Running north-south along Shooks Run Creek near downtown Colorado Springs, Shooks Run Trail is an easy bike or walk along a paved path, trending slightly downhill toward the south. It currently runs from its connection with the Rock Island Trail (two blocks north of Jackson and one block east of Nevada Ave) on the north end to just past Fountain Blvd in the South. Plans call for the southern end of the trail to eventually connect to the Pikes Peak Greenway.
This trail is accessible at many points throughout its length. Plentiful parking is available at the Bon Shopping Center, 2300 N Wahsatch Avenue.
The Shooks Run Trail connects with the Rock Island Trail, and a projected project will connect it to the Pikes Peak Greenway in the future.
