CLOSED to the public due to the Waldo Canyon fire. Waldo Canyon Loop Trail is a 7 mile loop trail located about 5 miles west of Manitou Springs, Colorado, with a trailhead and large paved parking lot. Waldo Canyon Loop trail is a scenic trail. The first part is a single track trail for about 1.75 miles, then it begins about a 3.7 mile loop with some great views of Pikes Peak. It is not too challenging for children.

Great route, used to run this weekly years ago (or hiked) the fire closed it off, but worth it to see any of the trail.

Closed due to the fire two years ago, but an okay hike. The first 1/2 mile is a decent work out.

Was lucky enough to do this before the fire. A wonderful walk with some nice views. Hope it reopens soon.

Hiked Waldo Canyon the weekend before the forest fire started. In fact, my current profile picture was taken the winter before. I hope they open it back up someday.

Awesome trail and was fortunate to hike it two years in 2011 before the fire. One of my favorites and has a great variety of terrain.

It breaks my heart to drive past the parking lot these days. I have done this trail numerous times over the years and my dog and I were fortunate enough to have done it a couple times this spring. It will be a long recovery for this area, but looking forward to the re-growth. Has always been a favorite of mine.

Due to the recent Waldo Canyon Fire, this trail is closed. Hopefully the citizens of the Springs will have the opportunity to rebuild it soon. It was a great hike.

sad to say this is burned, but it was a nice challenging trail. I look forward to doing it again as it grows back. I have before and after pictures on facebook.
