HISTORY...  In 1881 the Bruin Inn was built at the base of Helen Hunt Falls. An out building of the Bruin Inn was turned into a visitor center and curio shop. Being the smaller of the two facilities it became known as "The Cub." The Cub survived the fire that destroyed the Bruin Inn. "The Cub" remained to serve as a visitor center by the falls, which were officially, designated Helen Hunt Falls in 1966.

BIG NEWS… The beautiful new “Cub” is now complete. Over the years the old Cub building had deteriorated badly. In 2012 the old Cub building was torn down and a new Cub built – new, but very similar in design and atmosphere to the old Cub. The grand opening was held on Sept. 8, 2012. The Cub will be open for the 2014 summer season Saturday, May 24 – Monday, September 1

Fund-raising efforts by the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon, donations from generous community members, and help from many business sponsors have made building the new Cub possible. For the past several years, Bristol Brewing Company has donated all the profits from the sale of Cheyenne Cañon Pinon Ale to this project. Fund-raising continues for additional displays and furnishings for inside the Cub.
