This 3,000-acre open space boasts 10 miles of trails mostly in open meadows, with views of Pikes Peak to the southwest and Spruce Mountain to the west. The Greenland Trail is part of the Front Range Trail, and connects south to the Santa Fe Trail and to the Spruce Mountain Trail to the west. Follow the trail south to the second junction, and turn right to head east (uphill). After several switchbacks, the trail turns north to run nearly parallel to the outbound trail. An equal amount of ascending and descending makes this an enjoyable loop. The route can be extended to the south to the town of Palmer Lake and points farther south.
Best Trail Runs: Denver, Boulder, & Colorado Springs
