Rockrimmon Trail, named for the Colorado Springs neighborhood in which it lies, begins in Foothills Park, adjacent to Foothills Elementary School. From there, the crushed-stone trail winds its way southeast along a small creek for about 1 mile to Golden Hills Park. Note that you'll have to cross Delmonico Drive to get to the park. (There is another street crossing at Rockrimmon Boulevard as well.) Both parks offer picnic tables, restrooms, a playground and athletic fields.
Along with views of the Rocky Mountains, you may see wildlife, such as deer, fox, rabbits and falcons on your journey, which are commonly spotted in the area.
Parking and Trail Access
A small parking lot is available at Golden Hills Park (6155 Delmonico Drive). From I-25, take the Rockrimmon Boulevard Exit. Turn right (north) onto Delmonico Drive. The park is about a mile farther down on the right.
