Santa Fe Regional Trail

Jack AnthonyJack Anthony "loves running the trail and learning the long ago history" of the people and towns that once populated the area along the railroad track-bed that has become the New Santa Fe Regional Trail.

The link below will take you to a map and ten historical articles written by Jack for the Pikes Peak Road Runners. The 17-mile “History Trail Run” journey starts at the Woodmen Road trailhead of the Pikes Peak Greenway and then connects with the New Santa Fe Regional Trail at the southern boundary of the Air Force Academy and concludes at Palmer Lake. The final article is on the Greenland Loop, which is located north of Palmer Lake.
