Update: The Grand Reopening has been postponed and will now be August 13, 2015. Just a little longer!
Often referred to as the “Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado,” the historic Seven Falls has been attracting site-seers since the 1880s. This natural wonder is truly breathtaking with its steep canyon walls and seven distinct falls. The 181-foot cascade has beautifully carved its way through the Pikes Peak granite and left quite an awe-inspiring sight.
As one of the region’s most popular attractions, it was terrible to see it close after the devastating floods in the fall of 2013. Now, this summer, The Broadmoor will reopen Seven Falls, with new adventures and experiences you won’t want to miss!
The grand reopening is scheduled for June 22 (subject to change) and will boast new trails, new activities and a brand new restaurant called 1858, at the base of the falls. 1858 was the year of the Pikes Peak Gold Rush, when estimates of 100,000 gold seekers flooded the region to strike it rich, thus beginning the phrase “Pikes Peak or Bust.” At the new Seven Falls you can take guided hikes, climb the 224 stairs to the top, take the elevator 14-stories to the observation deck, or even get a little daring with the all new zip-line adventure. Later this summer, The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure will offer a 6 to 11 zip-line treetop adventure to those wanting an exhilarating birds-eye-view of the area.
I can’t wait to share more details as they are released and to visit the new Seven Falls this summer! It is going to be great to spend all day exploring the area and finish off the adventure at the delicious 1858.
