The Garden of the Gods entrance was breathtaking! We ended up driving to the travel center to pick up a map of the walking trails. Pros: Trails for every kind of hiker and other ammenities offered like walking tours and horseback riding. Cons: There were times trails were either confusing or not marked well so we ended up a bit... More

Great views and the drive is nice. You can stop and take pictures from the pull outs. The trading post has all sorts of memorabilia.

Beautiful rock formations. Saw 4 or 5 climbers under good supervision. Easy walk to make on good paths. Saw some deer as well. Others in our party took the Segway tour and enjoyed it.

Garden of The Gods is an unbelievably beautiful place and speaks Colorado from the onset. From the rock formations to the fact that the trails are awesome for a leisurely walk or an intense run, this is one of those places you only need to see once to be memorable but return time and again because it is so breath...

Our visit was on a rainy day, and may have influenced my opinion. What we saw were unusual, interesting, delightful rock formations in small areas. However, driving all around, it seemed to be limited. Video was good.

A beautiful spot to visit when in the area. Definitely worth visiting. Family loved the unique formations and colors of the rocks. Great spot for climbers as well. Paths were easily accessible and easy. Kids thought it was amazing to see how the area was formed and took interest in the history. Worth the stop. Plan on spending a couple... More

What an amazing place to visit! The rock formations are breathtakingly beautiful. Words really can't do this place justice. Spend a day (or days) hiking, climbing, exploring, or riding. The views are incredible! A must visit on your trip to Colorado Springs!
