Hike the Seven Bridges Trail

Colorado Seven Bridges Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

Count the seven bridges on this scenic hike near Colorado Springs. Great views of the water all along the way.

Follow North Cheyenne Creek through the canyon as it forms several cascades along the way. Due to water levels, spring is an especially good time for this hike.

Most turn around just past the seventh bridge, where the trail starts to disappear.

Pretty good quick hike along the river. The drive up goes through gold camp road which is a really cool drive. Its a nice hike if you just want to go somewhere quick and get out!
