A challenging course that features views of Colorado Springs from High Drive.

Justin Ricks

Overview [Suggest Changes]

High Drive was constructed as a scenic drive, in the early 1900's, and its vistas are still as stunning.
Features: River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

Bear Creek has one of the last genetically pure greenback trout.

Description [Suggest Changes]

The race starts and finishes at Bear Creek Park and runs up to the top of High Drive. Be ready for a steady and challenging climb for the first half of the course as the climb is almost unrelenting until you hit the turn around point. From here, enjoy the downhill - you earned it!
