Amazing views and nature has been preserved in the middle of the city. The trails are fun to hike and there is a lot of nature all around. It's a great place to picnic or spend a warm winter day in.

A beautiful, though somewhat hidden park, with lots and lots of paths, views, and adventures. Trails are well marked with signs to point the way.

There's a lot of places to hike around Palmer Park, however there's also places you can park and just look at the view.

The park sits on a plateau so there is a view of Colorado Springs and mountains. It's free. The trail we took was flat and easy. Many people with dogs.

Great hiking trails. It's a great place to walk a dog on leash. The views of the city are very nice. The park is safe and there is no admission fee.

I have visited Palmer Park a few times and find a different trail each visit to take in another overview of gorgeous Colorado Springs. Great place to watch the balloon festival or AF Academy skydivers etc. Don't forget to take your camera or smartphone.
