Blodgett Peak is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Colorado Springs, Colorado and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and snowshoeing and is best used from May until September.
The views at the top are amazing, but this is definitely difficult, not moderate hike. We are hikers and I'm an ultra runner. Trails not very well marked at the top, even when following stacked rocks.
We hiked this trail as a family in August with a 7 and a 5 year old and chose it because it was rated as moderate and was relatively doable distance close to home. It turned out to be a 6 hour wondering partially due to weather delay but mostly because of how eroded and how poorly marked the trail is. There are multitude of run offs which makes it hard to follow the trail. Great views at the top and challenge are the rewards! Honestly this was harder for us than Stanley canyon that was rated hard.
Plenty of different trails to choose. Great with dogs.
Went up Blodgett Peak in a light snowstorm, didn't see much, but it was fun. Slippery, long stretches of steep gravel. Watch your footing.
The trails in the open space area below the Blodgett Peak Trail are great. However, the Blodgett Peak Trail itself is not well-maintained, difficult to find, and full of deep gravel that makes getting traction almost impossible.
Trails aren't well marked, but they all run into one another. It's a fun place to get lost.
