Sinton Trail Description

The Sinton Trail runs just shy of 3 miles in northern Colorado Springs. Begin your journey at the Gossage Youth Sports Complex on Mark Dabling Boulevard. From there, you'll travel northwest along Douglas Creek with residential areas off to either side. At this endpoint, the trail also connects to the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail, a 16-mile pathway that runs north-south through the city, as well as the shorter Templeton Gap Trail.

After about a quarter mile, you'll pass Sinton Pond, a beautiful aquatic habitat in a busy urban area. Here, you may see ducks, geese, deer, song birds, hawks and falcons.

Continue to the trail's end on Garden of the Gods Road. If you brought your camera, go a little farther north to N. 30th Street to reach the Foothills Trail. This trail will take you to the Garden of the Gods, a National Natural Landmark with awe-inspiring sandstone formations that tower over the landscape.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Gossage Youth Sports Complex (3950 Mark Dabling Boulevard) at the trail's southern end.

Sinton Trail Reviews

New concrete has replaced the old asphalt trail between Gossage Park and the I-25 underpass. The trail alignment is basically unchanged so some relatively steep sections remain.

This is a cool trail with a good deal of variety. It passes through wooded areas and open areas with views and past residential areas. There is even a narrow tunnel under Centennial Blvd.

Bladers should avoid the section between the Greenway and I-25 until the City upgrades this section of the trail later this year (2016). Right now this section from the Greenway to I-25 is a narrow, rough asphalt path with significant elevation drop and a couple very steep sections (by inline standards). West of Chestnut the trail is more suitable for blading with newer asphalt surface conditions. However, the trail is basically all downhill from west to east. This trail should be considered for an uphill workout (westbound) and downhill adrenaline roll (eastbound) for more advanced inline skaters.

This trail runs north-south and is mostly concrete with a few asphalt sections. There a few small hills and a couple of wooden bridges over Fountain Creek, but the surface is smooth and there isn't much debris.
