Latest Updates: Legacy Loop

Legacy Loop is an approximately 10 mile trail, park and recreation loop around downtown Colorado Springs defined by the Pikes Peak Greenway on the west and south, the Shooks Run trail on the east, and the Rock Island Corridor to the north.  It is a way to connect, create, and protect our community value, inspired by the legacy and vision of Colorado Springs’ founder General William Jackson Palmer. Palmer’s dream was of a vibrant, livable city where the essential functions of mobility and access are linked to our parks, open space and trails.
