Templeton Gap Trail

The Templeton Gap Trail is about 4 miles in length. It runs mostly east/west alongside the Templeton Gap Floodway, from Mark Dabling Blvd in the east (Gossage Youth Sports Complex) the trail forks at Austin’s Bluff and Union Blvd, ending at Palmer Park in the west and (near) Union Meadows Open Space to the north. Its surface is primarily cement with some segments of asphalt and gravel. It’s a mild trail with some moderate hills. The trail requires a major street crossings at N Nevada Ave and there is a mild disconnect at N Hancock Ave (by Portal Park). The trail travels on both sides of the floodway, but to cross under Union Blvd, at Hancock it is best to use the trail on the south side of the floodway. 


This trail is managed by City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services: (719) 385-5940.  For more info visit coloradosprings.gov/parks.
