Chamberlain Trail

Details

The Broadmoor will grant to the City of Colorado Springs trail easements across three properties owned by the Broadmoor, located in proximity to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.  What will be achieved?

 

Secure trail easements for the future development of the Chamberlain Trail and Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Trail.  These easements will support key segments of the Chamberlain Trail that will provide a unique back country trail experience along the City’s foothills, ultimately connecting Cheyenne Mountain State Park, North Cheyenne Cañon, Stratton Open Space, Bear Creek Regional Park, Red Rock Canyon Open Space and Garden of the Gods Park.  This alignment will also advance the future development of the Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Trail, envisioned to circumnavigate the base of Cheyenne Mountain.  This trail will complement the Ring the Peak Trail, ultimately creating a unique “figure eight” of back country trail opportunities.
