Explore hundreds of miles of walking trails, or rent a bicycle and head to the Black Forest Trail. This four-mile trail is ideal for beginners and offers ample scenery along the way. If you prefer a more challenging bicycle trail, head to Bear Creek Canyon; this course climbs to nearly 2,200 feet within the first five miles!
After a long day of outdoor fun, why don’t you kick back with your party and fire up a BBQ outside your RV park? When the lights go down, take an evening dip in a hot tub, or socialize at your park’s on-site clubhouse.
If spectacular scenery is your bag, head to the Garden of the Gods just off N 30th Street. This public park was originally called Red Rock Corral after its burgundy rock formations. Today it is well known for its jagged ‘fins’ which line the saw-toothed landscape.
