COLORADO'S GRANDEST MILE
Behind you the prairies extend for hundreds of dry miles to the east. Ahead, the foothills rise abruptly, divided by winding streams that have carved out verdant valleys. Enter South Cheyenne Canyon – only five minutes from The Broadmoor – and you find yourself immersed in Colorado’s famous natural beauty at Seven Falls.
Called “The Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado”, 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.
SO MUCH MORE THAN A WATERFALL
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. Browse our shops or stroll the 2,500-foot-long, natural-surface walking trail!
