Very picturesque place with trails (walking, bike or dog) for all skill levels. My family had a great time exploring. Be sure to bring plenty of water and stay hydrated. We had a little excitement during our visit. There were other visitors enjoying the lake by diving from high rocks!

With several formations throughout the red rock canyon, this is a great hiking experience and place for your imagination to wander.

On the way to the mountains, or heading back to the Front Range, this is a great spot to stop and hike or bike. Also some of the best climbing in the Springs

Had a wonderful time hiking the trails here. The maps supplied were a little confusing but the trails were mostly easy and interesting. The rock formations were beautiful and were nice to view from multiple angles. There was a large number of people out walking their dogs, riding bikes, and walking. Great park. Be sure to park near the middle.... More

Hiked a little more than 6 miles and still didn't hike all the trails. Very beautiful place to hike, bike or travel on horseback.

Beautiful, easy hiking trails and good for kids too. Its on the highway, though the access from the city could be better if there was a signal instead of yield crossing on this busy highway.

This park is worth a visit if you enjoy hiking. We were only able to drive around a little because some of the roads were closed. My Mom is disabled and I'm not very active. We literally only spent five minutes here. We enjoyed Garden of the Gods MUCH better. Bear Creek Nature Center, Red Rock Canyon, and Garden of... More

I spent the summer in Colorado Springs and hiked multiple area trails. Red Rock Canyon became my favorite and I returned here weekly. The trails are very well maintained and more importantly, well marked. They are all connected, so one can experience different vistas with each visit. If you are a photographer, the opportunities for outstandingl pictures are nearly unlimited.... More
