Pet Friendly Travel: Seven Falls, Colorado
It has been called the “Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado.”
Located in South Cheyenne Canyon, Seven Falls cascades 181 feet in seven distinct steps down a solid cliff of pikes peak granite. Crystal clear water from the southern most edges of the Pikes Peak watershed have, over the ages, carved this unique scenic masterpiece in an easily accessed location.
Pets are welcome on leash, allowed in shops and trails, but not café. Watering and baggie stations on premises.
Stairway for the Midnight Falls
Next to the Falls, a 224-step stairway leads to a system of trails that will take you to “Midnight Falls” and then onto Inspiration Point with a breath-taking view of Colorado Springs and the great plains beyond. Wildlife is everywhere, including hummingbirds, rainbow trout and the rare, waterfall nesting- American Dipper. Blasted 14 stories straight up through solid granite, a mountain elevator safely transports all who venture here to the “Eagles Nest” platform, where the most spectacular view of Seven Falls is experienced.
Seven Falls is located just ten minutes from downtown Colorado Springs via Cheyenne Blvd. and is open every day of the year except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and New Years Day. From mid-May to Labor Day the summer nights come alive with a fascinating glow. The entire canyon is illuminated in a veil of light, culminating with the Seven Falls in a brilliant display of color.
