We're blessed with several dog parks in Colorado Springs, and each of them have locals who meet other dog lovers while their furry kids play. But for folks who want a little exercise while there furry kids run around, nothing beats the dog walk at the top of Palmer Park. You'll meet great dog lovers, get some exercise yourself, and...

We live very close to Palmer Park and go there often to walk. There are lots of hiking/biking/horseback trails in the park. We go to the one that allows dogs to go off-leash because there are almost no bikers and horse back riders there. Some of the trails are a bit rough, so if you don't have a lot of... More

I love hiking around in Palmer Park. It's a great place to get away from the city for a bit. There are lots of trails for a new hike each week.

There are a ton of trails here. We are going to come back a few more times to hike them all, but so far we are loving them! It's nice to have a perfect little hiking spot in the middle of town. Great views! So much fun. Dogs love it

What a great park! Drive past the popular playground and dog park and up to the overlook. Watch for the sign on the left because it faces the other way if you've entered at Maizeland. Drive to the small parking lot then walk to to overlook for a great view of the valley. We're new to the area and love... More

I love Palmer Park. It's an oasis right in the middle of the city. On the Ute Crest trail, pets are welcome to be off leash. What a fun experience it is to let your fur baby interact with other sweet dogs. The views at the very top are breathtaking.

Would not recommend visiting by yourself for safety reasons. You could fall easily on some parts of the park but if you're not a risk taker then maybe not so much. There are beautiful unobstructed views of the mountains and nature here. Great if you just was to get away to somewhere quiet.

Coming from the Midwest, we read the reviews (albeit briefly) and had expected more of a 'park', not a canyon hiking venue. It would be a favorite of mine if I lived in Springs! This has alot of hiking! And some moderately challenging. The most challenging portion is Finding/Navigating the trails. We were lost a few times; and had to... More
