Local community invited to celebrate opening of Legacy Plaza trailhead

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

The Colorado Springs community is holding an event to celebrate the opening of Legacy Plaza, the new trailhead for the Legacy Loop. The plaza will provide a gathering place for trail users and a staging area for special events like 5Ks and 10K races, biking events and community walks.

Residents can park at the Legacy Plaza to easy access to the Legacy Loop Trail, where previous parking was very limited. The location is right off I-25 at the Fontanero exit. 

The trailhead was funded by $1 million Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant, PPRTA, State Trails, the Greenway Fund and the Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) program.

The event is Thursday Nov 9., at 12:30 p.m. east of I-25 railroad tracks at Fontanero Street terminus, between Recreation Way and the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail. (Take the Fontanero Street exit off of I-25 and head east until it dead ends.) Map.
