“A wooded trail that follows North Cheyenne Creek with 7 wooden bridges as crossovers.”— K Keiter
Family Friendly Teens or boot families (experienced hikers) would really enjoy this trail to the 7 bridges and back. There are many way trails leading to the creek for great family photo ops.
7 Bridges Trail (#622) follows North Cheyenne Creek and crosses seven wooden bridges within the first mile. The trail offers nice wooded surroundings and rocky terrain that is moderate in difficulty. This is a heavily travelled path,, with both locals and tourists. There are many way paths venturing to the creek and chances for photo ops as the trail winds its way along the lively stream. At the seventh bridge, most foot traffic turns back and makes this an out and back hike, although 7 Bridges Trail continues on.
After the seventh bridge, follow the (#622) signpost, and the trail will begin to ascend over large rocks and small boulders. The route at this point requires some scrambling and increases to more advanced in difficulty. After about a 400 foot rise, the trail crosses a boulder field with deep scree. Sure footing is necessary as the trail is scanty and the sides are steep.
After about 0.5 mi, the trail reaches back into more timbered land and begins to slightly descend. Shortly, the trail will come to a junction with a connector path that leads to Jones Park Trail (#667) and with Pipeline Trail (#668). Pipeline Trail (#668) is part of Captain Jack's Trail System.
