What is the Legacy Loop?
Legacy Loop is a comprehensive, collaborative community trails and parks development initiative encircling the downtown area of Colorado Springs. Led by the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Department and its primary partner, The Greenway Fund, the goal is to create a continuous greenway loop surrounding the core area of the city, capitalizing on recreational opportunities within and along our system of creeks. Inspired by the 100-year-old vision of Colorado Springs founder, General William Jackson Palmer, this project will improve access to outdoor recreation, increase trail connectivity, make the most of our waterway assets, and enhance parks for our families by creating a nearly 10-mile (16k) loop with no street crossings - a safe and beautiful trail system for our city.
Future Legacy Loop Projects
The Legacy Loop will be constructed in a series of phases. Initial infrastructure projects to be completed over the next three years. They are located in the north and northwest portions of the ten-mile Legacy Loop and will create significant trail connections from the Rock Island Trail to the Pikes Peak Greenway on the north end of Monument Valley Park. Enhancements for trailheads and underpasses will also create greater access to Monument Creek.
