This trail is really quite easy but so beautiful! Right in the heart of the city but you would never know it while you are on any of these trails.

Nice easy walk/hike in town. Good views of the town and not too busy, even on the weekend.

Great views! It's marked as difficult but it is rather easy. It's not always well marked. It's supposed to be 2.5 miles but it seems so much shorter. It's very rocky so be ready for that. You might miss some of the views because you're too busy looking at the ground watching out for rocks. There are so many great views though so checkout all the ledges. The parking lot is pretty small but there is roadside parking just before the park entrance. There is also a bathroom building but I didn't check it out so I'm not sure if they're functioning. Overall, I would highly recommend!

Beautiful area. As others have mentioned, trail is rated as difficult but intermediate is probably a better rating.

This is a really cool loop trail. Really fun for kids. Great views of Pikes Peak! Not very difficult but not well marked in all places. We always start the loop going to the left.

Nice trail. It's rated at the site as advanced difficult. I think maybe intermediate is more appropriate. It's not long, but it was fun.

This trail is part of the extensive Palmer Park trails. This trail is rated Advanced/difficult. I found it to be a nice 30 min up and down hike. Great views at the top of the hill. To find trail head, start at south entrance and drive all the way until you see the gates of the north entrance. There is a parking lot to your right. The trail starts right begins the bathrooms.
