Seven Falls in Colorado Springs

      Have you ever wondered why it is called Seven Falls? As the falls splash its way down the 181 foot granite cliff it is actually spread along the way into seven tiers. In order starting with Ramona Falls, Feather Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Shorty Falls, Hull Falls, Weimer Falls and Hill Falls.

    Seven Falls is an awe inspiring place to take friends and family when they come to visit. Seven Falls was severely damaged by a flood on September 12th 2013. It was then bought by the Broadmoor and wonderfully restored. After a two year renovation project it was reopened August 13th 2015.  According to a KOAA article it was at a cost of 12 million. Seven Falls had been a family owned business since 1946. It was owned by oil man Al Hill and his family.

     If you are feeling spry and full of energy you can climb 224 steps to two great hiking trails. Along the way up as you stop to catch your breath you can stop to marvel at the magnificent waterfall. The Broadmoor boasts that the "Seven Falls is the only waterfall in Colorado to have earned a spot on National Geographic’s list of International Waterfalls." Does the thought of climbing 224 steps sound far to daunting? No Worries. There is an in mountain elevator you can safely ride up to the Eagles Nest to admire the breathtaking views.
