The Grandest Mile of Scenery

By Linda Tancs

More than just a mile of waterfalls, Colorado’s Seven Falls envelope your senses with not only seven cascading waterfalls but also towering cliffs above the canyon floor and colorful backlighting at night.  The best way to experience the attraction, known as The Grandest Mile of Scenery, is to take the 224 steps by the side of the falls that lead to two hiking trails.  Just 10 minutes from Colorado Springs and five minutes from the luxurious Broadmoor Hotel, this natural wonder in South Cheyenne Canyon was named to National Geographic’s list of international waterfalls.   Purchased earlier this year by the Broadmoor, the attraction is due to undergo renovations and enhancements.  Check their site for opening dates and updated information.
