North Cheyenne Cañon Park
North Cheyenne Cañon Park Review
This is Colorado Springs at its best. Nearby Seven Falls has the hand of man all over its natural wonders, but the 1,600 acres of this city park, which is open year-round, manifest nature and natural history without a hint of commercialism—or charge. The canyon's moderate hikes include the Lower Columbine and Mount Cutler trails, each less than a 3-mile round-trip. Both afford a view of the city and a sense of accomplishment.
Starsmore Discovery Center. At the mouth of the canyon off Cheyenne Boulevard, this center is chock-full of nature exhibits and has a climbing wall where kids can try their hands and feet against gravity. 2120 S. Cheyenne Canyon Rd, 80906. Apr.–Oct., daily. Call for hrs.
