Hike Pulpit Rock

Pulpit Rock Trail Parking - Search Nearby - Added by Billy DiMirra

A hidden gem in the Colorado Springs area. The park is a network of a various small trails, with the highlight being the climb to the Pulpit Rock ridge line. The top provides beautiful views Downtown Colorado Springs, the surrounding City, and Pikes Peak.

Heading South on N. Nevada Blvd. you will pass a Harley Davidson dealership on your left, about a mile after that there is a large parking lot for Pulpit Rock Park. Once you park, there is a clearly marked trailhead that will get you on your way! There are various trails you can take to get the top of Pulpit Rock, some of which will take you in a loop if you choose, or you can go out and back. The hike to the top of Pulpit is about a mile from the parking lot (the loop ending up being about 4 miles). Its a pretty easy hike great for all ages and skill levels.

Some of the side trails are pretty uphill, but the main trails are insanely easy. it's fun to climb on the rocks and the views are awesome. all in all the hike is pretty rewarding.
