A hidden gem in the downtown Colorado Springs area. The park is a network of many small trails, with the highlight being the climb to the Pulpit Rock ridge line. The top provides beautiful views of the Rockies. The climb is of moderate difficulty, with the perimeter trails being an easy walk.

There's no defined trails once you're on the rock itself. It's basically like scaling a castle it's so cool. There's no barriers or closing times either. I've gone dozens of times. It's free and it feels free to be up there. It's one of my favorite places in all Colorado Springs.

Thought this place was pretty awesome. Noticed it driving by on the freeway and walked it. Cool little area and fun rock formation to scramble with great views.

Hiked this with my 4-yr old daughter. Easy hike with a view well worth the level of effort required.

Just make sure you check the trail map as you go. There are many other trails that cross that will get you lost.

Saw many lizards and garden snakes but no rattlesnakes. Doesn't mean they aren't there though.

Great view. I hike mostly at higher elevation in dense vegetation for the views, but for being close to home, great short morning hike.
