    Helen Hunt Falls Loop

    The Helen Hunt Falls Loop is an awesome adventure that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Traveling through mixed pine forests, along creeks, and through corridors of granite spires, the trail to the waterfalls is just as scenic, if not more.

    Route Description for Helen Hunt Falls Loop

    The Helen Hunt Falls Loop is an awesome adventure near Colorado Springs that’s beauty is unparalleled. Immerse yourself in verdant woodlands decorated with granite outcrops on your way to the mesmerizing falls. Sections of the route are rocky and uneven, so we highly suggest a pair of sturdy footwear! Additionally, segments are unmarked, so consider bringing along the trail GPS to easily navigate the terrain! Note that part of this hike travels along a road open to vehicle traffic; if you wish to avoid this, consider making this trek an out-and-back experience.
