      Palmer Park is a technical rocky maze located in the center of Colorado Springs. There is flow to be had here but piecing together a good route requires experience and knowledge of the trails. The signage is terrible and there are unmarked spur trails everywhere just waiting to get you lost or turned around. However, with all that being said there are still some fun trails in this park with technical rocks, roots, and drops that pop up out of nowhere. Ride with a local to find some flow in this park. Beware this park is heavily used thus there are hikers, horses, and dogs most trails so keep your speed in check.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Land Status: City Managed
