Trails - Eleven Mile State Park provides its visitors with nearly five miles of scenic hiking, biking and horseback riding trails all located in the Coyote Ridge/Backcountry area. Click here to access the Eleven Mile Trail System Map. Motorized vehicles are permitted only on designated roads, not on trails.

The Coyote Ridge Interpretive Trail is 1.35 miles in length. It is a self-guided nature trail loop that departs from the Coyote Ridge parking lot and winds its way along a low ridge. The trail is actually split into two loops (Ponderosa and Aspen) that join in the middle to form a figure eight. Hiking this easy trail at a leisurely pace through the several micro-ecosystems found in the hills and meadows takes about an hour. The trail was constructed in June 2000 due to the efforts of the Volunteers of Outdoor Colorado (VOC) and the Youth Corp.

Park interpreters also use the Coyote Ridge Interpretive Trail for guided nature hikes. The park interpreter leads several guided hikes through this area each summer.

The Black Bear Trail travels around the perimeter of the Backcountry camping area and is approximately 0.6 miles in length. This trail explores the beautiful backcountry peninsula as it winds its way through the 25 secluded backcountry campsites. This trail is classified as moderate and requires about 3/4 of an hour to complete at a fast pace. The trail consists of a few areas that require a scramble across bare rock or up uneven stone steps.

The third trail loop in this area is the Midland Trail that begins at the far north end of the Interpretive Trail's Aspen Loop and connects to the east side of the Ponderosa Loop. This new section of trail adds 2.9 miles to the existing trail system and is classified as easy to moderate (it has a few small hills to climb). It requires about 1.25 hour to walk in addition to the time required getting to and from it on the other trails.
Directions - 38 miles west of Colorado Springs on U.S. 24 to one mile west of the town of Lake George, then turn left (south) on County Road 90 and drive for six miles to County Road 92. Continue south on 92 for five miles to the park.
