Tunnel Drive Trail

very enjoyable!!

May, 2021 by ritabryant81

Beautiful scenery and easy hike! Moderate, 25-TD incline to begin, then very flat.

Tunnel Drive Trail

BEAUTIFUL & EASY

May, 2021 by ritabryant81

After only one 25-yard moderate incline, enjoy a relatively flat, crushed-granite trail along the Arkansas River. The Royal Gorge Route train tracks run along the Arkansas River below the trail. Very scenic. Very quiet. Family friendly. Two miles in/Two miles out. Three cool tunnels, also! Might see white-water rafters or the Royal Gorge train which runs 3x/day through the gorge. Highly recommend!

Homestead Trail (CO)

Train in Poor Condition

December, 2020 by kevinbrad

The condition of this trail is terrible. Tree roots have buckled the pavement. There are large potholes throughout making it very dangerous to ride on. It is clear that the city has never made an investment to repair the damages. Do not use this trail.

The city seems to love cement trails, i guess they have lots of money. I would prefer a nice gravel trail myself. The cranks and grinding to level the cement has improved the surface a lot.

Upper Gold Camp Road

amazing view

August, 2020 by mickeybiosense

Amazing trail I highly suggest. First tunnel closed follow the path created to go over the tunnel. Carry bike takes 10 minutes over mountain over few rocks and stream. This is worth it views are amazing. Note when starting trail it’s 1000 feet biking up the trail before you desend on other side totally worth. Take breaks. Tunnels are a little scary it’s not lit so bring mountain bikes flash lights.

Sand Creek Trail

Homeless, dirt patches, run down, and more

August, 2020 by asevans48

The trail is nice from its Northern starting point near Sand Creek Elementary to Chelton road. The next patch after this is paved to a barrier erected by the homeless leading directly into a homeless camp all the way to the Hancock Expressway. You have to skate/ride through the camp. After that, the path becomes a mix of unkept dirt patches and homeless people past the jail to the sports park and connection with the Front Range Trail.

As a skater, I had a better time on the Front Range Trail/Pikes Peak Regional Greenway (South/North at the park). That part is dirt and requires the large wheels of a tri-skate.

As with all Colorado Springs trails, you will be dissapointed. 0/5 for 90 % 5/5 for 1/4 of a mile.

Rock Island Trail (CO)

Unkept, broken benches, could be great

August, 2020 by asevans48

This trail needs serious maintenance work. There is a pile of dirt under every bridge. Handrails are down as well between Galley and Murray. The concrete is broken beyond the point of being called concrete between Shooks Run and the newer trail. This is a commuter trail that no one cares about. It was nice to commute down the Cherry Creek Trail to work in Denver and from Denver to Englewood/Chatfield. I could even skate those trails they were so well taken care of. Hopefully, someone starts to take care of Shooks Run, the Legacy Loop, and the Rock Island trail. It could make the city more appealing to start ups, making the commute to Denver less of a necessity ($97 per day spent outside city limits on gas/food/car wear and tear).

If Colorado Springs took a little more care of and updated its trail system, you could actually commute to work without using a car. Sadly, that is impossible with the state of this system.

Shooks Run Trail

Broken Concrete, Unkept, Crosses Multiple streest

August, 2020 by asevans48

I am a fitness skater who loves speed. This trail is worse than every trail but prats of the Highline Canal Trail in Westminster, CO. Moved here last week and was looking for a 5-star trail system like the one in Denver. This one is a full-star unlike the 1/2 star Rock Island. Do not skate here without SUV skates or large wheels, preferably the latter to avoid flats

Pros:
- Some cool restaurants and an ice cream place along the way
- Covers nicer neighborhoods in the city

Cons:
- Have to cross major and minor roads every 1/10 - 1/4 mile
- Parks along route need some serious care
- Major chunks of concrete missing
- Dirt under the legacy loop bridge that never gets cleaned up
- Dirty
- Broken concrete in patches

Skates:
Powerslide Next 110 (big wheeled skate)

Does this city care about the park system? You can get from Denver to Aurora, Chatfield to Golden on some of the nicest sidewalk. Here it feels like the last time anyone paved a trail or removed and power washed the dirt away was 1995. There is 1 nice section though with a new sidewalk between the bridge and Tasty Freeze. Could be such a great skate/run/biking trail. They will need to enhance the trails to compete with the quality of life in the state.
