Beautiful views! Like a miniature bad lands in the middle of Colorado Springs

Love it because I can let my dog off leash in the back part. It's a great workout for both of us!

Not sure I have the trail names correct but any trail in this park is a treat.

It was a great hike today. A little snow on the north side which Tucker the dog just loved.

Very close to the house and a good place for a quick escape from stress.

Such a wonderful hike. I went in the evening time and it was wonderful, the trails are well kept and the view is awesome!

great trails for everyday hiking or when you need to stay close to the city. staying on path can be a bit tricky with all the junctions. just enjoy the walk and see where it takes you.

Very easy hike, be careful for bikers moving through, sometimes the turns make it hard to see until the last second. Great views and scenery.

Great little trail to run laps on. Not incredibly well marked, but a hell of a lot better than other trails in this park!

The hike itself was pretty but there was a part where I could not figure out where the trail went. I ended up on a different trail through the rocks and had to find my way back to this one. Overall good little hike with some pretty views.

This hike is gorgeous, one of my favourite to date. You see so much, it’s hard to describe it all. Overall, amazing.

This hike was actually pretty fun. Go far enough and you’ll get some really nice scenery and some great pictures. If you want, you can even get a bit of very low level climbing done as well!

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!

Beautiful at sunset

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.
