Short hike in Cheyenne Canyon to some interesting falls. Take the trail that leads up above Helen Hunt Falls. Continue up the hillside on this trail as it does a couple of switchbacks. Cross a small bridge near the end and head out to the overlook surrounded by a rock wall. These falls are beautiful when flowing strong, but dry up quickly to a trickle.

Would rate this as moderate as the rating on the trailhead sign says. A beautiful hike. Stunning views.

From the top of the Helen Hunt Falls, you have the option to hike to the upper falls (Silver Cascade). The trail is very clearly marked and beautifully maintained. There are several benches along the way for anyone new to hiking or just needing to catch their breath. The trail ends at the Cascade and a beautiful overview of the valley.

Like I said, not at all challenging, but certainly a great place to take people who may not be confident hikers.

This short easy trail gives great views of Helen Hunt Falls and of the canyon. The trail itself moves through a pine and spruce forest giving it good shade. Trail 360 on YouTube
