If you like to Hike there are extensive trails that go around Garden of the Gods and up into the foothills of the mountains. There are also several options for climbing, just stop by the visitor center... More

I love Garden of the Gods (GOTG). The geological spectacle is amazing in the midst of a Rocky Mountain backdrop. The trails are so well designed to take you through the park and a way for you to capture all of the highlights. If allowed, however, an adventurous excursion off trail is worth its weight in gold. You will feel... More

Be ready to take a few pictures and get in your daily exercise with this easy stroll through earth's rock Giants! Bring sunscreen and water. They have paths and good parking. I'd plan on 2-3 hours tops. If I remember right there is visitors center and programs for the children and adults at certain times of the year. Check out... More

Do more than 'take a drive' through this very special piece of Mother Nature's handiwork ... get out and walk! Handicap ramps and paved trails among the rock formations and trees make it accessible for every level. Stand in the shadow of the giant red 'Kissing Camels" at the foot of snow-capped Pikes Peak . Pack a picnic lunch or... More

The rock formations in Garden of the Gods are so spectacular that it's hard to express. I enjoyed walking among them, and trying to capture the right images to remember the view. The hiking is not strenuous, and the paths are well established. Take water with you, because it can get very dry and hot in the summer. There is... More

Garden of the Gods is a must see in Colorado Springs. The towering red rock formations are stunning and the area has natural flora and fauna of the region. The visitor's center has great history of the area as well. The park can get crowded, so pack a lunch in the warm weather and enjoy a family hike while you... More

You just can't go wrong with a trip to Garden of the Gods while visiting Colorado Springs. It will not disappoint in any season. You can choose from many activities... a simple drive through the park with stops along the way for photo opportunities is the easiest way to view the Gardens. They also have hiking trails, horseback riding, and... More
