The approach to Seven Falls excites the senses and foreshadows the dramatic landscape ahead. Crystal clear water from the Pikes Peak watershed has shaped a spectacular natural box canyon: the steep-walled, enclosed canyon that’s become symbolic of the American West.
THE PILLARS OF HERCULES
The towering Pillars of Hercules flank the canyon and amplify its grandeur as they rise to over 900 feet above the canyon floor… while narrowing to a mere 41 feet apart. And cutting through their pink granite, we find the only waterfall in Colorado to have earned a spot on National Geographic’s list of International Waterfalls.
STEP INTO A NATURAL WONDER
Once inside Seven Falls, you’ll be enveloped by cliffs and delighted by the cascade of water. The falls tumble 181 feet down the head of this box canyon, dancing from granite face to granite face in seven distinct leaps.
