This trail continues to deteriorate. The pavement is rough and cracked. The dirt trail to the north and south is in bad shape. North of the Air Force academy it has deep sand and decomposed granite. The newest section of the legacy trail is full of ruts, muddy and very narrow in areas. I have attached three pictures of homeless camps within a half mile to one mile from the goose gossage parking lot. What a terrible trail.

Started from the Park and Ride lot at the North end of the trail near Woodmen Road and road the trail to downtown. The first 1.5 miles are very rough from tree root damage and a challenge on road bikes. It then turns into a nice concrete section for about the next 3 miles and then to gravel all the way to downtown. The gravel section is doable but really not great on road bikes. You will need to slow down to stay upright. The trail follows a stream which quite frankly smells awful. As you near downtown you go through a small park which seems to be a place where a quite a few homeless people set up camp. It definitely had a sketchy feel to it. This trail really is not on par with other trails we have ridden here in Colorado. I would look for somewhere else first.

It's nice to have this trail running the N-S length of the city. Some stretches of the trail are far better than others, sometimes due to how well the trail is maintained, but more often due to where the homeless and air-fouling pot smokers are hanging out.

This is one of the worst trails I have biked on in the entire state. The pavement north of the Costco bridge is vey rough as is the pavement under I25 and north of Criterium bike shop. They should just get rid of the pavement it would be better. It smells of sewage in several spots a long the trail. If you go south of America the Beautiful Park there are a lot of homeless camps with trash and loose dogs. I no longer ride to south end of the trail. It goes from nowhere to nowhere, typical of Springs trails. Broken glass in several areas . If you ride in Douglas, Parker or Boulder County you see that great trails are possible, just not in Colorado Springs. I live here so I have to ride it.
