This is a great place to walk, hike, bike. The red rocks are so beautiful (similar to Garden of the Gods). There are well marked trails and hikes for every hiking level. There is also an off leash area for dogs.

Being from Florida this area was unbelievably beautiful! I had never seen anything like it. I took lots of beautiful pics but they are in another computer. My Brother even got married in Golden at a place with the Red Rocks behind a big plate glass window. I loved Colorado! And everyone seemed to be very happy there with a... More

Has great trails that lead all the way to Cheyenne Park North of Ft. Carson. There are multiple areas where one can view the city and mountains, which is unique. Is close by to HWY 24 and Old Colorado City, so it's easy to plan on one's way up the Ute Pass

This was a nice little area near Garden of the Gods, and was a little more private. Sort of a local park. Trails, a quarry, birds, etc. Nice couple hours of walking/hiking around.

Although not as showy as Garden of the Gods, had many beautiful vistas. The quarry area was interesting. Really appreciated the very good maps and signs making the hiking choices easy. They even tell you how long each leg of the hike is so you can decide how much or little you want to do at the time. Of note,... More

Great vistas, interesting formations and old quarry. Lovely ponds. Good photo ops. So many trails to explore. Didn't see any decent bathrooms, only porta-potties.
