Partially encased by a one-mile canyon, the sight of seven separate falls splashing together down 181 vertical feet borders on stunning. Picturesque by day, dancing with color at night, this is not to be missed. Ride the elevator to the Eagles Nest observation platform for an great view or climb up 224 steps to reach the one-mile nature trail offering a panoramic peek of the city below. Parking is limited and scarce after 6p. Timings are subject to monthly change, do check the website.
The 224 steps up was a bit challenging, but doable at our own pace. It took about an hour to go up the steps, then up the trail to Inspiration Point where there were a couple of graves. The falls were beautiful and so was the magnitude of the canyon.
the price was way too expensive for what you see. the waterfalls are so tiny and not worth the view. the stairwells are steep and sleek. they dont refund your money if it rains just give you a raincheck. and leaving rocks were falling and chipped the paint on our car pretty bad
The fee to get into Seven Falls is way too expensive for what they have to offer. I have lived in Colorado Springs for 23 years, and I do not recommend this place to my out of state vistors. Helen Hunt falls is just as good or better and FREE!
We took our 2 year old grandson there July 5th and stopped in to get some information at the Visitors' Center only to find it closed at 10AM. We then drove to the ticket booth to ask about the Discovery Center and the lady working there said "I've never been there.....don't think it opens til Wednesday". Duh! The price of admission is not worth the elevator ride to view the waterfalls. We were hoping for some easy trail to walk along with our grandson. Very disappointing!!! I would not recommended it for anyone. Save your money and go to Pike's Peak instead.
Quite boring attraction for us ..We just used the mountain elevator ..it ws nt worth spending time ..may be at night with all lights it may look wonderful .. or one need to go down the stairs just near the waterfalls to enjoy that .. With babies n little kids its a total waste of time .
Seven falls is a wonderful place to take your family to see the true beauty of the Rocky Mountains, Its close enough to the city to be able to go and enjoy the view. It is especialy beautiful when the lights are up for Christmas. Take the time to realy enjoy the views no need to rush such a wonderful opportunity.
The fee is not justified at all. I would rather like to drive in the area of Colorado Springs than wasting even 10 minutes of time. It appears as if they spend good money on marketing to make this location sound like a 'great' plece while it is not.
I think the falls are a great way to spend a couple hrs in some beautiful scenery. Yes there are gift shops stairs and a elevator but they are as much a help as a distraction. I took the elevator and the stairs near the falls and got some very cool pics of flowing water from both. I took over 100 pics in about 2 hrs, and would like to go back with a tripod. Nothing really bugged me here, the stairs made it easy for small kids even though its hard to keep them out of photos. Beautiful with good flow even late in summer.
I went last night. It was beautiful. I have two teenage sons that thought it was "okay". You will wait in line at least 30 minutes to get to the toll gate but it is worth it. Go around seven and then hang around for the lights to come on. It is nice to see it both ways. The drive up to it is as pretty if not more than the actual falls.
What used to be a nice Fall has been so commercialized that it wouldnt suprise me if the fall had the water pumped in . There is a railing(ladder) running right up the side of the fall . Concrete platforms around the bottom with curbs and more railing. Was very disappointed. Like going to a city park. Very sad what man thinks this is improvement.
