Description: Some steep hills, with loose
rocks and gravel. About 3 miles in length.
Directions - On the west side of Colorado
Springs take Gold Camp Road to just before the
1st tunnel to find the trailhead. A metal sign
with “Multi-use Trail” is at the front of this
St. Charles Snowslide
Description: Mostly single track trails that
can be very difficult and technical – rocks,
roots, switchbacks, steep. A fun ride overall.
Going up St Charles trail and coming down the
Cisneros trail will bring you back to Lake
Isabel Recreation Area and ride on Hwy 165 can
get you back to your car or truck.
Directions - From Wetmore head southwest on 96
then south on 165 then 2-3 miles past Bishop’s
Castle is a small dirt parking lot on the left
or east side of the road. The trail is barely
noticeable on the right side of the road.
Texas Creek Riding Area
Description: The area is small enough that
it is not difficult to find your way around, but
large enough to provide a good half-day of
riding. Most of the trails are marked for use by
both quads and motorcycles. This area can be
ridden all year long but can have snow in the
winter and temperatures over the 100 degrees in
the summer. The terrain varies from novice to
intermediate skill levels. Several open areas
make this a great place to take the entire
family and let everyone learn to ride, or just
enhance their skills and have a good time.
Directions - coming - This network of jeep roads
and trails is located 25 miles west of Canon
City just off Highway 50. Turn north off of
Highway 50 beside the small store in the
community of Texas Creek. Cross the Arkansas
River bridge and the RR tracks, then turn to
follow the dirt road west 1/2 mile to the
parking area. Some primitive campsites are
available approximately 1 mile further on the
Woodland Park - 717 Trail System
Description: Almost half of the trails were
burnt in the Hayman fire – mostly the northwest
portion including the gulches (Hackett,
Longwater etc). Several miles of quad/motorcycle
trails remain. These trails are easy to
intermediate but fun to ride.
Directions - coming - Just west of Woodland Park on Hwy 24
turn right (north) at the light onto Trout Creek
road. The trailhead is about 2 miles in at a
dirt parking lot. Also going straight north of
Divide on Rule Ridge Road for several miles will
lead to several trails but many of these are in
the Hayman burn area.
