This site was known locally as "Graffiti Falls" because of the VERY extensive spray paint vandalism. El Paso County is currently cleaning up and improving the site and it should reopen Summer, 2018.

Too MANY Tourists have destroyed this local gem. Totally trashed. Drunken Drug addled teen agers and abusive out oft owners have destroyed a great waterfall.

We wanted to see some Falls while in ColoSprings. Free (but limited) parking and no admission fees. Easy, slight incline, walk to Falls (some paved, rest crushed gravel). The Falls themselves are pretty impressive, the graffiti is a little off putting, but some is very...More

An average waterfall but completely surrounded by graffitti. Only plus points are free parking and short walk to the falls so nothing lost by a quick visit.

Falls just outside of Manitou Springs. This is disappointing to see the grafidi art on the natural rock. It's actually nauseating to me. However it was nice to stop and we talked to many workers that explained they are in attempt to restore it. You...More

Having been to many hiking areas in the Colorado Springs area, this is a pretty easy hike. The scenery is pretty with the waterfalls cascading. It's also kitschy with the graffiti around the bridge.

The graffiti really makes this place! The park to "hike" is temporarily closed, but you can actually hike down right by the falls, next to the bridge! Creates a very modern art look. Loved going here!

I'd read that the bridge over the stream had graffiti, but was not expecting to see how completely it was covered! The walk to the falls is easy as it's a paved path next to the river. (Parking was convenient also) There families around and...More

A lot of graffiti accompanied by a waterfall. As others have stated, kind of sad the amount of paint that has covered up the natural beauty of the falls. I would say if you haven't seen it before it's worth a stop just to see...More
