Military | Colorado Springs City Parks

Colorado Springs boasts some of the most spectacular city parks in the nation. The city of Colorado Springs web site is a great place to begin exploring the numerous parks in the area and the miles of paved and gravel bike trails that run the length and width of the city. Below we added a few articles and photos about the various parks. You can sample the parks without ever leaving home!

Hunter Falls

North Cheyenne Canyon Park

Enter North Cheyenne Canyon Park, and you suddenly feel as though you were miles away from the city! The park begins at the Starsmore Discovery Center and winds up through Cheyenne Canyon with hiking trails and picnic areas interspersed. Several trailheads are along the road (The Columbine trail is the longest in the park, with a mild grade and several entry points from the road.)
