Midland Trail Description

Note: Beginning in August 2015, the eastern end of the Midland Trail will be closed for two years as the Colorado Department of Transportation constructs the new Interstate 25/Cimarron Street interchange. A signed on-road detour directs trail users from the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail at America the Beautiful Park to the open portion of the trail at S. Chestnut Street. A second small section of the trail between 25th Street and Vermijo Park is temporarily closed as the City of Colorado Springs works to repair severe flood damage.

As of 2012, the Midland Trail ran between America the Beautiful Park near I-25 and S. 21st Street in Colorado Springs. There are plans to continue the trail west another 2 miles into Manitou Springs. At the east end, in America the Beautiful Park, the Midland Trail links to the north–south running Pikes Peak Greenway Trail. The main Midland Trail paralles US 24 (Cimarron Street) through an urban corridor in the business district.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at the west end at Naegele Road and S. 21st. Street (the trail is a short distance north on 21st) or American the Beautiful Park (126 Cimino Drive).

Midland Trail Reviews

Update May 2017: New pavement on Naegele Road (US 24/Cimmarron St. Frontage Road) between 21st St. and 25th St.!

Great trail. UPDATE 2016: The section from 25th Street to Ridge Road is open; all-concrete path; The section from Chestnut Street to 21st Street is open. On-street signed detours: #1) Chestnut east to the Greenway Trail and #2) 21st Street west to 25th Street at Naegle Rd.

We went to America the Beautiful Park on July 3, 2015 to inline skate this trail, but access is closed due to a flood and washout last year. Construction is ongoing, and there are barriers preventing access to the trail along the east side. Take I-25 up to Fillmore Street and catch the trail from that point instead.
