Trail Description
About this trail
Most of these trails were not designed with the mountain biker in mind, but a few of them make for a pretty good ride. There are great training climbs (Talon, Blackmer, Cougar's Shadow). Around the bottom, the trails are wide and well manicured so that families with strollers can negotiatie them, but the higher you go, the narrower and more technical they get. The one exception is the Medicine Wheel Trail, which is near the bottom, is a half mile technical rock fest. For a good overall ride, hit the Talon/South Talon/North Talon trails and come back down. then head up Medicine Wheel to Blackmer to Cougar's Shadow, back on to Blackmer and Medicine Wheel, Boulder Run also has a few technical challenges. Although not the best ride in the area, this is a welcome addition to C-Springs' already impressive MTB resume. there is a $6 fee/vehicle to enter the park.

Review: I'm from the northern front range and this was a great place with lots of trees and cool weather. Great variety of trails from nice climbs to sevreral fun creek crossings. Nice change from the hot rocky trails up north. I will hit this place every time I come to Colorado Springs.

Review: Rode a few of the lower trails and they are wide and very unnatural feeling. Lots of tight corners and poorly placed boulders to kill any flow you may find. Some serious drainage issues that need to be addressed. Lots of water running down the middle of trails. A few sections of technical rocky descent but not enough to make up for the minutes of climbing. Lots of slow speed technical climbing. Very well signed. Not my cup of tea...

Review: Great place to ride, but don't go too quickly until you are familiar with the specific trail you are riding. There are a few places where you will be ripping along, and then all of a sudden there are a few ill-placed small boulders. Also a few unexpected gravel areas. Ride a loop once, then go back around for your kicks!

Review: This is my happy place and today was no different than any of the other miles I've ridden here. Stellar! There is plenty for everyone in terms of ability but one thing is certain, if you don't leave with sweat pouring down your face, lungs so full of fresh air they could burst, and a smile on your face, then perhaps you should ride somewhere else ; )

Review: I LOVE this place. Its easy to get to and we typically don't see anyone on trail past the parking area. There are more than 20 mies of trail here and its very Choose Your Own Adventure. Its good for beginners/ intermediates. If you don't have a Colorado Parks Pass its $7 for the day. I like to ride up Coyote to Kestrel, back to Blackmer for a fun downhill, then over to North Talon for another climb and downhill. You really can't go wrong - its a fun place!

Review: This trail system makes for a nice family ride. Most trails are machine cut and 6ft wide. There are some rocky technical sections thar were fun like the Medicine wheel. Hikers everywhere on weekends. $7 to get in.
