Pretty much this is a road ride on the dirt, But families might enjoy the laid back ride and the good long peddaling workout. 8 mile out and 8 miles back.

    There are actually two segments to this trail. The west segment runs east and west for about 6 mi, along Constitution Ave., from Powers to Shooks Run Trail near the intersection of Weber and Jackson streets. Using the side streets for a 1/2 mile, you can head further west and connect it to the Santa Fe trail (6.6 mi total). It is a steady very slight decline from Powers heading west.
    The east segment of the trail parallels US Hwy 24 for 9 mi between Peyton and Falcon. The entire trail gets its name because it is built upon the old Chicago to Rock Island railroad line.

    Trail runs from the Santa Fe Trail on the north end of Monument Park all the way to Powers Road following Constitution. It is mostly paved and a family/kids oriented trail though I sometimes use it to ride home from a day of riding on Pikes Peak. Nice resource for roadies, joggers and walkers.
