Falcon Trail is a 13.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near U S A F Academy, Colorado that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until September.
Best all around trail in the area, if you live in the Springs area, this trail should be done at least once a month. If you are traveling through then Falcon should be on your to do list. Great climbs and super flowy descents. Trail is very well maintained and is usable pretty much the entire year weather permitting.
Nice day hike!
Trail was very rocky. I would say they is a medium trail. As a beginner at mountain biking I found it very difficult.
Fabulous day to hike this trail! The Air Force Thunderbirds (F16 fighters) were practicing overhead for the graduation air show in a couple of days so gorgeous trails, scenery and jets screaming by was awesome!! Moderate trail, easy to follow, beautiful forest areas, meadows, small creeks, etc. Will definitely do this one again!
On the advice of a friend rode counter - clockwise on Sun 26 Jul. Great ride but definitely a challenge. Trail is well marked. I started at the start/finish defined on alltrails but met several other riders starting from other trail heads. One commented she wanted to go ahead and get the long climb encountered on the clockwise route done early in the ride, this was probably around Pine Rd.
Great trail!! It has a little bit of everything. I wish it was not 15 hours away from my house so I could ride it every weekend. I got winded easily due to the altitude but I still had a blast!!!
