Lincoln Mountain Open Space

Just off of Colorado 83 between Larkspur and Monument is an enormous 876 acre park with over 8 miles of trails. Popular with horseback riders, bikers and hikers alike, the area features grassy meadows, forested areas, rocky cliffs, mesas with great views and abundant wildlife. There are two main trails to choose from, both over 4 miles long: the Palmer Divide Loop and the Lincoln Mountain Loop. If you want views of the front range, take the Lincoln Mountain Trail.

Directions from COS: Drive north on Hwy 83. Turn left on Jones Rd, about 6 miles north of Highway 105. The trail head is about a half mile further on your right.
