Overview

Jogging path that passes Colorado College, sports fields, tennis courts, and public swimming pool. Very good place for speed work as it is relatively flat, free of obstacles, and 99% packed dirt. The path is certainly NOT a wilderness trail, it is part of an urban park.

Need to Know

Multiple restrooms along the path.

Description

There are multiple connectors and places to park in Monument Valley Park. This GPS track starts from the connector with Williamette St. and runs counter-clockwise. From Williamette, take the path North, cross over Cache la Pudre St., go under the Uintah St. Underpass, and stay left along the bluff overlooking the creek.

Make a left turn when the path T's at a bridge and take another left after the bridge. The main path is paved for about a kilometer, but there is a dirt path adjacent to it. Continue south and stay left along the bluff overlooking the creek. Directly after some sports fields, turn left on another bridge and turn left after the bridge to return to Williamette.
