The Midland Trail runs between Manitou Springs and America the Beautiful Park near I-25. The urban corridor mainly follows the course of Fountain Creek, paralleling US 24 (Cimarron St.). The first section of trail, starting at Manitou Springs skate park comes to an abrupt end on Colorado Street at Columbia Rd. Crossing over to the other side of Colorado, it picks up and continues its journey at Ridge Rd. finding the creek again. An on-street crossing takes you across busy S 31 st Street and the trail continues to S 25th St. At this point, cyclists and pedestrians have to use Naegele Rd. to connect to the final segment of trail at S 21St Street. To get back on the trail, turn left and head north on 21St St., between Sheldon Ave. and W Cucharras St. This final section was the subject of recent bike-ped infrastructure improvements linked to the the I-25 and US 24/Cimarron Street Interchange Design-Build project, which saw a realignment of the Midland Trail along Upper Fountain Creek, as well as improved lighting under I-25. This project is a marked improvement from the less aesthetically pleasing asphalt trail that once ran along there. At the east end, in America the Beautiful Park, the Midland Trail links to the north–south running Pikes Peak Greenway Trail.
Park at the west end at Manitou Springs Skate Park (101 El Paso Blvd). Other options are Naegele Road and S. 21st. Street (the trail is a short distance north on 21st) or American the Beautiful Park (126 Cimino Drive).
