Ring the Peak Trail 
 Trails and Open Space Coalition and FOTP are working together on the initiative to complete the trail. Trails and Open Space Coalition hired a contractor to plan, coordinate, and present a way ahead for completing the trail on the southwest side of the mountain.

Our goals are:
  • To provide a unified, pro-active voice for the preservation and restoration of the natural environment of Pikes Peak,
  • To promote and enhance recreational opportunities and visitor experiences that are in harmony with the natural environment of Pikes Peak,
  • To promote and participate in research and solutions for the sound stewardship of Pikes Peak,
  • To promote awareness of and education about Pikes Peak.

We accomplish these goals by partnering with the U.S. Forest Service, Colorado Springs Parks and Recreation, the Pikes Peak Highway, El Paso County Parks, Colorado Springs Utilities, and other volunteer and Friends organizations.
