The Sante Fe Trail is a trail system I’ve blogged on in the past. On this day, I was in awe of the beauty in this section that runs through the Air Force Academy. Just look at these photos and you will agree!
We picked up the trail near the South Gate entrance, of the Air Force Academy. From there we headed north on the dirt and gravel road.The road is quite curvy, and even has blind corners to be aware of, as mountain bike enthusiasts may blast past you. The course also has some steep hills and can challenge the trail runner in you.🏃🏽♀️🏃🏻♂️!!
The views are amazing, especially when headed south. In this direction , Pikes Peak plus surrounding fields with wild flowers fill the atmosphere. A pond near the South Gate trail head is a refreshing sight as well. The bird life was also a bonus .
A beautiful day for a gorgeous run…. hopefully you get a chance to experience this! I recommend it!
Sharing smiles and beautiful miles!
