Beautiful walk up to ... I'm sure the 224 steps looked out to beauty but I'm terrified of heights and kept my head down the whole time and I still did it and did it with my 7 month old baby on my back.,Super terrifying .. only complaint the steps are not wide enough for people to safely go up and down side by side. just seemed very very dangerous. The trail at the top was very easy hike.

Park at the Broadmoor then ride a shuttle to the entrance (both free). $14 per adult to get in. Walk .8 mile up an asphalt road and you get to the 224 step staircase. Once at the top follow man made trails for about a half hour and turn around. Cheesy gift shops.. this isn't a hike. However, scenery was nice and a mama bear with her cubs about 30 feet off the asphalt road.

A dizzying climb but exciting at the top.

So apparently you are supposed to park at the broadmoor hotel and pay 14$ to ride a shuttle to get to 7 falls.

Once again, very surprised to see that no one has written in about this place. I've gone in here many times, and it's always a pleasure. It's well worth the drive in here, and the hike up the 224 steep steps to the top of the falls are a must. Spring time is best to see the falls at their peak flow. It has been dubbed "The grandest mile of scenery" in Colorado. There is one section while driving up the canyon that is only 41 feet apart from one wall to the other. Super narrow and super high canyon walls too, around 900 feet high right there. The falls are also lit up at night for a completely different experience. A must do if you're in Colorado Springs
