The Pikes Peak Greenway Trail runs throughout Colorado Springs, from just south of the United States Air Force Academy to the El Pomar Youth Sports Park. The popular trail connects at both ends to other long regional trails: in the north, the New Santa Fe Regional Trail continues to Monument and Palmer Lake, while the Fountain Creek Regional Trail in the south winds along the waterway to Fountain (although portions may be closed due to flooding).
The trail has a mix of surfaces, including asphalt, concrete, crushed stone and dirt, but all but the skinniest of bike tires should be able to traverse the terrain without any trouble. Running primarily along Monument Creek and Fountain Creek, the trail offers a peaceful journey next to the water, with more dramatic views of Pikes Peak and other mountains in the distance.
The Pikes Peak Greenway Trail also provides direct access to a number of parks in Colorado Springs, including Monument Valley Park, Boddington Park and the Gossage Youth Sports Complex. The stunning America the Beautiful Park lies along the trail near downtown Colorado Springs; stop in at the pristine 30-acre facility to relax, recreate or simply take in the picturesque views.
As the spine of the Colorado Springs trail system, the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail also offers connections to a number of other neighborhood paths, including the Bear Creek Trail, Mesa Springs Greenway, Midland Trail, Sinton Trail and Templeton Gap Trail.
Parking for the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail can be found at several of the parks along the trail's route. To reach the Edmundson Trailhead at the pathway's northern end from Interstate 25 (US 87), take exit 149 and head west on Woodmen Road. Go through the intersection with Commerce Center Drive/Corporate Drive, and after approximately 200 feet, turn right into the trailhead parking lot.
