The Lake Moraine Trail is now OPEN!
A few days ahead of schedule and on budget, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates is proud to announce that the long-awaited Lake Moraine Trail (aka the Missing Link) is now open for your riding (or hiking) adventures. Here’s a link to an online map of the trail:
Over 20+ years in the making, this 4-mile trail through Colorado Springs Utilities land, provides a needed connection to the Barr Trail and Jones Park. Encompassing spectacular views of Pikes Peak, the trail winds its way through aspen groves and granite boulder fields, crosses the Cog Railway and climbs out of Ruxton Creek to eventually connect with the Jones Park Trail.
A major part of the trail construction was carried out by Singletrack Trails funded through a grant provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Non-motorized Trail Grant program. But of course many volunteer hours were spent laying out the trail route, clearing the trail corridor, completing environmental review processes, and constructing segments of the trail. A large contingent of volunteers and staff from Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado spent an entire weekend hand-cutting trail tread and managed to complete nearly a mile of trail on that one weekend!
