The hike at Eagle’s View Trail at Reynolds Park Open Space Park offers a variety of terrain, with a winding trail through meadow and forest taking hikers to the big payoff at the Eagle’s View point – views!
From the parking lot, take Oxen Draw Trail to Eagle’s View trail. The trail begins as it passes by several picnic tables near the creek and through a grassy meadow that blooms with a medley of wildflowers. It continues up a gentle incline through Aspen and pine trees making this a shady and pleasant hike. There are a couple sections of trail that are slightly steep and require some climbing over rocks.
As the trail climbs, it eventually comes out of the trees and reaches the lookout point. Here are the panoramic views of the foothills and Pikes Peak! It’s a good place to picnic and rest while looking out at the mountains. The trail then continues past the lookout area and loops back to Raven’s Roost trail junction leading back to the parking lot.
Grab a park map at the trailhead.
Restrooms available at the trailhead.
Picnic site recommendations:
Depending on the type of picnic you like, there are two choice areas to dine. If you like a BBQ grill and creek side tables, there are several at the trailhead. If you prefer a lighter lunch with amazing mountain views, the top of Eagle’s View trail is a great option. There’s space enough for kids to run around and grassy seating for your picnic.
