This is well populated hiking location with a visitor's center open in the summer months. You can view the falls from the road so it's easy to bring children or those who may have trouble hiking. There is a steep hiking trail wraps along the creek to a look out point above the falls. Helen Hunt Falls named after Helen Hunt Jackson, author and social activist in the late 19th century marks the abrupt descent of Cheyenne Creek where North Cheyenne Canyon Rd merges with Gold Camp Rd. The hike takes you up beside the face of the falls, then back around to another creek and a promontory from which you can view the entire valley.

Absolutely stunning. Easy intro to altitude changes. Easier hike, and the park is fun to just drive into as well. We went in the morning and there were not many people, it was perfect.
