Great trails and an amazing view of Colorado Springs and pikes peak.
Easy to get to and lots of parking areas throughout the park.

This is a beautiful park right in the middle of the city. There is one lookout point where you can see the city views, but for the most part it's just pristine natural landscape. There is some excellent hiking and biking here and plenty of wildlife, especially at dusk. Nice picnic areas, restrooms and a few pavilions. Also there is a dog park and nice big playground near the East entrance.

We were fortunate to have our family take us to this hidden treasure...
An amazingly beautiful part of Colorado springs. Hike, bike enjoy the vistas.

This park has a large area at the top of a hill which is an off-leash hiking area for people with dogs. It also provides excellent views and the mountains and the city.

Great open area with amazing views. At the south end of the park are a well over a mile of posted "leash free" dog walking trails. The people and dogs are generally very friendly. It's a great resource.
