The 8-mile unpaved trail network consists of single-track trails divided into four different, but interconnected, loops with 2.5 miles of paved accessible segments in the active park area near the Miller Activity Complex (MAC). The trails explore all the valleys, knolls and high points of this 300-acre site with views of Pikes Peak and the surrounding Front Range mountains. A unique feature on the site is the Challenge Hill, with 200 steps that climb 178 feet in elevation, similar to the Manitou Springs Incline. Dogs are prohibited on the Challenge Hill.
This is an active regional park that includes the Miller Activity Complex, Challenge Hill, Millhouse events center, Amphitheater, Core Plaza, Fitground, synthetic-turf field and Adventure Playground. Additional amenities, made available through a public-private partnership with The EDGE Ziplines and Adventures, include a zip-line course, adventure tower, ninja course and an aerial trekking course. Find information about these amenities.
Parking is available in the park and the main parking lot at the MAC. The trails also connect to Ridgeline Open Space and the unpaved Stewart Trail network to the west via the Wolfensberger Road pedestrian overpass; the Ridgeline trailhead parking lot is located on Coachline Road.
