Black Forest Regional Park

Hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, tennis, basketball, soccer, horseshoes are some of the activities you'll find at Black Forest Regional Park. With 4 miles of trails over 385 acres, there's much to explore. While some of the park suffered from the terrible wildfire that swept through in 2013, much of the park was unscathed. I visited in June and found many varieties of wildflowers blooming throughout the park. Nice views of Pikes Peak can be had from various spots on the trails.

For more information on the park, click here and here.

Driving Directions: The park can be reached from Interstate 25, exit 153; Go north on Highway 83 to Shoup Road; turn east on Shoup for 2.5 mils to Milam Road; and turn north into the park. The first parking area is primarily for hiking and picnicking. Continue on Milam Road a short distance and the main parking area for the park and its features will be found on your right.
