Silver Cascade Falls - Colorado Springs, Colorado
Silver Cascade Falls
Silver Cascade Falls can be reached by hiking a short but steep trail up from North Cheyenne Canyon road at the Helen Hunt Falls trail head. The falls have an interesting spout feature about 50 feet (15 m) below the crest due to an upturn in the rock face. During high flow times, the spout can shoot water over 10 feet (3 m) off the rock face. In the winter, ice climbers can be seen practicing their sport on the frozen waterfall.
Care should be taken especially at the top of the falls, as the granite face of the falls is polished, slippery, and much steeper than it appears.
