Colorado Springs Regional Trail Finder

Welcome to the Colorado Springs Trail Finder

Below is my ongoing list of hikes in the Colorado Springs region I have been completing.  My criteria for adding a hike to this list is that the trail can be reasonably easy to drive to, hike, and be back home all in one day from Colorado Springs.  Every hike on the Colorado Springs Trail Finder is doable in one day and each link has a map and description for the hike.  I have organized the hikes by difficulty level.  These hikes are listed on the custom Google Map that I built below.  The trails are listed by difficulty on the left side of the map.  Use the map to zoom in and see where the trail are located.  Below the map a chart with more details and links to trip reports can be found.  The trip reports include topographic maps for each trail.  I will add additional hikes to this list as I complete them.  If anyone has any hikes in the Colorado Springs region that they recommend I check out please leave a comment.  Thanks for visiting On-Walkabout.
