Situated just south of Colorado Springs and considered one of the "crown jewels" in Colorado's extensive state park system, Cheyenne Mountain State Park represents the protection of one of the last significant open spaces along the southern section of the Colorado Front Range.
The 1680 acres of the park lie beneath the eastern flank of Cheyenne Mountain, and border the plains of Colorado in a stunning transition from plains to peaks. The land is in remarkable natural condition and diverse wildlife viewing opportunities.
Cheyenne Mountain offers superior facilities and recreational opportunities. Foremost among the park's offerings is the trail system consisting of 20 miles of hiking and biking trails. These pathways allow visitors ample opportunities to explore the park's natural beauty and discover the park's many wild inhabitants. Due to the park's diverse wildlife and fragile eco-systems, dogs are not permitted on the trails. Leashed pets are welcomed in the park's developed areas, which include the campgrounds and picnic areas.
