Yucca Flats @ Palmer Park--recurring evening hike

  • Palmer Park

    3262 Paseo Road, Colorado Springs, CO (map)

    38.877450 -104.778043

  • We will meet in the Yucca Flats parking lot
  • A group of us were talking one night, and decided we should have some recurring evening hikes at some local parks.  This is the first of those. 

    We'll start out from Yucca Flats and see where the trail takes us. There are lots of trails in the area, so we should have plenty to explore.  Dogs are permitted off leash as well.  (yeah!)

    It's also staying light later we can walk as long as the light or our feet or the dogs hold out.

    Distance: generally 2-3 miles

    Difficulty:  easy-moderate.  Mostly easy.

    So, come join us and see what adventures present themselves weekly. 


    Directions (this is one of many ways to enter the park):

    From Maizeland Ave., enter the main gate to Palmer park. Pass the main parking lot and baseball fields on the right. Continue up Paseo Rd until you come to the Lazyland group picnic area/Yucca Flats on the right hand side. Turn right on the gravel road then bear left at the Y (the right turn will take you to the group picnic area). Parking area is at the end of the road and off-leash trails lead out from there.


    * If this is your first hike/event with our group for 2013, please bring the $5 dues with you. It will be collected before the event starts.*

    I got off early from work and went to the park. I was there at 5 and stayed on the main trail. It was pretty dark when we finished at 5:40. It was cloudy, though. It would be really cool on a full moon night! :)

    Ummm... It's Full dark out there. I was thinking it wouldn't be complete darkness at the beginning of the walk. So the flashlights aren't going to help us enough. We shouldn't be in the park at dark. So I'm going to cancel tomorrow's walk. And we'll see if/when we can try again.
    Sorry all... Better safe than anything else.

    Since the time change occurs on Sunday, we may be in the dark for this one. Please bring a flashlight just in case.
