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.
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.
