If you’re ever in the Colorado Springs area, I highly recommend a visit to Ute Valley Park. It’s a gorgeous park in it’s own right, and also has some lovely views of Pike’s Peak! Trails take you through brush, wooded areas, and possibly the most popular, along the various sandstone formations.
There are trails for the usual hiking and running, though it’s very popular for biking as well, and there’s even an area where climbers are able to practice (not the cliff face, but a large formation on the west side).
Blodgett Peak nearby as well, so why not take a few days to explore them both?
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
