The paved Shooks Run Trail runs northsouth along Shooks Run Creek near downtown Colorado Springs. It is one of the easier bike paths in the area; however, runs slightly downhill from north to south. The trail gets plenty of sunshine even during the winter and a favorite among families, connecting the downtown with neighborhoods along a safe corridor.
The northern end of the Shooks Run Trail meets up with the Rock Island Trail Colorado Springs
section 2 blocks north of Jackson Street and 1 block east of Nevada Avenue (behind the Bon Shopping Center between Wahsatch and Weber). The southern part of Shooks Run will soon connect with the Pikes Peak Greenway
Access the Shooks Run Trail from Shooks Run Park on N. Franklin Street or at the northern end from the Rock Island Trail.
