The Templeton Gap Trail is one of many trails that make up Colorado Springs' robust trail network. The Templeton Gap Trail itself connects to both the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail and Sinton Trail in the west, as well as the Greencrest Trail in the east at Palmer Park. A connection to the Austin Bluffs Trail, which runs through the campus of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, can be found at N. Union Boulevard.
Winding for nearly 4.5 miles, the Templeton Gap Trail connects the large Palmer Park with the city's Gossage Youth Sports Complex. Be sure to check out the miles of trails in Palmer Park and the magnificent sandstone bluffs that dot the landscape. At Gossage Youth Sports Complex, consider taking in a game of amateur baseball or soccer, or bring your skateboard to enjoy the city's public skate park.
Parking for the Templeton Gap Trail is available at the trailhead at the Gossage Youth Sports Complex and at Portal Park off N. Hancock Avenue at the trail's midpoint. For those wishing to go on a longer journey, consider parking at the southeastern corner of Palmer Park. From there, take the Greencrest Trail to where it meets the Templeton Gap Trail at Austin Bluffs Parkway.
