About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 2/5]

This trail is rated easy, perfect for toddlers and toddler waddles. It starts with a small staircase, but is an otherwise firm dirt trail that meanders through Pulpit Rock Open Space. It does not go up onto Pulpit Rock, but rather along a creek bed and through fields with excellent views of Pulpit Rock and Pike’s Peak. There are no rocks to climb on this trail, but plenty of pebbles, small insects, and bunnies to admire. Follow the loop around… the trail dead ends at the neighborhood, so you will have to follow the curb/sidewalk around the corner back to your vehicle.

My name is Nicole Dominick, and I’ve been hiking with Hike it Baby since May 2016 with my daughter. She is now 4.5 years old and has hiked over 400 miles! She has been carried for most of those miles, but we enjoy every journey. We were both born and raised in Southern CA but now live in Colorado Springs, CO.
