Well organised, clean and very interesting. Easy access if you just want to drive but plenty of parking if you want to hike around.

My husband and I recently made our dream trip to Colorado. A co-worker told me about Garden of the Gods so I made sure we put that on our list of things to do. I am so glad we went because it was absolutely beautiful. Although it was lightly raining when we went, the colors of the formations were vivid.... More

Should have gone earlier in day and would have liked to have stayed longer. VERY crowded. We started out at the visitor center there to get maps of the trails. that was very helpful. I wished I could have stayed longer but my ride wanted to leave. Must see if you are in CO Springs!!!

There are several ways to experience this gorgeous park. You can drive through very easily. The road makes a circle through the whole park. You can get out and walk around the monuments and some people rock climb here. It's conveniently located in Colorado Springs and close to Pikes Peak.

While visiting Manitou Springs, CO. we decided to pass thru Garden of the Gods. The red rock formations are beautiful and there are many trails to walk through. It was just OK, don't have much more to add.

Garden of the Gods is a must see if you travel to/through the Colorado Springs area! It is quickly apparent why the park is named as such; the rock formations are stunning and can bring on a spiritual experience if you are open to it. I was expecting a hike through the park but it was actually more of a... More

Do not miss this amazing display of God's handiwork! Drive around the edge of the park to see the rocks in differing lighting, and then park in the main lot to see them up close. There were quite a few climbers (permits required) testing multiple summits. This wonderful experience is possible because of the generosity of the children of Charles... More

I know this is an overused superlative, but what else can you say about these very unusual formations with so many shapes and color variations. Not to be missed!! We keep coming back on every visit to the area.
