Great trails for mountain biking, hiking or taking your dog for a walk. This park offers several different trail systems that loop together. Some trails are set aside for hiking only and some are just perfect for techincal mtn biking. Boulders, dirt, trees, sand, slick rock all abound in different places throughout the park. There are signs posted stating that rattlesnakes are found in this area, however, I've hiked and biked it many times and have never seen a single one. Early morning hikes will provide opportunity to see mule deer grazing or just meandering around. Very close views of Pikes Peak are to be seen and from certain vantage points you will see awesome views of Garden of the Gods. Any time of year is a good time to visit this park which is a close get-away from busy city life.
