Helen Hunt Falls Colorado Springs
The Helen Hunt Falls can be found just south of Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs in the North Cheyenne Cañon Park. It’s free to enter and was recommended to us on our Manitou Springs Road Trip over the much hyped Seven Falls. I’ll still have to check that one out and compare.
The drive through Cheyenne Cañon to the waterfalls is lovely with many opportunities to stop along the Cheyenne Creek. Once you arrive at the Helen Hunt Falls parking lot, you can see the Helen Hunt waterfall, and the footbridge crossing it, right away. After a short but steep hike, you arrive at the top of Silver Cascade Falls with the great view of the foothills, valley and city below as seen in the video.
