DESCRIPTION: UTE Valley Park, located within the city limits (North-West Side) of Colorado Springs, is another "premo" Parks and Recreation maintained park. It's open to hikers & bikers and dogs. It's very popular place to walk or ride when you don't have much time! This park is very scenic, full of trees, rock formations and rolling meadows. There are only a few combinations of trails so you don't have to worry about getting lost. I usually hike through the entire area which takes a couple hours at a pretty quick pace.  I always take one or both dogs--if I take JR then I go slower and stop at times since he is elderly.  Feel free to bring your dog as long as he/she gets along with other dogs. I love this hike and there are amazing views if you want to take pictures!

DIRECTIONS:From I-25 take the Woodmen Rd exit West on Woodmen Rd. Continue straight when Woodmen turns into Rock Rimmon Rd. Turn right on Vindicator and pass the Safeway and Eagle View Middle School on your left. There is a small parking lot on your left.  Let's meet in the parking lot. Call me if you have trouble with the directions-[masked]-4090.
