    Great Views!

    The waterfall was beautiful. the stairs weren’t really pet friendly as they have BIG gaps in between. Dogs are welcome on the elevator to the eagles nest tho which was great! Lots of water access for pups, ours didn’t hesitate to jump in. The shuttles are pet friendly and it costs $20 per person to get in.

    Absolutely Loved!

    What isn’t to love about Sevens Falls? The walk was a nice work out, paved road to walk on, the little trails off road to the river that flowed to the falls was a nice water stop for our little one, they let us bring her into the gift shop at the top so we could look and shop and we’re so nice and sweet, and the complimentary shuttle was nice because she was so tired at the end that she slept on the bus!
    10 out 1,000 would go back again in a heartbeat!!!

    Super dog friendly :)

    Love this activity! dogs are allowed on the shuttles and the trams and even the elevator to bring you to the lookout spot! we walked the .8 mile walk instead of taking the tram just because it was a beautiful and easy walk for the dog

    Wrong one sorry, thought this was rainbow falls

    Get there as soon as it opens to park right there without a walk or shuttle ride. Short walk to a water fall and small creek, can also take a little side trail for another dip option. 30 min max visit (per park) After a week of hiking my dogs loved this pit stop, wear your water shoes. Leashed dogs only (my preference anyway)

    Nice Little Hike, Steps Are Challenging

    The falls are worth a visit, but the steps are not particularly dog friendly as they are sort of ‘floating’. We had to carry our small dog up, which was a challenge! Nice easy hike at the top. Worth a visit, but I the stairs are not for all dogs.

    Dogs allowed on shuttle

    You park about 10 minutes away and the shuttle will bring you to the park. Dogs are allowed. They allowed dogs in the elevator to the Eagles Nest and on the tram from the ticket booth to the falls. Pay the $2/person for the tram if you're not physically fit. They provided water outside of the gift shop for dogs to drink.

    Dogs Loved It!

    We brought our two dogs to Seven Falls while vacationing in CO Springs in October 2019. It happened to snow while we were in town, but the dogs didn’t mind. You took a bus from the offsite parking (dogs on leashes were allowed) and then walked to the falls. You have the option to take an elevator to one viewing platform or climb open-slat stairs to ascend to an area above the falls. Our dogs were a little wary of the stairs, but conquered them well. Plan to spend about 2 hours from parking to and back.

    Good nature walk

    The walk up to Seven Falls is paved, but alongside the road is the creek/river. It was nice to walk up that section and get to see the nature part of the walk. Once you get to the falls, you can take your dog up the elevator to get a view, or you can take them up the stairs a little farther up. The stairs are high and there are a lot of them, so if your dog doesn't like stairs I would be careful. It was a great spot to visit with my dog, he loved it!!

    Good place to visit with dog

    Cost $10 per person to get in, you need to take the shuttle to get to the falls, they allow your pet on the shuttle as well. They have a tram that takes you to the top to see the falls, but we walked, it was not a bad walk, but it is all up hill. They have stairs you can take up to get closer to the falls, but we did not take them, do not appear to be dog friendly at all, we took the elevator and got to see the falls just fine, enjoyed the trip

    Nice

    I am originally from PA so I was excited when I heard about this place but if you've been to Bushkill Falls in PA this unfortunately doesn't compare. The park itself is very nice and is dog friendly but the stairs to the top of the falls are very steep and our pup had some trouble. The park has a shuttle for those that do not or cannot walk to the falls but it is an additional cost on top of the entrance fee unless you are a senior citizen. The restaurant on site is dog friendly as well and had pretty decent food and beer selection. All in all its a nice place but if you are looking to see some falls and don't want to spend the money check out Helen Hunt Falls in North Cheyenne Canon park which is close by. Not only can you see a beautiful fall but the park itself has a ton of trails ranging from easy to difficult.

    Wore them all out...

    This was a fun trip. It started snowing the day before we went and was still snowing while we were there. We had a bit of trouble getting them up the stairs. They don't have backs on them and one of my dogs kept trying to put her paws through the opening. She was nervous but we did make it all the way up. It's definitely a work out. We opted to walk back down the road instead of taking the shuttle. We all enjoyed it.

    Caution

    I'd like to start by saying that this visit was really fun for me and my dog. The trails up the mountain weren't too challenging, but just enough to make it fun. It was a great walk, took maybe 2 hours start to finish, and had many pretty overlooks.

    But my caution is this: The steps leading up to the mountain trail are very steep and made of a very slippery plasticky faux-wood material. My dog usually has zero problems with stairs, but he wouldn't even touch them. Me and my brother had to haul him up and down all 238 or so stairs. It was well worth it, but I'd be very disappointed if I had come all that distance just to be not be able to go up it.

    My dog was just 5 months old (and still 43 lbs!), so maybe older dogs might be more accepting of them. Again, he's had zero issue with stairs since he was like 11 weeks old, but he couldn't use them since they were too slippery for his paws.

    If you do get up there, it's a great walk. Just a word of warning. On the way out I warned the owner of a 110 lb chocolate lab. I'm not sure how he fared.
