RRCOS has a good trail system that is very well marked with maps along most major routes. You can also make your way up to Section 16 and the Intemann trail if you want to add on.

We love hiking here because there are great views and a good variety of trails to choose from, whether you’re hiking or mountain biking. We also love that it’s less than 5 min from our house... very easy to get to from Old Colorado City...More

My son and girl friend went on a hike there with my husband and daughter. They had a great time. Not to strenuous for those not acclimated to altitude. Beautiful views.

This was a fun place to visit. It's got some nice trails. Unfortunately I didn't get to spend as much time there as I would have liked. Definitely worth going back to.

You can bring your dog on a leash. Trials on red clay so can be difficult with ground is wet. Also bring a pair of shoes to switch to after your hike. Just off I24 headed West. Enjoy.

In the area for a business trip and had some time to explore the area. It was beautiful and very peaceful to get some exercise outdoors.
