It was raining when we got here so we did a drive through and then stopped at the visitor center. Great stop as we saw a few Elk. The scenery is breathtaking. You can't get a bad photo. Wish we could have walked around, but the lightning was active.

The garden of the gods is a must watch...period. The majestic views and the amazing rock formations makes us believe...the God is the ultimate architect. The kissing camel is just a cherry on top of this magnanimous natural wonder. We loved it.

Do the research online and know what you are doing before you get there. If all you want to do is see the paved path stuff, you can be in and out in an hour. If you want to hike, make sure you have a map to hike around.

Wind through the path of these amazing formations on a nice wide sidewalk like path. It's stroller friendly with plenty of outcroppings for toddlers to run, play and explore the rocks. The kids fell asleep shortly after we left, and we weren't tired from chasing, piggy backs and whining about hand holding. Don't miss the trading post at the back... More

Excellent attraction. Discount price available to veterans. Guide was very good. Good value. Did Discovery tour. Tour size was limited so you could always hear the guide.

A fabulous drive/hike/walk - the best part is there is no cheezy gimick to get you in, just some amazing rock formations....

Beautiful, amazing rock formations, you can spend as much or as little time as you want there. You can drive thru, walk, hike around, stop and take photos, whatever you are able and interested in doing.
