Fox Run Regional Park

Fox Run is a ponderosa pine forest with two tiny ponds that are affectionately referred to as lakes. I hiked through the woods around three sides of the park, then cut into the center to hike up a hill.


The “lakes” were frozen over. Here’s Spruce Lake.

Another shot of Spruce Lake. The hill in the center of the park can be seen in the right background.


At the top, a few trees were cleared to give a view of Pikes Peak.

And that was pretty much it. It was pretty and uncrowded, but there wasn’t too much to it—except that I did spot my lifer Abert’s Squirrel as it dashed through the woods. I probably walked 80% of the trails and had a hard time totaling five miles.
