Several trails with beautiful views. No charge for parking. We hiked for over 2 hours and could have easily did much more!

Don't have a lot of time? No worries! You can easily drive through the Garden of the Gods. But I highly recommend a slower and longer visit...and if you have the time, doing a guided horseback ride through the park.

Beautiful park makes for a spectacular day for the whole family. No need to "book a tour". There is a simple road loop that takes you through the park. Admission is free. I like the visitors' center and the inexpensive movie explaining the geology. Once driving through the park, one can access the lot and walk the sidewalks to see... More

I had some friends come into town and we didn't have a lot of time to see the sights so we chose the visit here. We started in the visitor center then drove through the park because it was raining. It was well worth our time. This park does not charge for visiting. There are a lot of hiking trails... More

Take as much or as little time as you wish viewing these incredible rock formations. Because it is a city park,there was not an admission charge...totally amazing! If you are visiting Colorado Springs, do not miss this attraction!

The City Park is free, and has a newly remodeled visitor center. Despite record-breaking rain, we enjoyed a walk on a paved trail next to very impressive red rock formations.

Best part of Colorado Springs. Go on bicycle if you can, it's worth taking your time going through it.

We visited thrGarden of Gods on route elsewhere so drive around the loop rather than doing any walking. This in itself was great as the landscape is amazing. There are spots where you can pull over to take photos as well. We saw lots of people walking and it was good to see.

If you are going to colorado this place is a must see! It was so beautiful. We hiked around it a bit, There are small formations almost anyone could climb on or bigger ones for the more daring! We went on a weekday and there was not too many people there which was nice. Great photo opportunities.
