Fun little hike! Wasn’t expecting the stairs, so keep that in mind, it is a very man developed trail and there are a lot of steps, some are slippery because of gravel. Brought my 2 & 4 YOs and my 12 YO dog, and they loved it, we made it all the way to the top! We had a blast sliding down the “slippery” rocks at the top and enjoying the beautiful views!

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.

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.

Great views, close proximity to information post.

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.

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

Beautiful hike, very easy. Did it with my 63 year old parents who really loved the views. There are stairs and a hand railing for the majority of the hike

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.

I️t gets steep after seven falls trail ends, and one section is very sandy/gravely with some height exposure. Otherwise very beautiful hike, once you make I️t to the Aspens it’s very relaxing and tranquil.

Beautiful trek! Not a fan of coming down the stairs. Next time I’m definitely getting on the zip line!

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.

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.
