We started on Elkhorn Trail and headed to our right to find Eagle’s View Trail. We first connected 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 before reaching the overlook, Eagles View, the trail becomes singletrack and beautiful as it winds through a dense pine forest lined with moss-covered rocks and lumpy roots.

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.

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 down the loop, the trail is a narrow, shaded forest woodland zig-zagging down the mountain. Upon reaching the turn to Oxen Draw Trail, the hike becomes a fairyland of lush green moss, water-crossings, and small waterfalls. 

In conclusion, hiking Reynolds Park Open Space is a perfect way to enjoy nature outside. Just enough uphill to get the muscles & heart pumped, or take an easy trail for a gentle stroll — all with the bonus of lush forests, summer wildflowers, and views.
