South Shore Trails
of
Lake Pueblo State Park
Colorado

This is a topographic map of the trail system in the south shore area of Lake Pueblo State Park in Colorado. All the trails are open to hikers and cyclists and many to equestrians.

Have you ever wondered what the area looks like while you are looking at a map? This product has eleven pictures for a visual guide to the trails and the environment.

We believe this is the most detailed and accurate map available of the trail system. We put a great deal of effort into making this map as accurate as possible.

The Trails

The trails in Lake Pueblo State Park provide something for everyone. Hike up to Arkansas Point for a great view or take an easy bike ride along Arkansas Point Trail or Conduit Trail. If you enjoy technical mountain bike rides, take one of the trails that drop off the mesa into the canyons. Some are very difficult and others aren't that difficult.

In general, the trails open to equestrians are from Pedros Point Trail eastward with the exception of technically difficult trails that drop off the mesa into the canyons. Some horses may have trouble with a few of the trails that have some short, rocky uphill/downhill sections such as the top end of Broken Hip Trail.

The trails are temporarily closed when muddy to keep them from being damaged. During and shortly after rain or melting snow, the trails are probably muddy and should be left alone. Hoofs, boots, and tires will sink in and make a very rough trail after the ground dries out, which it does quickly. Also, the mesa is not the place to be in a thunderstorm since lightning is a major danger.

It can be very hot in summer and a great place to ride on those "cold" winter days. So don't put that bike away in winter.
