The versatility and accessibility of this park is what puts it at the top of my list, personally. Whether you prefer trails, pavement, or even crushed gravel; Spring Canyon has it all. There are trails that start from the park and go toward Pineridge natural area as well as through Maxwell Natural Area and up to Horsetooth. In addition to the trails, the paved Spring Creek Trail around the park stretches for miles on either side of the park (about 12 miles). Although it can get busy when the weather is nice, the perks of having readily available bathrooms and free parking makes it worth it, plus, it’s only a 10-minute drive from Runners Roost!
