I visited the park regularly when I lived there. Always beautiful any season! Sunrise is beautiful sitting on top of the tilted rock. You can take a drive up the mountain range too. A must see for all ages to marvel at the rock formations.

This is a free entrance park and it can be traveled by car, if short of time. Visited the Balanced Rock and the Kissing Camels landmarks. Unique red rock sightseeing that captured our attention! Quiet and very pleasant trip!

We've been to the Garden of the Gods many times over the years. Firstly, it's not a garden. The walking trails are pretty easy but my mother is older than God and in very good shape and she had to go a little slow. Just so you know. This is what we do when we need to go to CO... More

If you're in the area, you must stop at this park. The vistas are striking and the native show is very impactful.

A Great Experience at a Great Price! Free! Garden of the Gods is a City Park, so admission is completely free. But if they did charge, I would gladly pay $10-$20 for the experience. The Garden of the Gods is a truly breath taking experience. The unique weathering of the rock outcrops and the great views of Pike’s Peak as... More

I can make this really short and sweet. There are so many fun trails to check out but stop at the visitor's center first for a map, and a snack if you're hungry. You won't go wrong with any of the trails. The rocks are amazing to see. They have sidewalks and dirt paths, so you have a choice. Even... More

A great place to enjoy the scenery and a fun place for hiking, biking, picnics, rock climbing, or just drive around the area and enjoy the view of the red rocks and the kissing camels.
