This is a very beautiful, peaceful, place to see. If you like climbing, you can climb to the top of the waterfall. There is a small visitor center there, too.

We were headed for Seven Falls but made a wrong turn. The road kept going and going with no signs, and then we ended up at Helen Hunt Falls. It is a beautiful small waterfall just a few steps from the parking lot. We visited...More

Waterfalls are commonplace in the Rocky Mountains. None resemble Yosemite or Niagara. But they add to the beautiful scenery that you see everywhere. Helen Hunt Falls is a waterfall with a longest drop of 35 feet that is located on Cheyenne Creek in the North...More

Enjoyed the twisty drive up to the parking lot. Very pretty little waterfall and stream. Nice spot for a hike and some pictures.

Helen Hunt Falls can be driven to.. climbing further up the trail at this time of year (which is basically a 45 minute stair climb) does not result in much more interest after the original view of the falls from the parking lot. I suspect...More
