Nice short hike. Good spring hike. Would not want to do it in the heat of the summer, no shade. If you map quest it, make sure you use Pawnee Buttes, not Pawnee National Grasslands.

This was an amazing hike. I walk this park all the time and have hiked parts of Templeton Trail on a daily bases. I have never taken the entire trail at one time. If you are looking for a good work out and awesome views at the same time then this is the trail for you. Did I say it is in the middle of Colorado Springs? Yes, it is. You would never know on most of the trail. When you come to the Austin Bluffs side of the hike you all of a sudden realize with amazement that you are really in the City. I did Pan Cake Rocks last weekend and I must say this hike was almost as much of a challenge. Well not really. Lots of up and down but very easy to manage. This weekend the snow from Friday was melting and made the trail very muddy. I give this trail a 5 out of 5. Thank you General Palmer for giving us this park.

Great trail with spectacular views. I would suggest going up early. As we were coming the down, the trail was packed with college aged kids coming up. Some whom were very rude.
