    8 Wheel Transit _ reviewed Shooks Run Trail

    over 2 years ago

    Fun trail; lots of variety; passes through a few parks with playgrounds; asphalt and concrete - width and surface conditions vary. There are a number of street crossings, but busier ones have traffic signals w/ pedestrian push buttons; a couple underpasses and overpasses; some small hills along the south half. One trailside cafe.

    8 Wheel Transit _ reviewed Rock Island Trail

    over 2 years ago

    The portion of the Rock Island Trail from Union to just west of Powers is primarily 10-12' concrete with the exception of the section from Circle to Academy (which is currently narrower asphalt with some large cracks - at least large enough to swallow up 80mm skate wheels). However, the good news is this section is planned to be upgraded to wide concrete this year. The Academy to Powers section is already five stars now in my opinion.

    This is a great trail with some nice rolling hills (primarily east of Academy). Also, this trail is an old rail corridor, so it has nice open-space with clear areas off the sides of the trail.

    The street-level crossing at the Academy/Constitution has a push button for the pedestrian signal to cross, but watch for those turning cars.

    Parking for trail access can be found on street at Jefferson Park or Wasson Park near Circle Drive or at the north end of Victor Place off Powers. From the Powers trailhead, there is a short section of gravel trail before the concrete starts.

    8 Wheel Transit _ reviewed Midland Trail (25th to Ridge Rd.)

    over 2 years ago

    This is part of the Midland Trail. Three separate sections of the overall Midland Trail have been completed (with gaps between these sections). However, travel between America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs and the Manitou Spring Pool is possible via marked detours. This particular section is very good with a wide concrete path beginning at 25th Street and ending at the intersection of Ridge Road and Colorado Avenue. There are numerous bridges and trail access with public parking is available at Vermijo Park. The other completed sections of the Midland Trail include Chestnut to 21st Street and Colombia Street at Manitou Avenue to the Creek Path which begins just east of Beckers Lane. The Creek Path is narrower concrete, but it provides a continuous connection west to the public pool in Manitou Springs.
