Seven Falls has been a treasured piece of Colorado Springs history that is a truly inspirational destination.
A sojourn there is so much more than just a visit to a waterfall. The enclave is reminiscent of an otherworldly, mystical garden that is a feast for the senses. The combination of the sound of rushing water, the sight of the variety of flora and fauna, the scent of the ever-present dampness mixed with fresh mountain air, and the sheer beauty of the surroundings is a true balm for the soul.
The series of seven waterfalls is located in a 1,250-foot-wall box canyon between the towering Pillars of Hercules, and tumbles over 180 feet through seven distinct leaps of sparkling water. The falls can be accessed either by traversing 224 steps to the top, hiking the one-mile trial, or by zipping up 14 stories to the Eagle’s Nest observation platform via a swift elevator ride.
