Blackmer Loop—Cheyenne Mountain State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Twist and turn up and down along the pleasant Blackmer Loop on the toe of Cheyenne Mountain. After passing a group of car-size boulders, you’ll come upon one with a ponderosa pine growing out of it. The trail generally travels in ponderosa pine and Douglas fir forest, but occasional openings present expansive views of Fort Carson and the eastern plains and of rugged Cheyenne Mountain to the west. Rustic remnants of ranching lie unused in fields along the north section of trail. Interpretive signs along Blackmer Loop and Zook Loop explain different park features."
