The Midland Trail is about 8 miles in length. The urban corridor mainly follows the course of Fountain Creek, paralleling US 24 (Cimarron St.), from America the Beautiful Park in the east to Ridge Rd in the west. The surface is paved, primarily concrete. It’s an easy trail with a mild slope, downhill heading east. The trail has several street crossings, most notable are 31st St and 8th St, both have pedestrian signals. At there is a gap in the trail between 21st and 25th, use Naegele Road, it is lightly used by motor vehicles.
NOTE: This area is known for having alternatively housed individuals on and near the trail.
This trail is managed by City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services: (719) 385-5940. For more info visit coloradosprings.gov/parks.
Connections: The Midland Trail connects directly to the Pikes Peak Greenway, American the Beautiful Park and Olympic Museum. With some street/sidewalk use, it is possible to connect to the Foothills Trail, Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and the City of Manitou Springs. Look for the art bench at 17th Street, build by Concrete Couch.
