There's a lot of places to hike around Palmer Park, however there's also places you can park and just look at the view.

The park sits on a plateau so there is a view of Colorado Springs and mountains. It's free. The trail we took was flat and easy. Many people with dogs.

Great hiking trails. It's a great place to walk a dog on leash. The views of the city are very nice. The park is safe and there is no admission fee.

I have visited Palmer Park a few times and find a different trail each visit to take in another overview of gorgeous Colorado Springs. Great place to watch the balloon festival or AF Academy skydivers etc. Don't forget to take your camera or smartphone.

The park for the locals -- not the public (you probaby can't find the entrance). Plain, simple, unspoiled plateau overlooking the city and the mountains. For GENUINE low-key nature-lovers ONLY. Not really for tourists. NO facilities. Curfew.

Hard trails for an east coast rider but doable don't be scared. Try and find someone that knows the trails. There are places to get hurt for sure and the local riders wear full finger gloves the sand stone can grind you down. It was...More

This park is truly a natural beauty within Colorado Springs, but it is trashed out at this time. We parked at the end of the road across from the dog park and hiked around for about an hour. We rarely went more than a minute...More

Palmer Park has about 27 miles of trails to hike from easy to moderate. There is a park on the south end and a dog park. At the top of the road to the west there is the Grandview Overlook, so even if you don't want to hike... More

sorry, I don't know anything about this. We took a hike in Palmer Park last December. It was nice.
