Palmer Park is a local favorite because, without driving very far at all, you are in the midst of hundreds of acres of gorgeous and remote-feeling wilderness! The view from Grandview is unparalleled of the city with Pike's Peak in the background. Dozens of hiking...More

Scenic location looking over the vastness of Colorado Springs. Perfect for early morning views, walks, hikes and evening place to look over the city at night. Pet friendly. A ideal location for mountain biking as well.

It's a great extension of woods right in the town! It has all kinds of challenges for hikers and cyclists, from simple flat trails to rocky ones...at diverse heights too! I very much enjoyed it!
