“A paved, family-friendly trail running north from Woodland Park.”— Mikhaila Redovian
The first two miles of the Centennial Trail runs through north Woodland Park along Highway 67 before leaving the town. Mountain meadows full of wildflowers and pine forests are beautiful in the spring, summer and fall. The trail gently descends for the next four miles.
At mile 6.2, the trail crosses under Highway 67 to the west side. Various campgrounds are near the trail. Views of Trout Creek are seen from this side of the trail as well.
At mile 8.5, the trail ends at Manitou Lake Picnic Area. There is a fee for parking at this end. The Manitou Lake Trail #670 can be taken at the end as well, if you'd prefer a longer hike.
