So many improvements to this trail since my return to the springs - terrific! Nice concrete stretches for inline skating. It was nice to see families out riding to celebrate fathers day. The trail could use some education signs - came upon a few times groups of people stopped on the trail blocking both directions or riding on the left side around curves. I didn't see any maps until Came to Cottonwood trail connection. Lovely trail! Yeah, Colorado Springs!

i love this trail. i'm training for marathons and this is perfect for my long runs. i love that it's very shaded and runs along the creek. there are some open areas throughout the trail but it's not too bad as soon you'll find yourself in some shade again.

there is heavy bicycle traffic and some riders aren't as courteous as others, so watch out for them. i only wear one ear bud so i can be vigilant of my surroundings (transients, etc.) and can hear people coming up behind me.

Great trail. Most of it was paved, but plenty was crushed rock and thus not exactly road bike quality. Very easy, mostly flat. Great views of the mountains, and got to ride by several small parks I didn't even know were there.

The Pikes Peak Greenway is probably the most significant trail in the Colorado Springs urban trail system. It generally runs north/south along Interstate 25 and Monument Creek (and Fountain creek south of the confluence of the two creeks). Many other trails connect to the "Greenway" and there are numerous parks along the route. The trail has gravel, asphalt and concrete segments. Be advised, some segments of this trail are temporarily closed for various reasons. Given its importance, there are big plans in the works for the Greenway. Currently, one good route exists for inline skaters. See tracks tab for details.
