Your best photo op views of Pike's Peak are here! Some lovely in-town trails that feel like the middle of the mountains! Although the park is popular--particularly at lunch time, weekends, and all summer--finding it is worth it! A local gem!

Very nice area to hike near town. Road leads to the top of the hill so you can overlook the area. Many parking areas and hiking trails.

The hiking is great. The views are amazing. It is a beautiful park with something for everyone: a playground, climbing, hiking, horse riding, dog walking. I love it and so does my family.
