well marked path, went there to hike and ended up getting out of the way of lots of mountain bikers, was some really nice places to see and take pix, but i'm sure I'll be going back to do this soon.

Easy hike with a great reward.

Great moderate trail.

Beautiful hikes. Pretty easy hiking with great views!

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

Saw quite a bit of wildlife out, nice easy to moderate hike if you just want to get out.

I really liked this trail. I have a weakness on my right side so I tried to take it easy but I still got to take great photos and experience the beauty!

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.

Great trail and amazing views! Went on a foggy Sunday and had the whole trail to myself!

Well marked and great views. Great trail to see some wildlife if the right time of year.

Its somewhat scenic but there are lots of homeless campers along the trail.

Amazing trail. DO NOT mountain bike up Seven Bridges. You’ll end up carrying your bike to the top. However, the downhill does make it all worth it.

Awesome views of Colorado Springs! I’ve hiked most of the trails around Cheyenne and this is the best view of the springs. Option to park at the top of Cheyenne canyon and walk or park along old stage road to extend the length of your hike. The rope is a little sketchy but it seems study for now. There’s a lot to climb once you get past the rope! I would highly recommend this hike

Harder at times to see where trail is, but great hike. It was a moderate hike.

One of our favorite trails. Follow the route Alltrails provides so you dont get off track in the dry creekbeds. Dont miss the two side trips: One goes up to the top of large hill for 360 views, the other spur goes into the canyon itself where there are the remains of a homestead at the very end.

My wife and I went on Zook a couple of days ago. She loves hiking, but has fibromyalgia which makes it hard for her to go on the more difficult trails. Zook was easy enough it didn't cause her to feel worn down after, and she still really enjoyed herself.

Beautiful trail. Steep in places and had to do a little scrambling and hiking, but well worth the effort.

Great hike. Did it at dawn this morning and had the trail to myself. Spur trail to Kineo isn’t well marked but your GPS will help greatly. Aspens were is full fall blaze up there. Return trip down was crowded on Seven Bridges, so get up early if you want solitude.

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.

I love Muscoco! I've done it a few times and find the view breathtaking with each visit! If I've learned anything on this trail, it's that a good pair of shoes makes all the difference! Don't be a dumb-dumb like myself and wind up with nasty blisters. I'm a decently in shape 25 year old and found it a little on the challenging side. I only rated it a 4 instead of 5 due to the lack of parking.

One of my favorite trails by far! The views are so beautiful. I went midway on a Monday and there were no other hikers on the trail. The summit is so peaceful and quiet. Would definitely recommend.

Great hike, however using the All Trails MSP was a life savor since indeed the trail at the open area where all trails meet is poorly marked. The hike is great and I was the only person on this 2nd leg and the views are astounding. Great for a family hike and picnic on top overlooking the Springs and the surrounding mountains. Definitely a hike to return to.

I primarily use this location to collect materials for diy projects... although strictly non-organic materials. Things such as bottlecaps, broken glass. Be careful on the first section of the trail if you are starting from the Red Rock Open Space signage. There is quite a bit of glass on that section of the trail.. Although i very much enjoy the walk. Bear Creek is a charming stream with a cute foot bridge and plenty of picnic tables.

One of the best trails I’ve been on. A lot of traffic at first but once you get further back into the bridges it lightens up. Beautiful river and pretty good inclines in places. Will be on my top five list for sure.

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!

Beautiful views. Easy hike. Safe area.

I trail ran this and GPS mapped it the other day. Im running this area often and plugging away at peaks. Noticed this wasnt on AllTrails after look at my Pikes Peak Atlas. I highly recommend scrabbling up the boulders at the end to get the mountain range overlook. Must have sat up there for 15 minutes just enjoying the view and mapping out other trails / peaks. Nice easy run to the top

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!

Beautiful trail system. It was hard for me but I am old, overweight and from Arkansas.

The walk to seven falls is very touristy. Parking has to be done off-site, with a shuttle taking you to the entrance gate and ticket booth at a cost of $14.50 per adult. They even offer a tram to take you the 0.8 miles from the entrance gate to the base of the falls, for an extra $2.00 fee. The walk to the falls is paved paths. Even the creek itself has had man-made modifications to it. It's a lot of stairs (224) going up to the top of the falls, with one very small landing area at the halfway point. A number of people stopped on the stairs to take breaks, which made traffic flow rather slow. The hike to inspiration point was far less commercialized and far less busy with a rather mild climb to the top. The view at the top of Inspiration Point, however, was great!
