Garden of the Gods is a beautiful park that is set up specifically for hikers and bicyclists. It is also dogs-on-leash friendly. Unfortunately, if you have health issues, like my husband who has RA and back problems, you're not going to get to do much except drive in circles hoping to snag one of the very few parking spots close...

From the visitor center to the Garden itself, this is so interesting and beautiful. We loved walking the trails and seeing the wonders of nature. Everyone is the family enjoyed it!

Garden of the Gods was a great experience. You can either drive through it or walk through it or even take a Segway through it. There are also Jeep tours etc... but the most efficient is to take your own car. Once you park at any of the locations you walk and hike up and through the trails. It was... More

Garden of the Gods is a unique and wonderful place. Don't just drive through. Get out and walk around. The rock formations are very impressive, but we also saw a wide variety of birds and flowers, and some deer, as well. Best of all, it's free!

Even on a miserably hot, sunny day, garden of the gods was so worth going to see! Beautiful red rocks and trails to hike among them. The cafe at the guest center had some cool things, but VERY expensive. 2 large bottles of water = $7.50 ouch

As a resident of Colorado Springs I have been to Garden of the Gods numerous times. I love to run the trails at dawn or dusk. About 70% of the time when I am there I see larger wildlife, such as mule deer, elk, or bighorns. The rock formations vary in color based on the amount of sunlight and the... More

We love to take day hikes in the Garden of the Gods. Incredible natural beauty, and interesting trails through the rock formations. The terrain varies from easy to moderate but you can mix it up for longer hikes by combining trails.

Lovely place, wish I had more time there. They offer free walking tours, and there is no entrance fee.

Red rocks rival Sedona, just not as grand scale. Don't miss 15 minute movie in visitor center...explains all for only $4 and well worth it since the park is free to all! Ten mile loop with many parking areas for short hikes (don't miss the Siamese Twins!), and long hikes if you want! Then head to Manitou Springs for restaurants... More
