There is also a lookout on the opposite side; I have heard nowadays the park charges admission for this as well. Of course, there are gift shops at the base of the falls; however, they just sell the normal tourist junk. When I visited, there was also a live performance by Native Americans who dress in their tribal wear and dance around. Really rather neat, plus, if you arrive early (like we did), it fills the time between when you arrive and showtime. All in all, this is a great stop for families and other groups alike to just sit, relax, and enjoy the falls after a long day touring the region.

You will get to see all "seven falls" flowing in seven distinct steps down a solid cliff of Pike's Peak granite. Forewarning: For an easier trip, take the elevator, which is located inside the mountain. You will be able to get a gorgeous view of the falls from Eagle's Nest. For the more adventurous types out there, there are steps . . . tons of steps!! You can attempt to climb these steps one by one, but let me assure you, you'll be gasping for breath before you even reach the first small landing. It's that steep. If you're like us, you'll take many breaks in between those many steps. But if you're determined (like we were), you will finally reach your destination at the very top of the steps. And what a view!!
There's also a new nature trail to Midnight Falls that goes beyond Inspiration Point. You will enjoy a wonderful view of the city and the great plains.
If you aren't so adventurous and prefer to stay at the bottom (which I wouldn't blame you for one bit), then Seven Falls has gift shops and a snack bar.
My family and I have been here twice and really love it. The one thing we have not done is see the falls at night. I've heard the views are truly beautiful. I guess this means we'll have to go back there again. Darn the luck, huh?

This was a fun place to visit. There was a wait to get into the gate as there is limited parking available. Our visit was in the evening and we stayed until just after dusk so that we could view the falls with the colored lights that they turn on at dusk.
