Blodgett Peak is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Colorado Springs, Colorado and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and snowshoeing and is best used from May until September.
Easy access until the base of mountain. The trail is poorly marked and I got turned around 3x. Trail is not marked at all, or even visible from the base of the mountain. Its steep, mostly inches of loose gravel, huge boulder fields and slow to trace any resemblance of a trail. Solo hike and sneakers not recommended.
Great trail. Lots of nice view.
HARD steep far from easy GREAT HIKE
Did this trail in January... was very icy and slippery. Difficult hike but great views from the top.
The views at the top are amazing, but this is definitely difficult, not moderate hike. We are hikers and I'm an ultra runner. Trails not very well marked at the top, even when following stacked rocks.
We hiked this trail as a family in August with a 7 and a 5 year old and chose it because it was rated as moderate and was relatively doable distance close to home. It turned out to be a 6 hour wondering partially due to weather delay but mostly because of how eroded and how poorly marked the trail is. There are multitude of run offs which makes it hard to follow the trail. Great views at the top and challenge are the rewards! Honestly this was harder for us than Stanley canyon that was rated hard.
Plenty of different trails to choose. Great with dogs.
