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.

My family (including my 2 year old) went on this hike on a Friday morning. We got to the parking lot around 8 and it wasn’t too busy. The walk along the road is about .5 mile, then you turn right at trail 622. It’s not well marked. After the road it is beautiful, shaded, and a little rocky. My son loved going over all the bridges. Great family hike! On our way back (around 10:30) it was pretty busy and the parking lot was full.

Didn’t finish. The trail 667 shown on this map is closed. If you use the map on here as a guide it’ll look like you’re lost. The new 667 will take you to the same end destination but is longer. You also will miss the mine shaft on the new trail. Trailhead map shows the new 667 path. High road was closed. Parked in lot at start of high road and walked a mile up the road to trail head.

This trail is rated “easy” but I would rate it more as “moderate” not for families with little ones or small kids. This trail is awesome For solo hikers or if hiking with other experienced hikers. This trail is a great hike with a couple amazing views along the way! The only reason I gave it 4* instead of 5* is there is traffic noise from the road 90% of the time.

PET OWNERS. Let me start by saying I have a black lab named Griff and we go everywhere together and he has been on dozens of hikes with me. The bio says this trail is pet friendly which it is BUT please learn from my mistake and by shoes or boots for your dog before attempting this hike! The trail is all sharp rock and gravel and tore the pads on Griffins paws up and I had to carry him the last mile.

Nice easy hike for any skill level. Once you get to the trailhead, rest of the trail is pretty much shaded and cool. Few doggy poops and bags were spotted but not enough to ruin my day. There were no bugs, no bathroom and no hiking stick is required.

Very beautiful summit. The trail is definitely moderate, as some scrambling is required at the top but it is manageable without any special equipment. I would recommend this to out of town visitors who want to experience climbing a mountain and I will definitely be back! I would advise average to above average fitness level.

I wish there was more signage to let the hiker know the distance to the falls. That’s my biggest disappointment in this hike.

The trail itself is nice because you’re walking next to the creek for a good portion of the wooded trail.

I suggest hiking boots for ankle stability if that’s an issue for you. Bring snacks and plenty of water.

Kids loved it- twin 6 year old girls and 11 year old boy! Perfect for our fam!

Really beautiful hike along the creek. Was gorgeous after a light snow the night before.
After the 7th bridge we continued up the trail-622-Seven Bridges to Jones Park. We encountered a large adult brown bear at the aspen grove on the trail. He was not aggressive, but interested in us.
We called the Colorado Park and Rec to report and they said he has been hanging around there for about a week and is deemed not aggressive. Make sure you have your bear spray and are aware of what to do in an encounter.
It was worth the adventure because the meadow was so pretty.

Used to love this trail until tourists and inexperienced transplants found it. No one respects this trail or their fellow hikers. Constantly running into people who refuse to leash their dogs or pick up after them, and parents with too many small children to keep track of or keep safe and mindful with cyclists and runners around. Definitely will only return to this trail in the winter when I don’t have to share it with hoards of disrespectful and clueless people.

We enjoy this hike a lot with our son who’s now 5 years old! Beautiful views and relaxing...
