Cheyenne Mtn. State Park Loop is a 4.1 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Colorado Springs, CO that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Great trail system for all ability levels of riders and hikers/runner. There are several trails in the system that can be combined for a very decent ride. fast flowing trails with gradual climbs. This system is great for beginners, those that are experienced will be able to push hard and make it what they want out of it. Be wary of wildlife, there have been several sightings of mountain lions in the area. The visitor center is the best place to check in to see the recent activity. Also you will either need a daily pass which is $7 or a yearly pass that is $70. there is one loop hole, as long as you park outside of the park and ride you bike or walk in, you do not have to pay. Best parking for this is right outside Fort Carson's Gate 1.
Lots of options here. Great for a quick hike or longer part of day. Great proximity for local hiking. Love the plaques with description of flora, learned a lot by stopping and reading.
nice state park campground. Stayed their one night enroute further west.
Nice for a short easy walk. Close to the interstate and easy to get to.
Only rode part of this system today, but if the rest of the trails are like the ones I rode, then it's gonna be great. Do watch for horse traffic. That sucks, but it is what it is.
Trails are marked and well maintained. Great place to take the kids for easy hikes. Not my favorite park though. Kind of hard to feel like you are really out of the city.
We took the Talons trail and a bit of Sundance. Very hot and mostly in the sun. Trails were easy to follow with good markers. Some pretty views looking east, but there are prettier areas
Pretty decent place for a day hike. Lots of trails for the casual hiker or anyone who's looking to go do the some "Relaxed" camping.
The trails here are VERY well marked. This is a great place to go hiking when you are wanting little elevation gain. We went on a day the weather had the potential of turning bad and got in a great several hour hike by taking shorter trails to get to longer trails. Not very difficult at all, but a nice hike for a mellower day.
Lots of day hikes available at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Early morning hikes, or late afternoon hikes are the best if you need to beat the heat. Great opportunities to see wildlife and wild flowers. North and South Talon are a favorite.
Very good day trip trails, both for the beginner and experienced hiker.
My first mountain bike ride was on this trail. Great beginner ride.
The trail is in great shape, but will probably be much better in the fall or winter. It has trees around it, but it was VERY hot and there was not much breeze. It is good for seeing wildflowers and for little ones to walk.
