The is the ultimate Colorado Springs running trail, swarming with dozens of runners on weekends. Be prepared to see upwards of a hundred runners during summer weekends. However, because of the high daytime temperatures on the bottom half of the trail, the parking lot is likely to be full by 6 a.m., so either show up early or be prepared to park further down the road.
Grade: The trail has an average ten degree angle of ascent for over six miles, with most of the pain in the first three miles, where the gradient is 14 degrees.
