From the parking lot be sure to start hiking on the dirt path to the left, you will hike along a wooden fence, over a road, and then the open space trails begin. You can choose to turn right onto the Ridgetop trail at the first intersection, and then turning left onto the Prairie Loop Trail at the next intersection for a total of 2 miles.  This route is all-terrain single stroller friendly, and offers great views of Pikes Peak.  Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed.  This trail is exposed and sun protection is recommended.  There are also yucca spikes throughout, so be sure to have kids stay on the main trail.  This area is not wheel-chair friendly.

I have lived in Colorado Springs since 2010, and really enjoy hiking! I became active with Hike it Baby in April 2016 and fell in love with carrier hikes. I became a branch ambassador for the Colorado Springs branch in February 2018.  I now help with the national team with localized support and the LEAP program.  I currently host and enjoy toddler led and stroller hikes.
