The Broadmoor Seven Falls, Colorado Springs

4.0
#2 of 6 in Nature in Colorado Springs
Waterfall · Nature / Park
Called “The Grandest Mile of Scenery” in Colorado, the approach to Seven Falls excites the senses and forshadows 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.

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.

For those who want to dive into nature and are seeking adventure, take the 224 steps by the side of the falls that lead to hiking trails and the banks of the glistening stream that feeds the falls, or try the optional Broadmoor Soaring Adventure zip-line tours —a thrilling exploration above Seven Falls, following rope bridges and culminating in a rappel. Others might prefer a more leisurely experience. For them, browsing our shops, dining at the exquisite new Restaurant 1858 or strolling the 2,500-foot-long, natural-surface walking trail is sure to delight.

  • 224 stairs welded into the side of a mountain. What wouldn't be fun about that? I did give myself a little panic attack at about step 220 by looking straight down, but I pushed through and made it to....  more »

  • I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Seven Falls. It’s a beautiful place to see. If you love nature be sure to visit here if you are in the area. Being from the gulf coast I’m not used to hiking up mountains, but it was totally worth it. It is truly a remarkable experience. Be sure to plan ahead to spend a lot of time here if you really want to enjoy seeing everything this place has to offer. There’s a lot of wildlife like geese and other small animals, which I really loved seeing. :)
  • This was a lovely place. The parking is far away from the entrance, a shuttle takes you to the entrance, about 11 minutes. The entrance fee was $15.50 per person. This park is very well manicured and maintained with a couple of adorable shops, restaurants and places to sit and enjoy the scenery. The falls are less than a mile from the entrance and there are beautiful views if you can handle the many steep stairs to the top. Make sure give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this little gem!
  • Thank goodness I visited this place as a kid. Getting to the falls is a little more difficult than back then. The area and the park is beautiful and an interesting experience. PARKING and getting to the Falls: First you must park in a dirt lot near their event center. Bus over to the falls, to be dropped off at the bottom of the hill. Then you must walk the designated path up to the ticket booth. Now mind you this is the SAME path that anyone who is already at the falls takes to LEAVE. So you are basically a salmon swimming up stream on a dirt path under a canopy of trees. Excuse me, pardon me, excuse me, pardon me. Then once to the booth purchase your ticket for $15.50. IF you would like a tram ride the other .8 miles up the mountain YOU have to mention to the staff that you want to pay the extra $2. They are not prone to ask you ahead of time if you would like to ride the tram. So maybe some training to the staff on how to assist MOST of their visitors in how things work since they have probably NEVER visited. Once you take the often crowded tram ride the rest of the way up the hill, things from there are good. Until its time to leave. Once again, the tram ride back down. Now again mind you, you are more than welcome to walk that distance UP the hill and BACK down for free... be advised that the road really isn't lit until the headlights of the tram hit the pavement if you are visiting in the evening. Once you are back down now its your turn to stand on the dirt path and wait in what may be in a long line for the shuttle back to the parking lot. If you're lucky like we were the bus driver will hit every pot hole in the road the WHOLE WAY BACK. Oh and don't forget the ride BACK will be longer than the ride up because the shuttle MUST drive past the Broadmoor hotel for your viewing pleasure.
  • Because there is lack of parking at the falls, you have to take a shuttle which takes about 10 minutes. The falls are beautiful and so is the hike to them. There a lot of really neat rock formations along the way. To view the falls, you can walk up sets of stairs or take an elevator to one observatory. The staircases are open so if you fear heights, like me, the elevator is a good option. Great views from above. There is a restaurant by the falls but you have to make reservations. There are 2 souvenir shops to make purchases and buy snacks/water.
  • A beautiful spot to walk up and then go see the falls (and grab dinner/lunch if you so choose at the restaurant at the top). Park was well maintained with nice paved roads and I couldn't see any trash on the roads or in the trees/on the trail. All the staff was very nice, from the workers in the place, to the shuttle drivers to get your there. I would recommend being prepared to spend a bit of time up here, since you're paying $15.50 you best take advantage of it :). There are hiking trails, dining, a gift shop, and of course the steps up to the 7 falls. If you go in the night, the falls are lighted up. We weren't able to see this, but wish we had known so we did! Overall a nice place and experience.
