The Pikes Peak Greenway is a 16-mile stretch of trail running from just south of the Air Force Academy in the north to Fountain in the south. It runs alongside Interstate 25 and Fountain Creek, and is the spine of the urban trail system in Colorado Springs, connecting to dozens of east-west trails along its length. Through grants from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and the Colorado Springs TOPS Program, much of the middle section through the city is an 8-foot-wide concrete commuter trail.
Thanks to a generous donation from REI Colorado Springs, the Trails and Open Space Coalition has partnered with the City of Colorado Springs Stormwater to build 15 new adoptee groups for the Pikes Peak Greenway.
Civic Groups, businesses, schools, Scouts and neighborhoods are encouraged to participate. Just follow the link and get started. Together we can transform the Greenway into a beautiful community asset for cyclists, walkers, runners and commuters. Join us in May 2013 for the Annual Greenway Cleanup.
