Eagle’s View Trail located in Renoylds Park Open Space is a complete surprise when reaching the top of the loop. Unexpected gorgeous views of Colorado’s famous Pikes Peak and along the Rampart Range are incredible.

We started on Elkhorn Trail and headed to our right to find Eagle’s View Trail. First connecting to Raven’s Roost Trail then onto Eagle’s View Trail. A wide path on steep switchbacks sums up our hike most of the way up!

For the last 1/2 mile or so before reaching the overlook the trail becomes singletrack and beautiful as it winds through a dense forest.

 

 

Upon coming up to the ridge and just before reaching the scenic crest, the sky opens up with sweeping views in every direction. Honestly, I couldn’t believe how expansive it is.

 

 

 

 

VIEWS AS FAR AS PIKES PEAK

After the fairly steep uphill to reach this point, all is forgotten, and what a fantastic place to chill and take a break. Looking across the Rampart Range as far as Pikes Peak to the south and looking southwest towards Kenosha Pass.

 

 

Heading back down the loop we are surrounded by dense forest on a snow-lined path with fairly icy conditions, totally different than the hike up.

In winter and spring, icy conditions are common on Colorado trails close to the front range or in lower elevations. Parts of the trail will be clear from sun exposure, parts will be muddy, and parts of your hike extremely icy & snowy. Wearing spikes on your boots is highly recommended. They make for a much more enjoyable hike and most importantly keep you safer.

 


 

 

GET OUTSIDE YEAR ROUND HERE!

In conclusion, hiking Reynolds Park Open Space is a perfect get outside and enjoy nature day. Just enough uphill to get the muscles & heart pumped or easier trails for a gentle stroll. All with the added bonus of lush forests and views.
