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

Easy hike with a lot of stairs. Good for kids, but you may need to carry them some if they’re young. Great views from multiple points along the hike.

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!

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.

It was a very pretty and short hike. Lots of places to take pretty photos

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

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!

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.

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

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.

lots of stairs but great views of the falls. Easy trail for families

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

Make sure to park along perimeter of parking lot and not in center aisle or risk getting boxed in like we did today. This is beautiful hike and won’t stop hiking here because of the inconsiderate but won’t go on weekend when parking gets crazy.

Nice moderate trail. The view at the end is much better in the summer time I’m sure (the waterfall was frozen solid). Looking forward to doing it again!

I’m looking forward to going back in the summertime. There was a moderate amount of snow on the trail, and some spots were very icy. Definitely needed the shoe spikes. The seven bridges portion was fairly easy— it got significantly more difficult after the seventh bridge. The trail was much steeper and some portions were loose gravel. Had a great time regardless!

Moderately difficult trail. Great for working on getting active and in shape. Great views along the way. Most people I passed were friendly. But a few peeps had their unruly dogs off leash, and some pet owners didn’t clean up after their pets. Tons of piles of dog crap near the parking area, making it smell terrible.

Super short hike! It’s worth it though to do it. It can be pretty busy on a nice day so make sure to go early. There’s also other trails right near by

A good warm-up for more experienced hikers, or a good first hike for beginners. During warmer months, and especially weekends, the lower portion (Helen Hunt falls) can get fairly crowded.

Pretty easy hike as you are mostly in the shade. We messed up and turned around right after the 7th bridge... will go back to see that final view! Most of the dogs we saw were off leash.. and lots of dog poop not picked up. Pretty disappointing to see this.. come on people!

Super easy hike. Lots of stairs, we came in January & the water fall was frozen. Looks like this hike would be better for the summer!
