4 Things to Love About Seven Falls

by Morgan Large on August 13, 2013

I recently visited Seven Falls in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

It was one of the highlights of my recent bus trip through the Midwest and West.

DSC_0344The 181-ft Seven Falls is a compilation of seven miniature waterfalls that merge into one.

Below you will find four things to love about Seven Falls and that might make you want to take a visit.

Seven Falls 1. Location:

You head down a tight and windy path with a river alongside the road to Seven Falls.

You see mountains as high as you can see on either side of you.

This roadway is called “The Grandest Mile of Scenery” in Colorado.

You would never think this natural wonder would be awaiting you.

2. Light show:

At night, a fabulous display of a color light show takes over the falls.

Colors change from hues of purple to a rainbow of vibrant colors.

While the show was going on, I was able to climb up the first flight of stairs and snap some gorgeous photos.

The view was awe-inspiring. I did not make it up any further because the see-through steps, height, and even longer travel up the mountain had me a little scared!

3. Native American culture:

This area is riddled with Native American culture and stories about the natives that used to live there.

Native Americans walk the grounds dressed in the costumes of their forefathers, and they even performed ritual dances of their people on the stage.

4. Uniqueness:

The view of the seven waterfalls merging into one is unique and beautiful.

Seven FallsThere’s an elevator to view the falls from across the mountain for those who want the view without ALL of the steps, but there’s some steps at the top of the elevator location that offer an even-better view.

This place is one of a kind, which is why it keeps attracting people.
