North Cheyenne Cañon Park is located on the southwest side of Colorado Springs. North Cheyenne Cañon Park is cut 1,000-feet deep into the 1.5 billion-year-old granite rock. This 1,600-acre park provides good habitat for large animals such as the Black Bear, Mountain Lion and Mule Deer, and little birds that love water, like the Kingfisher, American Dipper and Broad-tailed Hummingbird. North Cheyenne Creek runs along the bottom of the canyon. Visitors can drive, hike and bike from the entrance of the canyon up to Helen Hunt Falls. Beyond Helen Hunt Falls, North Cheyenne Canyon Road continues until it reaches Gold Camp Road. There is a large parking area where bikers, hikers and runners can access additional trails. Two visitor centers. Starsmore Visitor and Nature Center is located at the entrance to the park. The Helen Hunt Falls visitor center is located near the base of the falls.
