The Sand Creek Trail cuts a diagonal path along the creek through commercial and residential areas of southeastern Colorado Springs.
The first segment trail begins its 5-mile journey north at El-Pomar Youth Sports Park. A trail spur by the Sierra High School west of Academy Boulevard also offers an important connection to the YMCA/Southeast Family Center. El-Pomar Park is also a starting point for the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail.
On its northern end, the trail runs through Wildflower Park, which surrounds Wildflower Elementary School and offers athletic fields, a picnic pavilion and a playground. Another trail spur branches from the park to the Sand Creek Elementary School.
A separate northern segment follows Sand Creek for 3.9 miles between Woodmen Road and Barnes Road.
Future plans call for thfe trail to continue north along Sand Creek to Black Forest, for a total trail length of 15 miles.
Parking is available in Wildflower Park (980 Nolte Drive W.).
