About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 5/5]

This Nature Center includes several short trails, perfect for little walkers. There are some fun highlights like a rock maze, a creek that is popular with the local ducks, and several bridges and platforms to thump up and down. The building itself has informational exhibits but also houses a pre-school. The Nature Center is part of a park with a playground and tennis courts, and the same parking lot serves as a trail head for other local trails.

My name is Nicole Dominick, and I’ve been hiking with Hike it Baby since May 2016 with my daughter. She is now 3 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 recently moved to Colorado Springs, CO.

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.
