They we didn't take the time to explore all of the neat formations, we did drive through. Beautiful and clean park. The gift shop was great. Wish we had the time to walk and explore.

This park is right in Colorado Springs, very easy to get to, plenty of parking and makes for a nice place to walk to get away from the city without having to leave the city.

We enjoyed the scenery. It was not as big as we had expected. Very nice and well worth the drive. This was my second time to visit. The price was right (free). We did not go to the visitor center, due to some congestion there, but have heard good things about it.

This is a don't miss when visiting Colorado Springs. Fourth time at park and I always see something new that I missed before. Brought my high school cross-country team out to run trails and they made memories of a lifetime.

Great views, very unique formations. We went on horseback and learned a little about the history of the area too.

One of the best free attractions you can visit in Colorado! The rocks are beautiful! I like how you can take your time, play on the rocks, take pictures and just enjoy nature! They have a lot of trails and rocks to climb. You can shop at the visitor’s center and another shop about half way through the park. Bring... More

We visited this many years ago. Then, most of the climbers were free climbing. Not allowed any more. We were able to watch some rock climbing classes as they took on a couple of easier climbs. The paths were smooth. No problems except the heat, and that's certainly nothing anyone can control. This is always a red rock beauty of... More

This free area gets very crowded. When you arrive, you drive on a one-way circle around the "rock area". The first pull-off is for the "main" parking area. I saw many people circling around this small lot waiting for a spot to open up. If you keep driving around the large circle, you will find other lots on the other... More

Wasn't so sure about it but it was a great hike even though we didn't go really far in. But it was a pretty hot day. Bedt time to go is late afternoon. Not at the very heat of the day and easier to find a parking space. We had tried to go a few days earlier and really couldn't... More
