The the Colorado Springs City Council has voted to allow public access to the Pikes Peak South Slope for recreation. The Colorado Springs Parks, Trails and Open Space department will manage it and most likely will include some kind of fee. Guided tours could begin as early as June.
The word I’ve heard is that the final plan doesn’t ban mountain bikes from the trails near the upper reservoirs. There is more of the history of opening Pikes Peak South Slope and about the draft plan that was released in January on UltraRob.com. The final plan will be release at a public meeting 5 p.m. April 27 at the Leon Young Service Center, 1521 Hancock Expressway.
