Palmer Lake Reservior Trail - Winter Hike
Palmer Reservior Trails are great. It was even better in the snow. I would not drive up there. I guess its open to the that but the road is falling off. The trek is about 2 miles. You will see folks walking their dogs up, fishers trekking to the top to catch a perch. I even saw bikers. The incline is not that bad. Check out the other page, when I hiked it in the summer. There are many details about the hike with directions on how to get there. I really enjoyed this one.
Palmer Lake/Monument is located North-West of Colorado Springs. To find our hike, Palmer Lake Lower and Upper Reservoir, you head north up Interstate 25 to Exit 161 and head West into Palmer Lake. After you pass the town sign, you have about three miles. Continue down the main drag for a while. On your left, you will pass Vail Rd; you are going to take the next left onto South Valley Road. Not to far up, you will turn left again on Old Carriage Road. Head down the hill. You will see parking down on the right.
