I had a few hours of daylight after work commitments were completed, so a colleague graciously introduced me to a stunning wonder. The rock formations of the Garden of the Gods were still snow capped, but was no less majestic. We strolled through the beautiful scenery, and I marvelled at the wildlife - we saw magpies, long horned sheep, falcon... More

I don't have the words to do this park justice! Breathtaking. There's no charge but get there early during peak season because the parking lot fills up fast. We spent quite a few hours with our little granddaughters and they didn't want to leave! Bring a picnic lunch because there are quite a few little area's to either hike to... More

Having never been in Colorado before, this was one of the first places we went to. It was stunning. We lucked out and went on a picture perfect day - October and in the 70's. The colors were amazing, the paths easy to walk and not too many people that time of year.

Garden of the Gods is part of the Colorado Springs city parks. It is a beautiful area of reddish rock formations. They also have living history museum here. (Rock Ledge Ranch) Many people enjoy hiking at the park, a few have tried to climb on the formations. Unless you are and experienced rock climber and have registered with the park... More

I never tire of walking around this beautiful site. There may be other places similar but I've never seen them. The interesting rock formations are even better with the colorful aspect.

Very cool to see. You can take as little or as much time as you want to explore this area. I didn't time it but you can drive through it about 15-20 minutes if you just want to see what it's about. There are trails that you can explore and if weather & time permits, DO IT!

Garden of the Gods is a beautiful place to visit. It is full with beautiful views! Great place to hike, have a picnic, spend quality time with loved ones. Very family friendly. The trading post is great to shop for souvenirs and get a snack. Make sure to take a look at the back patio they have there. This is... More

I visited this place with my wife (accompanied by our daughter and son-in-law who have just moved to Colorado Springs). We arrived here in the late afternoon on a sunny day and it was beautiful. The rocks were bathed in the rays of the setting sun which really showed them off to their best. Unfortunately, I have bad arthritis in... More
