This hike starts at the Gold Camp Road parking lot in North Cheyenne Canyon Park, goes up Gold Camp Road, past the Seven Bridges trail, up and over a collapsed tunnel, then up trail 624 to the falls. Total elevation gain is about 1,000′. The trail was mostly packed snow and icy, but our microspikes made mincemeat of the ice. The dominant feature while approaching the falls is Cookstove Mountain. It was interesting to see the falls completely iced over. The trail follows the creek for about 1.5 miles, which adds a nice dimension.
