If you have ever wondered about that big mountain looming over town, you'll find a couple of trails to its summit. Lovers of geology can explore incredible sandstone formations in the Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Open Space, or the smooth granite of the Lost Creek Wilderness. For the less experienced, start with the Greenway Trail that winds its way along Monument Creek through downtown. On the other hand, if you have a good deal of hiking experience you can try the Barr Trail to the top of Colorado's Pikes Peak—14 miles of steep hiking that is not easy, nor particularly accessible.
