Comments: Come walk the Colorado Mountains IN THE CITY!! The trail is rated 2B due to altitude (over 6,000 feet above sea level) and a few hills. The trail is on dirt with gentle inclines (although one is about a kilometer in length). This is in one of the newest parks in Colorado Springs, and has views and rock formations that rival Garden of the Gods, with fewer people in your way. Restrooms at the Start/Finish and at the Open Space. If you are not accustomed to our altitude it will take you longer to complete our event.
