Helen Hunt Falls is a local favorite. Nice area to walk and view the falls.

Look up Hellen Hunt Falls for proper address. Posted address will take you up the wrong road deep into the forest with no signal.

Named after one of our area's first women activists. She wrote the novel Ramona and pressured Congress for better treatment of Native American people. there are several nice hikes in the area of the falls as well as a new nature center "The Cub" that has been opened in the past year.

Talk to me about the loop I want you to do that takes in Old Gold Camp Road through old mining tunnels, then comes down Cheyenne Canyon where you stop and do a short hike up Helen Hunt Falls and then drive by Star Kemps place (the sculptures in the yard are amazing) on your way to the Broadmoor Hotel. You must walk through the hotel and around the lake (the views of the mountains and golf course are so lovely). Finish with a coffee or wine on the patio overlooking the lake.

It's free which is a plus. It's a beautiful place to bring kids or family from out of town to enjoy a waterfall and a nice, light hike. it's also really beautiful in the winter time when it's mostly frozen.
