I became a branch ambassador for the Colorado Springs branch in February 2017.  I became active with Hike it Baby in April 2016 and fell in love with carrier hikes.  I currently host and enjoy toddler led and stroller hikes.

Getting There

Travel south about 0.35 mi. from I-25 (S. Nevada Street exit) and turn right (west) onto W. Cheyenne Blvd. Proceed 2.75 mi. to the intersection of N. Cheyenne Canon Road & S. Cheyenne Canon Road. Turn right at this intersection onto N. Cheyenne Canon Road (past the iron gate) and travel up the winding road for 3.0 miles to the end of the road. There will be an intersection with High Drive (straight ahead), Lower Gold Camp Road (to the right) and the gravel parking lot (to the left). Park in the gravel parking area to the left. The trailhead is at the rear of the parking area. The trail begins at the iron gate that closes Upper Gold Camp Road to motorized vehicles.

About The Guide

Hike it Baby Family Trail Guide is an online resource to help families with children source trails that little legs can hike and parents can feel comfortable with. Hike details are sourced and have been hiked by families who participate in our community. Our contributors do their best to give you all the details they can, but if something is missed, you can reach out to the contributor and offer suggestions for them to add to make it a better trail description for all. This guide was built with a generous 3-year partnership with L.L Bean. Like Hike it Baby, L.L Bean believes that helping get families into nature from birth on is key to healthier, happier communities.
