Getting There

Option 1:

Take the Woodmen Road exit from Interstate 25 and head west. After a short distance you will have to turn right to stay on Woodmen Road - going straight here mysteriously puts you on Rockrimmon Boulevard. Once you turn right on Woodmen Road simply follow it to near the high point of the road at the base of Blodgett Peak. The Blodgett Peak Open Space is located on the west side of Woodmen Road at the base of Blodgett Peak.

Option 2:

From Colorado Springs, take I-25 north to the Garden of the Gods Exit. Exit west. Heading west, turn right at Centennial Boulevard. Head north on Centennial. After passing Vindicator Road, Centennial Boulevard will turn into Woodmen Road. Continue on Woodmen Road, Blodgett Peak Open Space will be on the left-hand side of the road.


Destinations accessible from the Blodgett Peak Open Space

Blodgett Peak is one of the tougher foothill climbs in the Pikes Peak Region - nothing to technical - just steep with some confusing route finding. The views from the summit are definitely worth the effort on this one.
