Things to do in Colorado Springs - Hike Helen Hunt Falls
Helen Hunt Falls — named after Helen Hunt Jackson, author and social activist in the late 19th century — marks the abrupt descent of Cheyenne Creek where North Cheyenne Canyon Rd merges with Gold Camp Rd. The hike takes you up beside the face of the falls, then back around to another creek and a promontory from which you can view the entire valley.This is a good family hike; dog friendly as long as you keep your pet on a leash. Picnic areas abound at and near the site. Drive carefully through the canyon; the road is narrow and people hike and bike in the traffic lanes.
