Hike to Helen Hunt Falls & Silver Cascades

0.65 Miles Round Trip - 300 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Helen Hunt Falls Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Jake Sells

For a quick adventure that offers awesome views of Cheyenne Canyon, this is a great hike to pair with another adventure in the area!

Park at the log-cabin visitor's center on North Cheyenne Canyon Rd just before it turns into Gold Camp Rd. I definitely recommend arriving early, as the parking lot fills up quickly. Helen Hunt Falls is in sight of the parking area, and another 1/3 mile past that you'll run into Silver Cascades.

The trail can get quite busy, so I'd recommend visiting on a weekday if possible.

Pair this adventure with one of the many others right off North Cheyenne Canyon Rd!

Easy And Crowded

Short and crowded walk up to the viewing platform. Nice views of the falls and COS at the top, but be prepared to be surrounded by people.
