This place is always crowded on the weekends so let's take our time and stroll through it during the week.
Dry Creek Station
Directions to the Dry Creek park-n-ride: From I-25 and E Dry Creek Rd (just North of Park Meadows)., head west on E Dry Creek Rd to the light at S Chester St. Be in the far left lane. Make a u-turn at the light. Now heading east get into the far right lane. In maybe 100 yards the lane vears off for a right hand turn. Now take the left lane that turns up into the park-n-ride on the top deck. We’ll leave from this park-n-ride at 8:15. Please be on time!!!!
From I-25 going South into Colorado Springs:Take Exit #146 (Garden of the Gods Road)Go West (towards the mountains) for 2.5 milesTurn Left onto 30th StreetThe Visitor & Nature Center will be on the left (a little over a mile)
The hike: The hike is about a five mile loop. It goes up and down a little but nothing serious. I'd rate it easy to moderate.
Dogs are allowed.
