Runner Notes

Super easy, this flat or very gently sloping trail is great to get in the zone and grind.

Description

This 10 plus mile trail starts at the Seymore Clay Trailhead near the El Pomar Youth Sports complex in Colorado Springs and runs along the banks of Fountain Creek. This doubletrack trail is great for all levels of fitness and draws pedestrians and bikers alike. There are a few detours along they way for sections that have been washed out.
