Legacy Loop Description

The Legacy Loop is a ten-mile system of greenways ringing around downtown Colorado Springs. The trails serve to highlight the waterways and picturesque landscape that are such a core part of the city’s identity. It was the natural beauty of the area that partly drew the city’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, to settle here, and those natural assets were central to his vision for the city. The Loop seeks to honor that legacy.

The Legacy Loop comprises three trails:

There’s also a primary trailhead - Legacy Plaza, the Gateway to the Legacy Loop, which acts as a gathering space and staging area for special events like trail runs, walks and rides. 

Parking and Trail Access

The primary entrance to the trail can be accessed just off of I-25 via Legacy Plaza at 1800 Recreation Way, which provides parking and access to Monument Valley Park and the Pikes Peak Greenway. 



Legacy Loop Reviews

Morning walk

Nice morning walk in an urban setting. Good way to view different neighborhoods.

Not what I expected!

We began our ride from the southern endpoint. Much of the trail is gravel, not concrete - not ideal for road bikes. There is a lot of garbage and debris along the trail. There is a large homeless population living along the trail. Lots of room to improve the experience for riders. I won’t do this trail again.
