  • This is a great park to watch the sun set over the mountains! The park is made up mostly of a giant ridge hurting out of the ground in the north western part of Colorado Springs. There is an assortment of trails here, perfect for hiking, biking, hanging out, picnicking, or walking your dog on in an outing. The trails I would say are mostly easy with maybe a few intermediate segents. This is a great park, and it's natural beauty and extraordinary views will leave you breathless.
  • An awesome free park, with one major downfall. The parking lot only holds maybe 10-12 cars. It does offer beautiful views many dog, and mountain bike friendly trails, and a clearly labeled park map. Overall you can easily spend 1-4 hours here hiking and wandering, depending on your activity level and amount of stops and photos. Another perk is that the park is surprisingly quiet and isolated from city noise while still being in the city.
  • Ute Valley Park is a popular place to hike, run or mountain bike and is one of my favorite places to escape for an hour. It is easy to get to yet feels faraway. Some of the trails are wide and smooth, but most twist through trees and rocks. Many trails wind up rocky ridges or through pine forests. None of the trails are very steep and don’t gain much elevation, but they can be taxing because they are rough. There are many view points along some of the ridges that are worth the short climb. Dozens of miles of trails in a small area interconnect, offering a wide variety of routes. If you are a mountain biker, you should be prepared for some technical and twisty trails. There is no water in the park, so bring water to drink. The park is not stroller or wheelchair friendly.
  • It's a great place for a walk. The feeling of being in the forest at times. What a great place to walk alone or with friends. You can also get some trail running in.
  • This is an awesome place to mountain bike, take photos, and hike around. The area around the north parking lot is easy for kids to hike around in, however parking is always packed. The west parking area is in a subdivision and is easier to park, but if you’re with children be advised you’ll have to hike straight up a steep hill.

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
