I loved Talon trail but I think Sundance is just a waste of time.

Easy and great chance to see deer nearby. Never feel like lost because beautiful view of Colorado Springs is just at east of you all the times.

Lots of options here. Great for a quick hike or longer part of day. Great proximity for local hiking. Love the plaques with description of flora, learned a lot by stopping and reading.

Our first hike in Cheyenne Mountain State Park. We start in Talon (from parking lot) then took ZookLoop into Blackmer Loop. We took Medicine Wheel into Zook Loop to finish at 5 miles total.
A little lonely trail in Blackmer but it was good. A great park with multiple trails to choose. We will do Cheyenne Mountain State Park again.

Great trail system in Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Well marked and many trails to choose. My wife and I went last Sunday for the first time and we decided on Blackmer Loop after talking to one of the park employees. We started in Talon, then Zook Loop until we find Blackmer Loop. We took Medicine Wheel back to Zook Loop and end up in the parking lot by Talon. 5 miles total with moderate, well maintain and marked trails. It was a little lonely in Blackmer Loop but we enjoyed it.
Most definitely we will be back!

Nice trails and not too busy even in the weekend when I was here. Very clearly marked and multiple map signs along the trails to keep from getting lost.

Nice hike with great views. Shady spots. Can be muddy after rain and snow has melted. Great hike during the winter but need microspikes or yaktrax.

Nice hike.
