Location:

Located at 4075 N. Cheyenne Canyon Rd. in Colorado Springs, CO

History:

North Cheyenne Canyon is one of the oldest parks in Colorado Springs on account of the efforts of Helen Hunt Jackson.

"The Cub", also known as the Helen Hunt Visitor’s Center was once the Bruin Inn is a tourist attraction and landmark. This building was constructed in 1881.

Helen Hunt Jackson was an author and Native American rights activist. She died of cancer in California, but the falls just below Silver Falls were named after her.

Haunting:

Along Gold Camp Road, purportedly one can find Helen Hunt’s grave. In the tunnels near this area, Shadowlands reporters claim that unexplained handprints will show up on cars that drive through these tunnels. Disembodied voices are supposedly reported here as well.

Observations:

There are abundant warnings to visitors who try to get a little too interactive with Helen Hunt Falls. The water is powerful and people get killed trying to get too close to the falls. The Shadowlands index report makes note of the fact that, "On the average of 5 people die around the Gold Camp area each year," which likely has to do with ignorant tourist behaviors and not with paranormal activities, per se.
