I like to hike in this park. When I first started hiking there it was me and my puppy. Now, fifteen years later, I have a family with young kids and a new dog :) There is a cool playground for kids, a dog park, mountain biking, hiking, yoga in the park, sightseeing, and occasional events. It's in the heart... More

It is an awesome place to hike to right in the middle of the city. You can get away from it all in a few minutes! Love!

There is little to but off-road fat tire bike, or view the city from a high vantage point. You time may be better spent at the Air Force Academy.

If you mountain bike don't miss this one. Hosted 24 hours of Colorado MB race twice. Nice open areas, dog park, trails, rocks for kids to scramble on. Free as are all city parks. You won't believe you are in the middle of the city.

Even though it's on the other side of town, don't miss the chance to see this park! Great trails and rock formations, easily accessible and family friendly!

Our "Springs" friends took us on a tour, stopping frequently to look out over the city. There was rain in the mountains, at dusk, which made for some amazing scenes. This is a wonderful place for all to experience, biking, hiking, meditating.

I visited this park several times while I was in Colorado Springs and loved the accessibility and beautiful scenery. This park has many trails for hiking and mountain biking as well as some really great picnic spots. There's also a nice enclosed dog park!
