Pretty steep near the top. Dead ends at the falls. Actual falls are average. Give yourself half a day.
