About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This 5.7 mile loop trail offers views of Red Rocks Canyon Park and Garden of the Gods park, it is partly shaded throughout, and you cross over a creek towards the end of the hike. Be sure to hike to the left on High Drive to reach the initial parking lot.  It is steep in certain areas, so strong hikers are recommended if doing it as a carrier hike.  This trail is not stroller or wheelchair friendly.  Dogs are allowed, but must be leashed.

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.
