Heard about this one accidentally from a helpful waitress, ended being an amazing place. Even with the rain it was worth driving up there for the breathtaking views.

We drove up to the top of Palmer Park and enjoyed the breathtaking view of Pikes Peak while enjoying some take out recently. While the parking areas leave something to be desired, you can't beat the views. If you want to have a panoramic view of Pikes Peak and the mountain range then this is one place you should take...

This is a great park to run in. There is quiet a variet of terrain with lots of hills. Very nice to get away from the craziness of the city. Be alert as often times kids come into the park and drive way too fast. So keep you eyes peeled when you approach and roads. There is also a nice... More

A little disappointed that there was no map of the trails available and the some of the trails don't seem well marked or that well maintained.

I had scheduled this visit early one morning in June 2016, to see the beautiful scenery described in tour books. Arrived to find Main road blocked off. Aide stated only access was by walking 5 miles beyond parking area. Very disappointing.

We love this park! It's easily accessible. There's a playground for the kidlets and a volleyball/badminton area. Lots of trails. It's a definite must-visit.

We visit Palmer Park often just to hike around and let the kids play. Lots of rocks, trails, open grassy areas, trees, and sports fields make this a preferred stop to just have fun.

We've done this hike with Scouts and I am amazed that such a park can still exist in the middle of a city. Lots of great lookout spots. Be sure to keep track of your little ones though, because there are some areas of the trail where one could have a dangerous fall. Great, quick hike if you don't have... More
