Colorado Springs is a great place for hiking! You’re close to many Colorado State Parks, including Aiken Canyon Natural Area,  (http://parks.state.co.us/NaturalResources/CNAP/NaturalAreasInfo/AlphabeticalListing/AikenCanyon.htm) Mueller State Park and Wildlife Area (http://www.ohranger.com/co/mueller) and Pike National Forest (http://www.ohranger.com/comanche-cimarron-natl-grasslands).

The wildlife preserve at Aiken Canyon is a great place to watch for animals, as it is home to bear, mountain lion, elk, mule deer, bobcat, fox, squirrels and rattlesnakes.

The Dome Rock Trail at Mueller State Park and Wildlife Area is another great place to see wildlife, especially bighorn sheep!

Steve Garufi, a Colorado resident, has made a great list of local Colorado Springs hikes, which is available at http://www.stevegarufi.com/colorado-springs-hikes.htm.
