  • What a fun way to spend an hour with our kids. The teacher was amazing, and I wish I could remember her name. Strongly recommend. We saw an ant hill that was older than 35 years old. It was awesome!  more »
  • We hiked all of the shorter trails and it was fantastic with amazing view of the Cheyenne Mountains!  more »

  • One of our favorite places in Springs! Lots of easy trails for kids to hike. There is a creek that winds through that is accessible from many many areas . summer and fall are my favorite times to go because of all the beautiful trees and flowers. During the fall time the leaves are stunning! It’s very well kept - I’ve never seen trash or dog poop on the trails. My favorite area is the curved path where the bench is at (the fall picture below). There is a small bridge over the creek and then this cute little bench. Love it! Wonderful place to spend the day or an afternoon!
  • Great place to take the family for nature walks. They also have some fantastic elementary school and middle school week long day camps in the summer!
