Count the seven bridges on this scenic hike near Colorado Springs. Great views of the water all along the way.

Follow North Cheyenne Creek through the canyon as it forms several cascades along the way. Due to water levels, spring is an especially good time for this hike.

Most turn around just past the seventh bridge, where the trail starts to disappear.

Counting all 7 bridges keeps you occupied as you're climbing up the trail! Fun hike, beautiful scenery on the trail & driving up to the parking lot.

Pretty good quick hike along the river. The drive up goes through gold camp road which is a really cool drive. Its a nice hike if you just want to go somewhere quick and get out!

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
