Take West Cheyenne road or West Cheyenne boulevard to the Starsmore Discovery Center entrance and then drive up toward Helen Hunt Falls. Once you pass the HH Falls visitor center keep going up until you get to the parking area. From there walk the Gold Camp road, past the gate, .7 miles until you hit the Seven Bridges trailhead.

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.

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.

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

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!

Nice easy hike. It’s beautiful as you hike along the creek most of the way.

Really enjoyed this trail. We just hiked it in winter, however, there was no snow and just a couple of patches of ice which were easy to get through. The scenery was beautiful. My only qualm is that the trail wasn’t marked as Seven Bridges trail.

Here from Florida and loved this hike. Non-locals need to know that after parking in the lot, there is about 1/4 mile walk on a service road to get to the trail head and it doesn’t reference Seven Bridges—but it is the trail. The trek is pretty easy until after the 7th bridge, then it becomes steeper going up. Nice views at the end.

Beautiful trail! Well maintained, albeit crowded. The trail continues after the 7th bridge up some fun and treacherous slopes and into grassy meadows filled with aspens.
