Definitely hard finding the trail head. But what was a great hike even with the snow and ice.

I’ve been trying to find this stinking trail head for months and was so excited to finally hike it!!! Probably not the smartest in late November seeing as it was a ton of ice and we slid the whole way. I will come back to it in the spring but this time of year I don’t recommend for kids or older people or anyone who doesnt mind falling a lot. So exciting to find all 7 bridges though.

Nice sidewalk around a small lake with lots of birds. Nice playground area & swings. Great for pokemon go.

Very pretty rock formations. Flat walk/hike mostly on pavement.

Loved it!!

If you are an avid hiker, this is not very exciting.

Some pretty underwhelming bridges. I will say the middle of Cheyene Canon was very nice though. It was super windy, very quiet and peaceful, may as well just hang out around the center and views from the side and skip the bridges.

This trail gave me a tour of complete garden of the gods area. The landscape is so beautiful I can't explain in words.. Must do for everyone. Loved it.

Nice trail!

Great trail and very easy to hike

very nice trail run

This is a beautiful hike. The trailhead is about a mile from the parking lot on the right and is marked as 622. Above the last bridge, there’s a lot of loose gravel/rocks that can get a bit sketchy at times. The trail shifts to 622A, which will take you to the Apens. After the Aspens, you will come to a trail junction. To the far right you will see an unmarked trail that will take you to the top of Keneo. This hike is all up, but definitely worth it. Took us about 2 hours up and about and 1:15 to get down. We took lots of picture.

Beautiful trail. Very scenic with the running water, bridges and foliage. The only downside was the walk from the parking lot to the trailhead. It was littered with dog waste so you had to be careful where you walked. Pet owners need to pick up after their pets.

Trail is maintained very well, very calming hike next to the flowing stream. The entire trail is uphill, however the top is worth reaching for the view of the valley.

Beautiful hikes. Pretty easy hiking with great views!

Pretty easy hike, paved mostly so great for littles. Awesome rock formations to check out too!

A terrific trail to view and appreciate the beauty contained within Garden of the Gods Park. Not only outstanding scenery but definitely less traveled than the central garden paths. Be certain to keep a watchful eye out for Bighorn Sheep on the Northern portion of the trail. Plenty of photo opportunities along this trail featuring plenty of fabulous red rock formations.

Just hiked it today. Very pretty trail with a good size aspen grove at the end. The leaves will be gone soon. Some of the trees are already bare. Hurry if you want to see them. The trail is definitely moderate with one pretty sketchy spot if you continue past the last bridge. You won’t like that part if you’re not too crazy about heights. Lots of slippery loose gravel. It’s more like 5.8 miles there and back if you keep going to get to the aspens.

Hiked this trail today. Trail maintenance group were working on the trail which is very well maintained. As Ashley Reed pointed out last week this trail us NOT marked as Seven Bridges Trail, but as Trail 622. Trailhead is about a mile up Gold Camp Road from the final parking lot above Helen Hunt Falls. We only hiked up to Bridge #7, but others coming down from the top of the trail said the aspens were peak. North Cheyenne Creek runs all along the trail with several small falls. Beautiful trail, great day!

Very good hike! Challenging but very rewarding. We went over labor day weekend so it was busy. Uphill the whole way made for a great workout. Would recommend!

The Palmer Trail and the Susan G. Bretag trail wrap around the outside of the park to offer some great distant views of the rock formations! Great opportunity to get away from the crowds.

Great uphill hike. Used it for training (backpacking) for my dog and I. Uphill the entire way out, so downhill back. Rewarded w/ a beautiful aspen meadow at the top. Lots of creek access for water and ambiance. Really enjoyed it. 5.8 miles out and back.

I did this hike on the way to Kineo Mountain. Pretty easy hike with a lot of familes with small children and dogs. I highly suggest continuing on past the 7th bridge for a more secluded hike and more of a challenge as most people turn around. My dog of course loved all the water to play in and there are some great hammock and lunch spots in the trees along the river.

Nice trial, great views of water. When you get to the parking lot take the entrance on the left with a small gate and walk down till you see 622 on the right and go to the right.

A nice, easy paved city trail. Wheelchair friendly, at least around the main park area. There is also a wooded disc golf area.

I expected to go to a hiking trail next to sand creek but it turned out it's just a giant sidewalk that kind of follows the creek. I wouldn't go back unless my GPS led me down the trail to get to another destination.
