It’s just too convenient: Next to Cheyenne Mountain High School there is the Stratton Open Spaces which lead up to the Chutes, and then going further up to Gold Camp Rd and eventually even higher to Capt. Jacks all the way at the top.Cheyenne Mountain - Stratton Open Spaces Running Colorado Springs We weren’t too ambitious and I had to get back to work at some point. We decided to simply run over and up the Chutes to Gold Camp Rd and back down.

We have done this run so many times – we have ridden our bikes up and down this area, for years now, and it does not get boring to us. A beautiful morning like that riding or running beats a day in the gym any time.top of Chutes at High Drive Colorado Springs
