great in-city hiking or biking and terrific for dogs!

We go here 3-5 times a week. Many trails throughout and can take as long as a day without exploring them all. Can be easy to semi-agressive, and terrific mountain biking. But our... read more

We go here 3-5 times a week. Many trails throughout and can take as long as a day without exploring them all. Can be easy to semi-agressive, and terrific mountain biking. But our favorite is the over 4 miles of off-leash trail at the top

While we were in Colorado Springs visiting relatives they wanted to make sure to show us this park. We didn't have time to hike the trails but it was still a very nice place to stop by. When we got to some of the lookouts we could see, but not hear, most of Colorado Springs. It was kind of surreal... More

This Central-Park-sized park is right in the geographical center of CO Springs, its most rugged park. You could get lost in this park! It features many stone pillars with "tabletops" of rock atop them. Eerie looking. There are many trails. When my dog was alive, Gracie Alley Oop and I hiked this park every which way, even in the winter,... More

Friends of the park keep it really clean, great outing for kids and there are several dog run areas for the pups.

We're blessed with several dog parks in Colorado Springs, and each of them have locals who meet other dog lovers while their furry kids play. But for folks who want a little exercise while there furry kids run around, nothing beats the dog walk at the top of Palmer Park. You'll meet great dog lovers, get some exercise yourself, and...

We live very close to Palmer Park and go there often to walk. There are lots of hiking/biking/horseback trails in the park. We go to the one that allows dogs to go off-leash because there are almost no bikers and horse back riders there. Some of the trails are a bit rough, so if you don't have a lot of... More

I love hiking around in Palmer Park. It's a great place to get away from the city for a bit. There are lots of trails for a new hike each week.

There are a ton of trails here. We are going to come back a few more times to hike them all, but so far we are loving them! It's nice to have a perfect little hiking spot in the middle of town. Great views! So much fun. Dogs love it

What a great park! Drive past the popular playground and dog park and up to the overlook. Watch for the sign on the left because it faces the other way if you've entered at Maizeland. Drive to the small parking lot then walk to to overlook for a great view of the valley. We're new to the area and love... More

I love Palmer Park. It's an oasis right in the middle of the city. On the Ute Crest trail, pets are welcome to be off leash. What a fun experience it is to let your fur baby interact with other sweet dogs. The views at the very top are breathtaking.
