What a dump!! Actually it was part of a dump...but a beautiful place.

Great place for hiking, jogging, climbing, horseback riding, and cycling in the Springs. It has spectacular views in the park canyons and "hogbacks".

I love Red Rock Canyon open space, it is one of my all-time favorite places to go for a jaunt with my puppies and wife. My wife worked on the trails prior to it opening back some years ago! The one complaint that I have is that the park has some obvious history behind it what with it being a... More

There are miles and miles of beautiful trails in this canyon. Beautiful rocks and you often see rock climbers on the trails.

There is easy trail cours and takes less than 2 hours. When we were there, there were less people (I didn't know why google showed that it was closed but it was open in real). Therefore, we enjoyed the nature with peace.

If you want to hike in Colorado Springs there a dozen better places than Red Rock Canyon. It is very dirty, seems like nobody cares picking up after their dog's... Not recommended!
