Good hike, a few hard spots, beautiful views.

awesome hike!

love this park! great trails in my backyard!

Great trail, easy hike and nice view, very good for everyday exercise

Easy hike with kids (ages 4-7), fun rock formations for them to check out, lots of folks with dogs out and about.

Great trail for a relatively easy hike.

Great hike, fun for me and my friends as well as my kid.. 4 yrs old had a great time!

Decent hike with good views of interesting rocks. The trail is hard to follow in some spots and many other trails cross this one. Having this app to keep us on track was very helpful. This trail is in the middle of Colorado Springs, and traffic noise detracted from our enjoyment along the northeastern portion of the trail.

Trails were pretty washed out. Ended up losing the trail many times. Despite that it was a beautiful hike.

Other reviewers have mentioned trash; I didn’t notice a problem. I love any hike that has you clambering over rocks!

This trail was amazing. Challenging just enough. Definitely very unmarked and I had to use the app map a bunch. But my dog and I will definitely be back.

Not too hard not too easy. Lots of incline. Dog friendly. Lots of bikes moving very fast so be careful.

nice trail but you definitely need the map to know which way to go at the many forks

It’s an ok trail. The rock formations are very nice, but lose their charm over time. Path is very rocky and slippery at times. Ended up on the Edna Nature Trail which was confusing. The walk is also accompanied by the lovely smell of horse manure from the stable nearby. The closeness to the Springs is nice, but much prettier trails within distance imo.

Not an flat easy trail like some hiking apps say it is. Some uphill climbing. Part of this trail is in the trees and parts are hiking over a rocky trail. Easy enough for kids and my pup. But hard enough to make them work a bit. I’d consider it a moderate trail in places. Great place to let everyone explore and work off some energy.

Lovely trail to do as the yucca are blooming, which is roughly now and will continue into mid June I would say. Great views of the front range, pikes peak of course, and Colorado Springs in general. You can also see iconic Garden of the Gods park from here and from a unique vantage point. It is a great walk for all skill levels and has a nice, wide, level path - however it can be windy at times since it is so exposed. Definitely wear sunscreen and a hat or sunglasses.

loved this place until it got trashy.

Very nice hike, it is a little longer than stated, but lots to see and many places to sit, rest, and take in the views.

So hard to figure out what trails are the outer loop. Went to trail run and instead of stopping and pulling out my phone every time there was a fork just kind of winged it. Only ended up with 5.5 Miles though.

A bit confusing at times but I used the app as our trail map. My kids loved it and we will back!

This is close to our house and is rugged enough to be a good workout, but not brutal. Lots of very interesting rock formations. Can be very muddy in spots after snow or rain.

Random trails everywhere. Some litter. Kinda sketchy in some places.

Great views, not too challenging. Second hike since moving to Springs and it was perfect for adjusting to the altitude!!

Great family trail. There is a lot you can learn about COS in the views from Palmer Park.
