Palmer Point Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This fantastic hike through a city park has excellent views of Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods. Bizarre rock formations, wildflowers, and fields filled with blooming yuccas all contribute to an excellent hike within the city limits of Colorado Springs. There are many trails that crisscross Palmer Park. Follow the map and mileage cues, and you shouldn’t have any problems enjoying this beautiful area."
--Bob D Antonio, Hiking Colorado's Front Range (Falcon Guides).
"Palmer Park is a mountain biking oasis. This slice of singletrack heaven is surrounded by the entire mass of humanity that is Colorado Springs. If you were going to train an elite force of mountain bikers, you could do the entire program here. Easy rolling trails, rim-wrecking drop-offs, steep climbs over step-like rocks, balance-beam boulders— you name it and Palmer Park has it. Including crowds when the weather is nice. These include hikers, other bikers, and equestrian enthusiasts. Don’t forget to yield to all. Why? Because we are having so much fun that we should be in the mood to share our joy and pull over for the hikers and horseback riders. Besides, if you don’t the powers that be may shut bikers out of this singletrack temple. Be nice so the rest of us can continue to enjoy! Tread: Sweet singletrack. The tread can get soft and sandy during dry spells."
--David Crowell, Mountain Biking Colorado Springs (Falcon Guides).
