Mesa Springs Greenway Description

The Mesa Springs Greenway is a north-south route along the western side of Interstate 25. A sound wall between the highway and the trail helps makes the journey more pleasant. The pathway is also wide and level, making for an easy trip through the heart of Colorado Springs. The trail traverses quiet residential neighborhoods and is dotted with trees.

Just south of Dale Street, a trail spur can take you across a pedestrian bridge over I-25 to Monument Valley Park. Worth a visit, the park features beautiful gardens and ponds, sports facilities, picnic areas and walking trails. From there, you can also hop on the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail to access many of the city's other attractions, such as the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Money Museum, as well as Colorado College.

Parking and Trail Access

On-street parking can be found near the trail's southern tip on the cul-de-sac at the end of Platte Avenue.

A parking lot can also be found in Monument Valley Park (170 W. Cache La Poudre Street); the park's lot is on the south side of Mesa Road. A short trail at the south end of the parking lot will take you to the pedestrian bridge over I-25 to the Mesa Springs Greenway.
