What are the best hiking trails near Colorado Springs?
Some of the most incredible hiking in Colorado is easily within reach of Colorado Springs. One of the most beautiful and easy nearby hikes is the 17-mile Santa Fe trail; and while the distance sounds daunting, you don’t have to walk the whole length of the trail. You can cut it into segments, or ride your bike along it since it’s quite flat. This easy 1/2-mile trail in Cheyenne Canyon is another popular trail featuring a waterfall, but go early in the morning to beat the crowds: it’s well worth it! There are a ton of other trails in the canyon to explore as well, such as Mt. Cutler and Mt. Muscoco. If you don’t mind driving a little further, we highly recommend exploring the 11 best hiking trails in Colorado.
