I love Red Rock Canon Open Space! My husband, our two dogs and myself frequent it often. Would highly recommend. Just please remember that nature is not your garbage can so please pack out what you pack in.

Great easy to intermediate hikes for everyone. As good as the Garden of the Gods but less crowded. Can even connect with Section 16!

Good hike-great views. The scenery here is quite lovely, and a lot like Garden of the Gods, but much less crowded. Take a picnic and your leashed pup and enjoy!
