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.

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.
