The best part is the natural beauty of the place. The worst part is the drive down from Denver on Interstate 25 which is WAY too crowded except between midnight and 4 a.m. Even at these hours it is crowded. The visitor center was being remodeled but was very nice.

I've never seen such red colored rock formations before. I was awestruck. You can drive through and get out at some vistas or you can park and take long nature walks. Some of the large rocks look like they might topple over. There is information placards that tell the history of how they were formed. There is a nice gift... More

The Garden of the Gods was a great experience, if not a bit crowded, especially around the Unbalanced Rock. The gift shop was very nice, and all of the attractions, rock formations, and hiking was superb. All in all, everything I expected from previous reviews and highly recommended.

When I told my friend I was coming to CO Springs for a visit, one of the things she said we had to do while I was in town was go to Garden of the Gods. I'm definitely glad we did. The rock formations are very beautiful, and as you drive through it you just get a ton of amazing... More

Loved the Garden of the Gods. A beautiful day...a beautiful place. A place to walk with the family, pet friendly. Scenic views, plenty of miles to walk in comfort. Rock climing. Picture taking. A great trip and don't forget to stop in the visitors center.

This is one of nature's reminders of just how great this earth is. Mostly left in it's natural state, the Garden is full of awesome rock formations and huge boulders that leave you wondering how they got there. The memory will stay with you for a very long time. Be sure to visit the Visitor & Nature Center.
