Amy B. on Greenland Trail
Very pretty and peaceful
The trail is ok for the equine riders, but there are a lot of bikers / runners that take up quite a bit of trail. I like the warm up pen and obstacle course they have built. If you want to work on the hill work and riding there are a lot of good opportunities to do that here.
Coyotes are very cheeky. Do watch your back.... I've been challenged and followed by coyotes on the Kipps Trail section.
P.S. A bit of history: Edward Kipps was an immigrant from England. He (and his wife Louisa) naturalized when he was 27, one year before he died. He was a leather craftsman/merchant in Palmer Lake.
This whole area was a cemetery for Palmer Lake until the 1920's when the 'residents' were 'relocated' to the Monument Cemetery. This is one of the remaining burial sites.
