Pueblo Mountain Park Trail

Pueblo Mountain Park Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Pueblo Mountain Park is a small haven residing right between the city of Pueblo and the Sangre de Cristo Range. Home to 611 acres of land in the Wet Mountains, the park offers more than 6 miles of trails exploring this wonderfully rich and diverse area. This hike takes us past a rushing creek, onto open hillocks covered with cacti, yucca, ponderosa, and juniper, and deep into moist valleys of fir trees and wildflowers.

The trail also summits a high lookout atop a rocky overlook granting views of the nearby town of Beulah and out to the eastern plains of southern Colorado. The hike isn’t complete, however, without a stop at the Mountain Park Environmental Center near the entrance of the park. The MPEC’s friendly staff offer a number of educational activities, including guided interpretive hikes, school programs, summer nature camps, and a variety of nature workshops and lectures. Be sure to check it out!"

Pueblo Mountain Park is a great place to hike if you live in the area and are looking for some easier, but beautiful trails that don’t take very long. We used to take the kids hiking here and I still take my wife as she isn’t a hard core hiker. The views are very nice and there are some nice wildflowers and wildlife. I haven’t done the loop exactly described in the guide as we usually do either the Mace Trail or Northridge Trail and then head down Devil’s Canyon Trail. The view from Lookout Point is great and the Devil’s Canyon is pretty neat too. There are a couple of spots in Devil’s Canyon that can be a little tricky if it’s wet or the dribble of a creek is up a bit. Plan a picnic and visit the Mountain Park Environmental Center while you’re there in the park. Enjoy!
