7Falls-2The Broadmoor announced Friday it will buy the Seven Falls attraction, known as “Colorado’s Grandest Mile of Scenery,” located in Colorado Springs. The purchase includes the falls, the surrounding canyon, and 1,300 acres of adjoining property from the Hill Family.

“The Hill family is pleased to have Seven Falls in the hands of The Broadmoor and [its owner] Phil Anschutz. We know the stewardship of Seven Falls which we have had for 68 years will continue with them,” said Lyda Hill, Seven Falls owner and president.

Seven Falls features a natural box canyon, into which 181 feet of falls tumble. Next to the Falls, a 224-step stairway leads to a system of trails that take visitors to Midnight Falls and then onto Inspiration Point with a view of Colorado Springs and the great plains to the east.

“Seven Falls is a legendary Colorado attraction that has stood the test of time thanks to the quality ownership of the Hill family for 68 years,” said Steve Bartolin, president and CEO of The Broadmoor. “We look forward to continuing the Hill’s legacy in the decades to come.”

Seven Falls is located one mile from The Broadmoor main campus. Seven Falls will undergo extensive repairs from last year’s flood damage and a grand re-opening is expected to take place in spring 2015, The Broadmoor said in a news release.

Seven Falls joins The Broadmoor’s growing portfolio of Colorado’s leading historical attractions and properties, including the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, The Ranch at Emerald Valley, Cloud Camp and The Broadmoor Fishing Camp.
