Create an itinerary including The Broadmoor Seven Falls
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.

  • This would be a five except for the wait for the shuttles both coming and going. The views are spectacular and the stairs are steep but doable. Tip: there are parking lots on the way to the entrance for other hikes. Park there and walk the 1/4-1/2 mile to the entrance. You can also enjoy those hikes as well as a few at the top of the stairs. Hikes at top of falls are easy and level and well groomed gravel. Sneakers will do the trick on these hikes. Take water and respect the elevation.
  • Stunning waterfalls and great place to hike! There is about a mile walk to the falls (unless you take a tram), and then more hiking once you get above the falls. Only fit people should make the climb up the stairs next to the falls; it is pretty exhausting. There are two great trails (one 20 minute hike to a lookout point, and another 10 minute hike to a separate waterfall) above the falls that are worth taking.
  • Pretty but there are so many reasons to avoid. Especially since the area has better attractions. There is no local parking and the lines are long to wait for the shuttle. You will spend an hour just on parking. Then, when we got to the ticket office there was another long line and only one window open. And the cost is not reasonable. After that on a hot day you get to walk close to a mile before you get to the falls. Which are not really falls on most days, but an illusion, generated by a water pump that recycles water from the bottom to the top. If they shut off the pump, the falls would be a trickle and no one would come. The owners figured this out long ago and made a deal with the city so they could add the recycler. Given the effort and cost required to make it to the top of the falls we would never do this again. And given all the negatives I now understand why the locals avoid this place. Go to Helen Hunt falls, or 7 bridges hike if you want to see water and a much better experience.
  • Seven Falls is a privately owned scenic attraction in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The falls are pretty, but viewing them from an observation platform takes about 10 minutes. If you choose to climb the 240 stairs to the top, that round trip would probably be another 30 minutes. Unfortunately, there is no public parking near Seven Falls and you have to take a shuttle bus both ways. We waited 70 minutes in the first parking lot and 40 minutes for the return trip, both of which took about 15 minutes. Almost all of the amenities at the park were closed, even though it was a very busy summer day. So, in summary, we paid $17 apiece and 3.5 hours of our time to look at the Falls for 10 minutes. Oh, did I mention that most of the year the water that flows through the Falls is recirculated city water?
  • Amazing place, OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD. He has created this world beautifully. You can not go to Seven Falls, and still wonder if God created the world. The staff was very friendly. We loved this place. The parking lot in town is a little ways out, but the shuttle buses do a pretty good job at taking you to and from Seven Falls.
