A Walk overlooking the waterfalls - Seven Falls, Colorado Springs #TravelTale

The Seven Falls is a tourist attraction with 7 cascading falls in South Cheyenne Canon in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. This is privately owned by Broadmoor group. Seven Falls is Colorado's only waterfall which is included in National Geographic list of International waterfalls. 

Seven Falls, Colorado Springs

I wouldn't say, this is a fantastic waterfall as the area where water flows is not very big and the waterfall is thin. But, the water falls from a height of 181 ft and there are 224 steps to climb and view the waterfalls close which is amazing. 

Due to a severe damage of the Seven falls because of heavy rains in 2013, Seven falls has become only 5 cascading falls. The Broadmoor took the ownership, repaired the place and reopened for the public in 2015. 

The Broadmoor is providing a complimentary parking and shuttle service at 1045 Lower Gold Camp Rd. The Admission to the falls is $14.50 for adults and $9 for kids. Children below 2 years are free to visit. Visit their official page to know exact hours and price of tickets.

The Shuttle service from the parking area takes us to the entrance/ticket booth. We need to walk a distance of 0.8 miles to reach the base of the waterfalls. There is a tram facility at $2 per person if they cannot walk till the base of falls.

There is an elevator facility available to reach inspiration point which gives a good view of the waterfalls. But, we wanted to take stairs to enjoy the waterfalls from near. There are 224 steps and many of them are very steep. It is slightly difficult to go with kids below 5 years of age but that's not impossible. The steps are steep and so we cannot hold a baby and climb them. It's better to take the elevator if you have to hold a baby. 

Keep enough water and light snacks for the hike. We came across small cascading waterfalls like Bridal Veil, Shorty, Hill, Hull, Romana, and Weimer falls. After reaching to the top by taking 224 steps, there are different trails. One trail will reach Inspiration point, whereas another trail goes to midnight falls. 

The falls are good to visit in Summer/ Fall when there is more water. I would say, it is a great experience to visit the falls in winter too if you love to see a frozen fall. 

In the evenings, the Broadmoor also lights up the falls for the visitors.
