Great American Eclipse Guided Hike
90 percent coverage! In a State Park! Join us for a guided hike to the amphitheater for spectacular viewing.
On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people from across the world will gather to witness one of nature’s most breathtaking sights: a total solar eclipse.
The last one spotted in the continental United States took place in 1979. This one will carve a path across the entire country – and in Colorado Springs we’ll get about 90% coverage during the height of the eclipse.
As you’re deciding exactly where you want to view the eclipse, keep our Colorado state parks in mind. They’re some of the most beautiful areas in the state, and there’s plenty to do when you’re not busy eclipse-viewing.
At Cheyenne Mountain State Park, there’s 21-plus miles of trails to hike, bike, and explore. A guided hike will be provided during the first half of the eclipse on Raccoon Ridge and Boulder Run trails. We’ll end our hike up at the park’s amphitheater where the maximum coverage of the sun can be viewed unobstructed.
Feel free to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy while taking in the sights and sounds the park has to offer as well as the eclipse.
*Eclipse glasses will be available at the park while supplies last; bring your own to ensure you’ll have a pair for safe viewing. Reservations are required for the hike as space is limited. Viewing of the eclipse at the amphitheater will not require reservations.
