This park has some challenging trails and something for all skill and fitness levels. Not as much tree cover as in mountains but has some interesting rocks that are fun to think about and climb on. As expected with a park in the city, there is some litter and occasional broken glass. Big park with lots of places to picnic... More

This is a great park to visit for hiking, picnicing, bringing the kids for a place to run and play Several places to park and have a scenic overview of Colorado Springs. This park does have a history of car break-ins so don't leave valuables in your vehicle and make certain it is locked if you go on a walk/hike.

This place has a nice dog park, great places to park and walk/hike, and is a pleasant drive-thru with a view of the Springs.

Lovely views and lots of walking/hiking trails right in the city! It feels a little run-down but the campsites/picnic areas were clean.

Park for kids, restrooms, and plenty of trails that have views of the mountains and parts of Colorado springs. Not a lot of shade on trails, but good for hiking, walking, running, biking.

I have not been there for several years, the date choices did not allow me to pick a date other than the Aug. 14 Nice for kids, they loved to climb on the rocks. The big drawback was the rattlesnakes who also loved the rocks.

This place is so cool to drive through. It's like going up into the mountains without going all the way up into the mountains. There are so many places to stop off and hike or climb. Dog park, picnic tables, awesome views. Worth the trip for sure.

I personally like to go just for the views. Many people take their dogs (please,please keep them leashed) with them. My son visited us recently and he likes birding. He and my husband hiked some trails and also found some birds. They enjoyed it quite a bit..There is a dog park, for those interested. We have also picnicked there overlooking... More

We went Spring Break 2014 when the kids were out of school. Interesting about local history and it was free. A nice bit of entertainment to keep the kids busy for a few hours. I hope we can go back again.
