  • Nice park and the ducks are cute. A bit hilly, but you get an awesome view of the city from the top. Not easy to get lost either - paths are apparent with plenty of signage. Great place to run or bike.
  • What more can you ask for? This is a very nice and well maintained city park at the foot of the mountain. It has a good variety of trails ranging from easy flat to steep, Rocky technical and difficult to please everyone with a good challenge and beautiful views of the Pikes Peak. Most of the trails are multiuse so be careful of bikers and hikers on the same trail and follow trail etiquette. Also, there is a "hikers only" trail, if you are a biker, please respect this and do the go poaching the trail - stay out of it. It is a good place to hike with your dog and kids, but be very careful, especially on hot days as this park does have a fair amount of rattle snakes. I have been riding and hiking here for 8 years and have never seen any, but there are many reports of them. Enjoy your hike!
  • I live about 2 blocks from ute valley park. I am usually hiking or mountain biking in this park 3-4 times a week. It is beautiful and I am so glad that a long time ago someone had the forethought to set this place aside from development. I do love this place. The only downside is that there are a lot of dog owners that let their dog waste/bags filled with waste lying on the trail or they let their dogs off leash. I flipped over the handlebars of my bike because a little lap-dog ran in front of me a few days ago. If people would keep their dogs on leash and clean up their dog poop this place would be perfect! Oh, and watch out for the occasional rattlesnake.
  • Generally well-maintained trails here that aren't too crowded. Ute Valley is a great spot to get outdoors without having to go very far.
  • Natural bliss in the middle of town. Good hiking, biking trails. Some bear, deer, and snakes.

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.
