Things To Do In Colorado Springs – Hiking Edition


hey what’s up everybody it is mark
with my Front Range living and we often get asked what are some of our favorite
hikes here in Colorado Springs because let’s be honest everybody moves to
Colorado Springs for the outdoor beauty and the adventure that comes with it . so
today we are looking at our top five favorite hikes in the Colorado Springs
area and we’re starting right now so once again I am mark with my Front Range
living powered by Remax integrity I’m a realtor here in Colorado Springs and I
love hiking our entire group likes hiking and so we have kind of honed in
our five favorite hikes in Colorado Springs so you can get out there and
check them out and we’re gonna start with Mount Cutler, Mount Cutler is one of
our favorites it’s relatively easy it’s a really well maintained trail and
it’s about two miles roundtrip so it’s not a terribly long hike and you can get
it in pretty easily and you get spectacular views from the top of it so
that’s one of the reasons we love mount Cutler and another one it’s located in
Cheyenne Canyon so it’s really really convenient now be prepared there’s
limited parking so you’re gonna want to get there and see if you can park so we
are here at Red Rock Canyon it’s where we’re gonna start today it’s easily one
of our top five favorite hikes love the location just west of Colorado Springs
on 24 it’s awesome because there’s multiple trails here at Red Rock Canyon
it’s family friendly for the most part they have a lake right over there it’s
so it’s so family friendly for the most part
there’s some trails that may not be for everybody but dog friendly so again if
you haven’t been to all breed rescue you’re not even allowed at Red Rock
Canyon without a dog so go to all breed rescue get your dog then come to Red
Rock Canyon they even have some off leash trails
which is kind of nice for your pups because what pup doesn’t love to hike
they also have rock climbing here at Red Rock Canyon which is really really cool
it’s not just for garden of the gods you can come over here to Red Rock canyon
do some rock climbing one of our favorite parts about Red Rock Canyon too
is at the entrance you’re gonna notice a free ride bike park so there’s some
ramps and there’s some bridges and stuff like that that you can ride your
mountain bike on it’s a cool experience this whole park is just awesome
so next up it’s a little bit of a drive but totally worth it it is the crags now
the crags are just south of divide so it’s a little bit west of Colorado
Springs and then South of divide. this is a family-friendly about a 5 mile
round trip hike and it’s beautiful it’s absolutely gorgeous when you get up into
that part of the area a lot of great views one thing that’s interesting about
the crags and a little bit unique is the fact that it’s horse friendly so if you
have a horse instead of a dogs you can take your horse for a walk at the crags
no seriously you can go horseback riding at the crags and it’s absolutely
gorgeous over there and another one of our favorites is seven bridges now seven
bridges is a family-friendly hike as well as being dog friendly and let’s be
honest if you’re gonna move to Colorado Springs you’re gonna need a dog if you
don’t have one get over to all breed rescue get you one and then you can come
out to seven bridges it’s dog friendly as well one of our favorite things about
seven bridges as well is the fact that there is gorgeous scenery there the
trail itself actually runs alongside a creek it’s an awesome hike you’ve got to
check that one out alright the next one we’re going to talk about is the
incline now obviously everyone knows about the incline if you’re gonna be in
Colorado Springs it is a landmark the incline is just outside of Manitou
Springs it’s a super super challenging hike so if you’re gonna do it be ready
to be pushed to the limits that said it is totally worth the trip it is awesome
now you’re gonna gain about 2,000 feet in elevation in one mile so it is it’s
called the incline for a reason 2,000 feet in one mile however once you get to
the top amazing amazing fantastic city views up there they’re great so when you
come down you’re gonna be coming down the barr trail and if you get tired about
two-thirds of the way up there’s a cutoff that you can head over to barr
trail and come down early if you want to but try and make it to the top that said
stay hydrated drink lots of water because it is a tough tough hike up the
incline but absolutely worth it you’re gonna enjoy it so there you have
it everybody those are our top five favorite hiking spots here in the
Colorado Springs area we hope that you found value in that once again I am mark
Hubert with my Front Range living and here’s what’s fantastic once you’re done
hiking you can go and check out our five favorite breweries in the area so we are
