This is a great place to hike in Colorado Springs. There are short or long hikes and steep or flattish hikes. Something for everyone at every level. Plus, there is oodles of parking and it's free.

We walked around in the afternoon through sunset, taking easy and more difficult trails. It's a very clean, well maintained park. Good parking. Friendly hikers and bikers.

Hi Jothish G, I'd say 5 to 6 hours tops with stopping in between, visiting the visitor Centre and stopping for some lunch. Hope this helps you. Regards.
