Stetson Trail Description

The Stetson Trail is a concrete pathway through residential neighborhoods that stretches 2 miles across northeastern Colorado Springs. It closely follows the south side of Stetson Hills Boulevard. As some areas of the trail are incomplete, be sure to check the city's parks and recreation web page for the latest developments before heading out.

After traveling east a short distance from the trail's beginning at Austin Bluffs Parkway, you'll arrive at the High Chaparral Open Space Trailhead (a large water tank marks the spot). From here, the adventurous can hop on the gravel Homestead Trail to travel south through Old Farm Park, or access the trails in the High Chaparral Open Space, a 54-acre wildlife habitat of scrubland and prairie that offers fantastic views of the Front Range from one of the highest points in the city.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the High Chaparral Open Space Trailhead on Stetson Hills Boulevard (approximately 0.25 mile east of Austin Bluffs Parkway).
