Great place for a hike. It has become progressively busier over the past few years, but if you get out early you will miss the crowds. It is one of my favorite places. They have everything from extremely easy to difficult options for walks/hikes.

Located at the entrance to the park, Starsmore Discovery Center is an excellent visitor center with interesting activities, displays and helpful informative staff.

This is a great area to hike around. There are massive rock formations and even some boulders. I saw chalk on some, so some people must climb out here. It's a pretty easy drive even in a compact car. Definitely worth the trip.

Everybody plans on completing the grueling "Incline" in Manitou Springs (C/S). Yes, the Incline is a must do, but plan on crowds. If you prefer sunrise without a crowd, take a nice stroll, jog or run around some of the many trails offered in this free and beautiful location. Numerous vistas, especially good for sunrise.

Another place you think you are 100 miles away...but it is a City Park right outside the community. 10 minute drive and you are in the mountains along a nice stream. Lots of places to hike and picnic.

There are beautiful trails here as far back into Colorado as you care to go. Have a care - watch your back trail to get back home. These are beautiful multi-use (cycle, dirt bike, hikers, runners) trails of several lengths. All are fun with great views, good surfaces.

Great trails that parallel the creek. Watch out for the Middle Columbine trail though its a killer but well worth the energy to get up tot he top.

One of the easier hikes for young and old. The view of Helen Hunt Falls at the base may be enough to make the easy drive but if you wander up the trail 30 - 40 minutes you will be glad you did.
