Colorado Springs, Colorado Map

Great hike. Counter clockwise makes for an good heart rate increasing climb with a gentle 4 mile cool down.

2.14.18 - Super windy! so far, this was my favorite trail out of all that I've done! However, if you follow this loop to the T, I feel it is more on the moderate side of easy, and not just to climb Pulpit Rock. It may not have massive elevation gains, but the trails are narrow, rocky, and trenched. Looks like a ton of fun for mountain bikers!!

I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because there are (what feels like) 300 different and unmarked trails that intersect and converge over one another. I accidentally went off the indicated trail loop twice and only finished by having my All Trails gps map in my hand at all times... takes away from the enjoyment. That being said, this loop gives you a little of everything: Creeks, canyons, bluffs, rock climbing, open prairie, etc. Would definitely do this one again, even with all the issues. Beautiful!!

2.13.18 - beautiful views! slushy from recent snowfall, but serene and very easy trail to follow (the orange cone is still there, indicating the May's Peak trail). Panoramic views and definitely a fantastic workout; steep right before the summit!

Great trail! When you get to the peak of the mountain and still have strength, you’ve got the trail up to Mount Muscoco if you turn left at the fork instead of right. There is also a cave-like opening about half way up the trail to Cutler, it only goes about 4 feet in but it’s still a good place to take a photo.

Great for dogs!

family friendly and offers great views of Colorado Springs.

there's a lookout with a rock wall where they have park benches to enjoy the view. During the winter months you can see people ice climbing up the falls.

lots of stairs but great views of the falls. Easy trail for families

great trail for beginners or families. branches off into other trails after the bridges.

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

I was confused about whether the trail itself was 6 miles or whether it was 6 miles round trip from the parking lot (you walk for quite a ways on a dirt road before getting to the actual trail). Now, having done the hike, I can confirm that it's the latter. Hope this helps anyone else who is wondering!

This is a beautiful well maintained trail; however, thieves smashed my 4Runner’s window and stole whatever wasn’t bolted down in my car, along with several other vehicles in the area. The local police did not investigate or follow-up on my complaint.

Hiked on 12/20. Amazing hike up North Cheyenne Canon with a few friends and dogs. Moderate hike. The numerous stream crossings were really cool. Skirted up the side of Keneo after the last bridge for a fantastic view out over the canyon. Thought about continuing up Mt. Keneo proper, but the altitude was starting to get to this Jersey boy

Great downhill section. The last 1/3rd of the loop is shut down, but there’s an alternate route that is a little longer.

A great area to explore that is close to Colo Springs. There are many trails that weave in and out of each other and many social trails as well. There is a gentle incline if you follow the trails to the south end of the park that provide some very nice views. the trails are well maintained and wide for the most park. It can get crowded so plan accordingly with regards to parking.

You can only access this from Rampart Range road. I moved before I go the chance. :( it’s the only legal way after the fire. If anyone goes and see it please share with me :) thanks

Good trail. I went after a cold snow the day before and the creek was frozen over, and it was beautiful. It sucks that you can’t have dogs though.

What a fun trail. The wife and I attempted to loop yesterday. Either way you go you will have to turn around. Frozen section that is too sketchy to cross. But in that frozen section is a gem to see. Someone attempted it and did not fair too well. The trail was quite fun and with snow and ice in certain areas it made for fun and challenging! Def need some clearance for certain spots but overall take it slow and you should be good

great walk with the dogs. They are now napping soundly
