What’s a hike without the presence of natural beauty to keep you going? The Devil’s Bridge Trails offers an abundance of it all through the hike. But the main highlight of the hike has to be the awe-inspiring sight of the bridge towards the end, which is the largest natural sandstone arch in the area.

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. How did I not know about this?
