Description

The Palmer Point Trail is rated as a blue (using the park's green/blue/black rating system) trail that loops around the north part of the park. It offers up a decent 4.1 mile hike full of great scenery and potential wildlife viewing (deer, etc.) It's a fairly easy hike-while there are quite a few short climbs, there are also many flat spots. The trail also has some technical, rocky sections and both rock and wooden step ups/drop offs. If you're hiking counter-clockwise, when you get to the North Canon trailhead off Paseo, you'll have to cross the street and hike east on the Grandview Trail for a bit, the Palmer Point Trail will pick up again just south of the Lazy Land Picnic Area entrance after you cross the road. All in all, it's a pretty cool little hike, and easy enough for a novice.

With very few mild technical sections, this trail is really more a nice nature walk than a real hike, but it allows you to get in about four miles. It also offers up some nice views of Pikes Peak.

I mostly use this one as a way to get to other, harder trails within the park. It's a fun hike, but not as challenging as some other Palmer Park trails. It's a good beginner trail.
