Shooks Run Trail Description

The paved Shooks Run Trail runs north–south along Shooks Run Creek near downtown Colorado Springs. It is one of the easier bike paths in the area; however, runs slightly downhill from north to south. The trail gets plenty of sunshine even during the winter and a favorite among families, connecting the downtown with neighborhoods along a safe corridor. Shooks Run also offers a gravel path for running. 

The northern end of the Shooks Run Trail meets up with the Rock Island Trail two blocks north of Jackson Street and one block east of Nevada Avenue (behind the Bon Shopping Center between Wahsatch and Weber). The southern part of Shooks Run will soon connect with the Pikes Peak Greenway.

Parking and Trail Access

Access the Shooks Run Trail from Shooks Run Park on N. Franklin Street or at the northern end from the Rock Island Trail.

Shooks Run Trail Reviews

The old cracked and crumbling asphalt through this section has been replaced with new concrete and a gravel shoulder for runners thanks to ballot measure 2D! Awesome!
