The Midland Trail runs east-west between America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. The first section is 8-foot wide concrete, running parallel to Highway 24. (Look for the art bench at 17th Street, build with TOSC funds in partnership with Concrete Couch). At 21st Street, there is a gap in the trail. If you are headed west, turn left then right onto Naegele Road. After a couple of blocks you will be able to pick up the trail again at 25th. At Ridge Road there is another jog left on Colorado Avenue for a block or so, then pick up the trail at Columbia Road. Follow this trail into Manitou.
Starting from Manitou, the visitor center or Schryver Park are good entry points. In Colorado Springs, there is access from America the Beautiful Park and all major cross streets along the route.
The Midland Trail connects to the Pikes Peak Greenway, Foothills Trail, Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and the City of Manitou Springs.
