2. Seven Falls & Soaring Adventure

The only waterfall in Colorado to have earned a spot on National Geographic’s list of International Waterfalls, Seven Falls is truly a sight to behold.

Looking for an adventure, take the 224 steps alongside the falls that lead to hiking trails and the stream that feeds the falls!
