Hike Dog-friendly Helen Hunt Waterfall

Exhilarating outdoor adventures are everywhere near Colorado Springs KOA Campground.  Load the family and the doggie (plus his leash) into the car and head for North Cheyenne Cañon Park to thrill to the crashing waters of Helen Hunt Falls.

Located on Cheyenne Creek in Colorado Springs, the falls’ name honors Helen Maria Hunt Jackson (October 15, 1830 – August 12, 1885), a United States poet and writer who became an activist on behalf of improved treatment for Native Americans.

Helen Hunt described the waterfall as a “stately minuet of motion over a many-colored surface of rock, more beautiful than a mosaic.

You can enjoy hiking and picnicking at Helen Hunt Falls too. Just about 14 miles from here, North Cheyenne Cañon Park is dog-friendly. The trail offers stairs and handrails for ease of ascending to the top of the falls. And guess what?  It’s FREE!
