Great concert venue

The seating on stone platforms is oddly OK. We enjoyed the performance of Bonnie Raitt. She also had an excellent opening band to start out the show.

A large park with numerous hiking trails. Good for a picnic and good for families but not as pretty as I expected.

Great hike for all levels, because there are several branch off trails. Each trail has a rating on the map located by the trailhead. It is nice to have the variations to choose from! Plus, it is gorgeous!

This is a great way to see mother nature at her best. Meander through and enjoy the view. Great rock formations and geological wonders.

i found this place after work while i was there. its worth visiting and hiking around. i would say they should have no climbing signs on both ways to enter i didn't know you could not go on the rocks until i drove around to the other side. great views the leaves should be changing color now.

Such a beautiful hike up around the red rock canyon. There were places for the dog to run and that was very awesome for people who love there dog as a child. It would be nice to have an app or something telling you where you are within the Canyon because it is very easy to get lost.

Stayed close to here while visiting Colorado Springs and walked here a couple times, both in the afternoon and morning. The morning hikes were nice, not a lot of people and missed the afternoon sun. A cool way to spend a couple hours as there are several trails to choose from.

This is a great place to hike ... with something for every level of hiker. Lots of parking, porta potties, and a hidden pond.

We were amazed by the beauty and majesty of the red rocks in Colorado. This was something that we had only seen in photographs and we found that the reality completely outstripped our expectations.
