About the Stewardship Site:
Just a short drive from downtown Colorado Springs, Helen Hunt Falls is a stunning destination in North Cheyenne Canyon Park that visitors can admire from above on a wooden bridge, or from below via a short hike. The area also offers a recently renovated visitor center with interpretive exhibits and guided hikes; its proximity to Colorado Springs and ease of access results in more than 100,000 visitors each year!
About the Volunteer Experience:
Volunteers ages 14+ are invited to join us Father's Day Weekend to build a new trail to Helen Hunt Falls! After enjoying a light breakfast provided by our volunteer Crew Chefs, volunteers will get to work on constructing a sustainable route for visitors to visit Helen Hunt Falls directly from the parking lot. For volunteers interested in a more challenging experience, there will be a few work sections that require more technical rock and structure work. Lunch will also be provided.
About the Overall Impact:
With only two existing routes for visitors to enjoy Helen Hunt Falls, volunteers will help reduce crowds at the site by constructing the new trail. Once the North Cheyenne Canyon Master Plan is updated, the new loop trail will act as an important connection to the nearby Columbine Trail and Silver Cascade Falls.
Minors: All youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on single-day projects.
