The Upper Reservoir and Loop Trail in Palmer Lake, Colorado

The hike up to the Palmer Reservoirs is a "must see" experience. There is an option to visit Cap Rock, and complete the loop, which joins the original trail just above the Lower Reservoir. A short walk into this hike it’s easy to see why it’s a favorite of the locals. You are immediately immersed in the beauty of the Rampart Range, just west of Palmer Lake.

You will have the opportunity to see two Reservoirs, Ice Caves, a massive boulder pile up, and spectacular views. All of this while surrounded by the majestic Pine and Fir Forest, with a few Aspen tucked in. You can smell the pine trees throughout the trails in the Spring and Summer months.
