Great hiking trails for all skill levels. The park topography consists of a mesa with finger-like extensions dotted with pine and scrub. Great views of the city and miles of trails!

    Over 25 miles of trails, serving, hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and equestrians, with trails for all levels of experience, right in the middle of the city! Also a softball field, a dog park, and several picnic areas and trailheads/parking spots. It's just a really fun place to spend the day. Too bad you can't camp here!

    A nice getaway right in the middle of Colorado Springs! There is a dog-of-leash section with a maze of trails and bags available at the trailhead. Great views of the city. A nice place to get some mountain biking practice. It can get brutally hot in the summer. Bring water!

    Excellent area in the middle of town. Can be accessed from multiple points, allowing for different hikes on a regular basis. Great for hiking when you cannot be gone all day. Despite being in the middle of the city there is still a wildlife population.

    When I lived in Colorado Springs, this was my favorite in-town park. Lots of bikers, hikers, runners, and dogs on the trails. Well marked with difficulty ratings, the most difficult trails were rocky and technical but worth the effort. Never got tired of the trails here!
