We had to detour to get there due to the senior open event. Once arriving at the place the detour sent us to, we were to board a shuttle with groups of people to go see the falls. Would have loved to see the falls...More

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.

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.

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!

The little walk was nice and the waterfall is amazing , it has a nice little stream for the kids to splash around in. The only downside is all the graffiti there's so much of it that it is starting to destroy the beauty. But...More
