One of the nice things about Colorado is the mid winter thaw. In may years there are a couple of periods where the weather gets up into the 40's, 50's and even some 60's..but beware because there is still some heavy winter weather ahead. So with this being the situation, I took the dog and header out to find a trail that I have not been on. With GPS unit, Camera, and Dog...we header over to Pulpit Rock to find some trails. Some of my research and examination of maps gave me good hope that this would have some good trails to follow and I was not disappointed.
The Pulpit rock area is dominated by a large rock formation and surronded by a lot of open space. Pulpit Rock is similar to Palmer Park, Garden of the Gods, and Red Rocks just not as well known and developed. It does have some improved trails and a host of smaller trails to choose from. I intend to check out more of them as time goes on.
Dedicated to Trail Running, Hiking, and Biking in the Colorado Springs and surrounding area. I will also comment at times on running and more specifically ultra-running when I have something I am interested in.
I am a long time runner with a passion for trails. I have been running marathons and ultra marathons for 30+ years. Age has crept up so I have scaled back my races but I still try to hit the trails almost every day. I have started mapping local trails on my website http://farrunner.com so people can see what is available in the Colorado Springs Area.
