Directions to Palmer Lake Sante Fe Trailhead

Take I-25 to County Line Road (exit 163) and head west. Continue west for 2.5 miles and just before the railroad crossing, on the left, is the access to the parking lot and trailhead.

Directions and Parking

From Colorado Springs take I-25 N. Take exit 161 CO-105. Turn Left. Turn right at the 2nd cross street to stay on CO-105 W. Follow CO-105 to Palmer Lake.

The first Parking area will be just south of the lake at the Palmer Lake Baseball Diamond. You will be able to use the pedestrian bridge over the lake to get to the park and the start/finish area.

The 2nd parking area is located on the west side of the lake across the street from O'Malley's. Participants who park here must also use the pedestrian bridge to get to the start/finish area.

The 3rd parking area is located on the west side of the lake just past the Tri-Lakes Center of the Arts at the intersection of CO-105 and Page Street.

DO NOT CROSS THE RAILROAD TRACKS. We have been told by officials that anyone who crosses the tracks on foot will be ticketed and it is a federal crime to do so.
