Hiking is an activity that can be enjoyed year-round in Colorado. With the Rocky Mountains towering through most of the state, the most difficult question you run into is where you should explore. We’ve got the perfect answer for you: the Seven Falls in Colorado Springs! Located just under a mile from the stunning Broadmoor hotel, Seven Falls is one of the most breathtaking sights in the state.
Start this hike by taking in the exquisite natural beauty that is the Cheyenne Canyon. You’ll begin your trek up what is known as “The Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado”. Water comes cascading down Pikes Peak into the start of Seven Falls. The surrounding granite canyons and falling water create a mythical, almost unearthly experience. Water will splash around you as the climb the 224 steps past seven waterfalls flowing continuously from one to the next. The Broadmoor has made sure this is a safe hike by adding rails and safety steps in particular slippery places.
If getting a little wet doesn’t sound appealing to you, there is always an option to enjoy a nice leisurely walk in the surrounding area. Check out the wildlife and beauty without the strenuous effort of climbing up some waterfalls! Stunning flowers and pink granite cliffs create a unique setting to stroll through with your plus one.

Fly above the falls and rappel among the canyon to see some incredible views and a good adrenaline rush. There is also a restaurant to stop by after you hike to get a bite to eat: Restaurant 1858. The Broadmoor has their world class chefs staffed here to satiate your appetite after a day of adventure. The best part about Seven Falls is that you are more than welcome to bring your canine friends, provided that you keep them leashed. No matter what you end up doing in the area, Seven Falls is an experience that cannot be replicated so be sure to take a day to explore here!
