One of the coolest (literally) of the Colorado Springs hiking trails, and one of the best-kept secrets. This is a unique 2-mile hike near Glen Eyrie that meanders through a steep canyon, gains 400 feet of vertical, and ends up at the punch bowls-- five granite bowls filled with mountain water. Excellent hike for a hot summer day. Jump into the bowls and go for a swim.
Make a s'mores box to store all of your supplies! So annoying to juggle the pack of crackers, the sticky bag of marshmallows, the candy bar... It won't change the world, but it will simplify my camping!
