“You must visit here if nowhere else in Colorado Springs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Cannot beat the cost (free) nor the views (spectacular) and it is accessible for anyone. We visit every time, and always will. A MUST!

“Nice drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Conveniently located just outside Denver. Worth the drive to see. Very cool pictures and looked like something in Utah. There is a reason this is the #1 site in town. Balanced rock is good for taking pictures at.

“Beautiful and Accessible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Garden of the Gods is a beautiful place. It's also wonderful because it offers a lot of different levels of accessibility. There are paved trails so even people in wheelchairs or parents with strollers can enjoy it. It's got so much. There are short and long hikes. Lots of parking. A great visitor center and trading post. You can climb here.

Because Garden of the Gods is so nice, it's often very crowded, especially on main, paved paths in the center of the park.

This is a great place to visit - whether for a 1/2 hour, or half the day.

The park is free to enter, is very clean, has tons of great trails, and photo-opportunities! It really is a beautiful park to visit and marvel at the rock formations!
