  • We did this hike with our 3-year-old and 5-year-old boys in July. We all loved it. Get there as early as you can. The traffic on the trail definitely picks up as the day progresses.

  • I’m not as athletic so this hike kicked my butt getting through the seven bridges because of the inclines BUT it was worth it! It was easier going down :)! It took about an hour and a half to get to the seventh bridge from the parking lot and about 40 minutes to get back down to the parking lot. We took stops along the way from the parking lot to the entrance because it was so hot with the gravel road. Once you enter the entrance there is a little more shade so it feels a lot cooler. I would do this hike again just for the sounds of the creek while your hiking along it. :)
  • Lovely trailhead with many options off of it for your adventure needs in North Cheyenne Canon. Would like to note that this is also a parking for May's Peak and any of the areas off of High Drive. May's Peak offers a lovely view of the city and of Cheyenne Mountain. High Drive area is also excellent for mountain bikers. Dogs are always allowed. However, parking lot does fill up quickly! Really need to get here as early as you can if you want any parking.
  • Amazing hike! 3.5 mile with about 900 feet of elevation change, loved the views, and the sound of rushing water was a lovely addition to the hike. The thin air for sure humbled me, I'm used to hiking the Appalachians, but even being pretty out of shape I got this hike done, so it's accessable to a broad range of people. Large parking area with a portable restroom. Would highly recommend.
  • Well maintained trails and bridges, a moderate hike mostly by a stream. Bring water and a jacket or coat. Other than restrooms at the beginning, there are no amenities. It's also on leash dog friendly. We hiked in just a couple of miles and there was still plenty to explore!
  • Beautiful mountain hike not too far from town, but tricky road to drive on. Very popular (quite a few people) on the weekend. From the parking lot, there's a wide gravel road for easiest walking. Several bridges trail is a little more difficult with rocks, root branches, and some incline. But the progress markers of the seven bridges is fun, and it is nice to hike next to the mountain stream. Past the 7th bridge, the difficulty increases and number of people decreases, but it is neat to see different landscapes of the mountain and get good views. If you go past the seven bridges, be prepared for loose gravel. If it's the weekend, you might have to go really early or wait for someone to leave to get a spot in the parking lot. We got lucky & a morning hiker was leaving just as we got there. Late April/ early May, the weather was perfect.
