We went to this place just as a couple of tourists and had a great time just walking in and around the big red boulders/ rocks. The amphitheatre is something to look at, really unique and attractive.

Easy to medium hike stroll. Beautiful scenery. Easy to get to. Just down the road from Old Colorado City. Hi there a couple times with our son.

This is my go-to place when I want to get out in nature but don't want to be gone all day. Beautiful views and there are lots of trails to explore. On nice days, parking can be a little tough as it has become more and more popular.

Less traveled than Garden of the Gods. Good trails to walk. A bit of rock climbing we hadn't expected. Trails damaged by weather. Friendly hikers everywhere and lots of dog walkers.

Other than being little chilly was great. Got to walk the area and let my grandchildren enjoy the day. Absolutely breath taking.

great outdoor views, the place is peaceful and it is a must see. It is all close to one another (Garden of Gods, Pikes Peak).
