Starting on the wide dirt and gravel path, head east across the paved road to connect with the doubletrack trail on the other side of the road. Dip down across a footbridge to head south, then east through a wooded area. Cross over a second footbridge before emerging from the woods to the open meadows in the park. Follow the outer trail east for a wide sweeping perimeter loop on a primarily wide, smooth path with rolling hills, as well as a long ascent to the high point on the south side of the park. The views—the foothills of Pikes Peak and the city of Colorado Springs among them—are worth the climb, and the long descent along the west side of the park is equally enjoyable.
