Really well maintained trail system with some nice challenging climbs. Next time I’ll come with my MTB!

Tough to find the trail head... great views when you’re on it though!

Beautiful hike mid day - short and easy for kids! Parking is tricky so we parked a ways away and just walked to the trailhead.

A fun, adventurous hike. Take the hummingbird trail to connect as it dead ends a mile up. Views are amazing from the top. 1/3 of the trail is steep and has loose scree. be prepared to use hands. Follow orange markers. Great leg workout.

Highly recommended. We only walked to Union and back. Lots of traffic, but it was a holiday weekend. Paved to Union and well maintained gravel on north side of creek.

Loved it! Our dog enjoyed it also!! One side is pavement, and the other is nice trail with lots of side trails! There is an option to cross the creek or go up to a path on the road. Everything was clearly marked. I will definitely be coming back!!

Well maintained, beautiful path that is accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels. Really pretty views of the rocks throughout and definitely worth a trip if you have the time. I've been in the summer and winter, and it was gorgeous both times of the year. It can get super crowded though, so try and go on a weekday or early in the morning if you are able.

Lost a pair of keys, black Honda key on black and gold lanyard with red die keychain. If found contact : JShaver212@gmail.com

Great time exploring garden os the gods. Just did trail running and took random trails and connected to others. It was fairly busy. Happy that dogs are allowed in this area! It’s beautiful here. Can’t wait to explore more!

Very awesome hike to the top. Difficult for sure. Lots of steep parts. I’m not from CO so the elevation sickness hit me a little. There’s a lot of parts that don’t have shade so be prepared to bring sunblock and/or rain gear. Lots of parts on the trail that is loose rock. The parking lot at the trailhead is big but was very packed today. We had to park about 1/4 mile before Helen Hunt Falls trailhead and make the hike up to the top. The views were amazing and worth the hike.

this is a less popular hike from the trailhead parking lot = less people!. arrived at 730am and upper parking lot was full (July 3rd). found a spot along the road though. the first part of the hike is on an old gravel access road which has nice views of Colorado Springs. it is also mostly unshaded. once you get to the intersecting trails Mays Peak trail enters the wooded area with dappled sunshine and shade. it is a moderate hike with the steepest slope at the end. this is a good trail and a nice workout. you will have an almost 360 degree view from the top! I will be back to hike the intersecting trails!

Great trail right in the middle of town. Though it's sandwiched within residential, you feel like you are on an isolated trail. Tons of wildflowers, bunnies, birds, but also rattlesnakes! Be careful - I went out at 8am and they were already out on the trail. This is an easy 2-mile hike with hardly any elevation gain. Trail is actually the Prairie Loop trail. I would suggest going counterclockwise if in the summer so that you start out in the sun while it's still cool, then the second half has some awesome shady areas. The trail itself is soft dirt/gravel. Happy hiking!

Definitely on the hard side of moderate. Decent views, lots of shade throughout trail. Easy to do Mt. Cutler while you’re there. Several rocky areas where I had to climb with my hands for extra support. A few spots with loose gravel that were difficult on the decent, I wouldn’t recommend taking small children to the top.

Get there early to find parking and you will enjoy the hike. Nice trail along the creek that climbs about 1400 feet. Waterfall was a let down but the way up was fun!

Very easy hike if you wanted to just get out and about. Pretty views. Flies bite.

Great views at the top of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs, the Airforce Academy and Rampart Reservoir. The hike is all uphill, no switchbacks. So going back down is as difficult as going up. It's also very easy to get off trail.

The last mile is a little steeper of a climb than the the first 2 miles, and it definitely feels like quite a long mile. I recommend downloading the map for this trail, as I lost signal throughout. A little gravel-y on the way down wear some good shoes and be careful! The parking lot had a few spots left around 7-7:15, but I think it was just a busy weekend. The stream babbles along the trail during the wooded section of this hike and makes for a wonderful morning. Although it's quite a climb towards the end, the view at the Falls is worth it! Nice shaded areas up at the top for some rest and snack breaks! Come prepared with more water than you think you need, and have fun!

Arrived around 10 am on a Saturday intending to hike Seven Bridges but the lot was slammed. So we drove back down the mountain and decided to do this trail without knowing anything about it. Happy we did! A great hike with a fair amount of incline hiking and decline hiking. We didn't start or finish the trail where the map indicates but still managed to get in 7ish miles total. We took a lunch break at the Helen Hunt Falls which was a great place for a break. I would highly recommend poles for the declines, a lot of the rock is very slick. We encountered a few mountain bikers but they were very good about being heard before they were seen. A bit of road noise at the beginning and end of the trail but the middle was quiet with some nice views.

I enjoyed the options and the adventure; however, the trail app is an asset because trails are not marked.

Good workout. Beautiful patches of Columbine in the upper sections. The lake is dry, sadly. Still a great hike!
