Briargate Trail Description

The Briargate Trail is located in northern Colorado Springs, beginning at the athletic fields of John Stone Park. From there, this pleasant trail travels southeast through residential areas for just over 2 miles. Mid-trail, you'll come to Candleflower Park, an open grassy area to play and picnic.

The southern half gets somewhat hilly and steep, ending at the Woodmen Trail, an east-west route through commercial and residential areas. If you're hungry, turn west when you get there and you'll arrive shortly at a small shopping area with a King Soopers and restaurants.

Parking and Trail Access

A large parking lot is available on the eastern edge of John Stone Park (4017 Family Place).

Briargate Trail Reviews

I like this trail for walks and biking. I live near the north end so it's all downhill out and all uphill back. As mentioned it's not terribly scenic unless you're looking up at the range since it's an open space for the most part "behind" tract homes. The trail is all concrete and in pretty good shape. There are only a couple streets to cross. Research is pretty busy so take the extra 1/4 mile or so to go down to the crosswalk.

If you plan on taking this trail during a sunny day, make sure you have plenty of sunscreen. There are no (zero, none, nada) trees covering this trail and you will be exposed to the sun for the entire duration of this trail. Several inclines with ok views. The trail travels through Briargate private home(s) neighborhood, so you will be greeted with many dogs and locals bicycling.
