I had a couple of hours before sunset, which was not enough time to go somewhere more remote for hiking, so I thought I was settling for something close. Boy was I wrong. You could easily get lost here. I went straight up the mesa trail and in 30 minutes I felt like I was somewhere far away. There are... More

When I lived here I spent a lot of time either hiking or biking here. It is a neat place to go and get outdoors for a day.

This neat open space is near the Colorado Springs downtown area. Easy to park and just walk around for a bit. You don't even realize you're right by the city. Really great views and non-strenuous walking trails

Beautiful Park, but had my purse stolen from our vehicle. We locked the door but then found it broken so someone must have jimmed the lock open. I even saw a shady looking guy lurking around the parking lot when we first pulled in so I should have known better. It's too easy for someone to see you walk up... More

Red Rock Canyon Open Space offers trails for all levels of hikers. I hiked three trails and really enjoyed myself. I walked by three deer eating which was pretty cool. They were beautiful. The hikes vary from easy to moderate and somewhat strenuous. I would say many of the trails are very family friendly. Dogs are welcome as well as... More

took my dogs to wander the trails on a nice fall day. Scenery is beautiful, trails are good and not real crowded. Best of all you can bring your pets with you to enjoy the outdoors.
