Cheyenne Mountain State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Cheyenne Mountain State Park is a one-stop shop for outdoor enthusiasts who want to mountain bike, hike, camp, picnic, or use it as a base camp for exploring what Colorado Springs has to offer. The route described here uses seven of the park’s sixteen trails and covers 12.1 of its 20 miles.

This route incorporates the southern and central portions of the park, leaving its trails to the more populated north for further exploration. This route generally combines easy and moderate terrain; although, the Blackmer Loop and Cougar’s Shadow Trails offer more technical terrain. Rock hounds wanting to test their trail riding expertise can check out the Medicine Wheel trail, the park’s most technical terrain, which is listed as an option on this route."
