This city park offered a variety of hiking and some of the best mountain biking in the area (23 miles of trails I believe). The trails are rated green, blue and black--like ski trails. Believe me, you do NOT want to go on a black rated trail on your mountain bike unless you are an expert. There are several picnic... More

Palmer Park is an amazing city park! It is located in the middle of Colorado Springs, and has something for everyone. There are miles of hiking and mountain biking trails! Some trails are a lot more challenging then others. You get great views of the city and Front Range. There is a dog park, and lots of great trails for... More

It was a nice view and the hiking trails were okay. I wouldn't hike there again but I enjoyed it for a one time thing. There were a lot of mountain bikers on the trails and that looked like great fun!

Beautiful views of Colorado Springs. Small parking areas at top, or park at the base and hike/bike/run up.

This park has some challenging trails and something for all skill and fitness levels. Not as much tree cover as in mountains but has some interesting rocks that are fun to think about and climb on. As expected with a park in the city, there is some litter and occasional broken glass. Big park with lots of places to picnic... More

This is a great park to visit for hiking, picnicing, bringing the kids for a place to run and play Several places to park and have a scenic overview of Colorado Springs. This park does have a history of car break-ins so don't leave valuables in your vehicle and make certain it is locked if you go on a walk/hike.

Lovely views and lots of walking/hiking trails right in the city! It feels a little run-down but the campsites/picnic areas were clean.

Park for kids, restrooms, and plenty of trails that have views of the mountains and parts of Colorado springs. Not a lot of shade on trails, but good for hiking, walking, running, biking.

This place is so cool to drive through. It's like going up into the mountains without going all the way up into the mountains. There are so many places to stop off and hike or climb. Dog park, picnic tables, awesome views. Worth the trip for sure.
