Corral Bluffs Open Space is a Trails, Open Space and Parks “TOPS” property located east of Colorado Springs consisting of over 700 acres. It is a rare, rugged, and beautiful landform running along both the north and south sides of US Highway 94. At a slightly higher elevation than the surrounding plains, Corral Bluffs provides a unique geographic perspective, featuring a foothills type environment even though it is about 15 miles from the Rocky Mountain foothills.
History: This amazing fossiliferous site holds the secrets to how the globe recovered from a major catastrophe, the die-off of the dinosaurs and the first million years of mammals. With expansive vistas, a multitude of wildlife, native flora, and geology like no other in Colorado – it’s worth a visit! However, because it is undeveloped and subject to important scientific research, it’s only available via guided tours. Our friends group, Corral Bluffs Alliance “CoBA” offers tours on a scheduled basis. Gather 6+ hikers and plan for a 3+ hour trip back in time through very unusual terrain. Whether you are part of a church group, scout troop, family reunion, or a school classroom, CoBA customizes hikes to meet your needs. Contact CoBA to schedule a visit today. Hikes are available every month of the year; moonlight/full-moon hikes are only available in winter months.
