  • What a great park! Drive past the popular playground and dog park and up to the overlook. Watch for the sign on the left because it faces the other way if you've entered at Maizeland. Drive to the sma...  more »
  • I love Palmer Park. It's an oasis right in the middle of the city. On the Ute Crest trail, pets are welcome to be off leash. What a fun experience it is to let your fur baby interact with other sweet ...  more »

  • A peaceful getaway right inside the city. Beautiful sandstone of various shapes and sizes. Plenty of hiking and biking. Please bring your own trash bags and take them when you leave. The park is inhabitant of plenty of small wild critters.
  • Palmer Park has tons of trails! Trails and trailheads are well marked with the exception of a few that have worn away or were vandalized. Even though you are right in town you feel out in the woods which is great if you are trying to get away from everything but maybe only have a couple hours! Trails range from extremely easy to moderately difficult and use the ski difficulty labeling system to differentiate. (Think black Diamond for hardest, etc) All of the trails are worth hiking and about 85% are worth biking. There are few trail segments that I would be wary of possibly damaging a tire on. It's not uncommon to see horses (and what they leave behind!) on the trails as there is a stable in the park. All things considered it's probably my favorite in-town hiking park and definitely my favorite quick exercise park.
  • Great bit of preserved nature right in the middle of the city. Despite, its close proximity to civilization, one is still able to enjoy the isolation of nature in this large park with many trails.
  • I met my wife here and 3 years later we got married here at the grand overlook. We rented lazy land for our reception and loved it. I'm super biased but I love this place. It's great Mt biking, hiking, jogging, walking and spending time. It's super dog friendly. If you visit this place often then I suggest trying to show up Saturday morning to help the guardians of Palmer park keep the place lovely. The views from the top of the park are awesome.
  • I enjoy walking through this park, there are so many beautiful areas. It's never crowded for me, and I have seen an owl, a hawk & several mule deer.
