Shooks Run Homes for Sale

Downtown Colorado Springs Map

Shooks Run is a community within the downtown Colorado Springs area. One of the notable things about this neighborhood is the Shooks Run Trail. This trail runs north to south along Shooks Run Creek near downtown Colorado Springs. Before the city of Colorado Springs was established in 1871, the small creek that empties into Fountain Creek was given the name Shooks Run after the brothers Peter and Denton Shooks started their ranch in 1865 that included the stream which travels north up the creek to present-day Fountain Boulevard.

Shooks Run Trail is one of the easier bike paths in the area, running slightly downhill from north to south. The trail gets plenty of sunshine even during the winter and a favorite among families, connecting the downtown with neighborhoods along a safe corridor. This trail also offers a gravel path for running. If you are looking for more distance, the trail meets up with the Rock Island Trail two blocks north of Jackson Street and one block east of Nevada Avenue (behind the Bon Shopping Center between Wahsatch and Weber). The southern part of Shooks Run will soon connect with the Pikes Peak Greenway.
