For a change of pace, trot or canter, horse lovers at times leave their equine real estate in Denver and Douglas County and head south to investigate trails near Colorado Springs.  This is a great way for families, clubs, and organizations such as 4-H to get in one-day trips.  To find your own Colorado Springs or Denver horse property, click here.

Riding horses along the variegated terrain of the Pikes Peak area proves itself scenic and interesting for all equestrian skill levels.  Try these rides: United States Air Force Academy (USAFA), Bear Creek Park, Black Forest Trails, Indian Creek, Lakewood/Bear Creek State Park, Mount Herman Trails, Mueller State Park, and Santa Fe Regional Trail. 

At the U.S. Air Force Academy, the miles of trails through the wildflowers with the backdrop of the Colorado Rocky Mountains is something special.  Enter the USAFA through the South Gate and drive north to Pine Drive, turning left at blinking light at Pine Loop.  Turn right on the first street and continue to the sign that says stables.  Turn left and continue to the end of the road and turn right.  Trailer-in parking is available by the hay barn.  The multi-use Santa Fe Regional Trail extends from the Air Force Academy.

Also ask about Douglas County equestrian real estate in Sedalia!  Ten miles along on Highway 67, a winding road west of Sedalia, is Indian Creek.  This is an equestrian camping area maintained by the State of Colorado.  Mueller State Park can be accessed by taking Highway 24 to Divide and turning south for a couple of miles.  Bear Creek Park is next to Penrose Equestrian Center.  To reach the facilities, drive west on Highway 24, south on Eighth Street, and west on Rio Grande.  Lakewood/Bear Creek State Park is off Interstate 470 at Highway 8/Morrison Road.

There are also numerous trails through the tall pine trees in Black Forest.  One local recommends Partnership Trail, a 60-90 minute ride. 

Equestrian trails in the Pikes Peak region are safely maintained.  Horseback riders are asked to observe a few rules of etiquette.  This means cleaning up after one’s equine friends, i.e. in parking areas, or facing fines.  It also means bringing certified weed-free hay or pelletized feed, cleaner varieties required in many public parks and forests.  Finally, equine enthusiasts are asked to leave gates in the position they find them.

This list of suggestions is by no means complete but we hope it gets you started on some galloping adventures with your horses.
