Pick your mode of travel, there's room and terrain for all. There's not a lot of vertical to be had, but it's location in town cannot be beat. You can get your lungs and heart working however, and there's great mountain biking for all levels. One of Colorado Springs' best assets.

took a ride from the hotel for a quick ride. GPS took me right to the trail head. Easy, intermediate, and advanced trails. Signage okay, but I did get turned around a few times.

This park is wonderfully located in the middle of busy Colorado Springs. It provides a refuge to nature without driving far at all. The trails are endless and great for hiking, mountain biking, or walking your dog. Picnic tables provide great opportunities to enjoy lunch or dinner while overlooking the city and beautiful Pike's Peak with Garden of the Gods' red rocks at the base. You can drive up to the top overlook, taking a left at the fork in the road from the main entrance, or hike to see the views. After living in Colorado Springs 7 years, this is my favorite park in the city!

Get away from the city within the city. Nice views to be had, to be sure, but wending your way along one of the park's many hiking trails or simply having a relaxing picnic in the woods can be quite relaxing. A great spot for kids, too, with some very inviting playground equipment. Nice for large family gatherings.
