Beautiful hike!

The trails are very well marked, great for a family outing. Perfect for enjoying the outdoors and not overly strenuous.

Quite a few locals and a some outsiders such as myself enjoyed hiking. I went there 2 of 3 days in the mornings before going on other adventures There were "easy paths" to "advanced paths" to "only idiots" paths. Scenery was amazing!

Red Rock Canyon is my absolute favorite place to hike in Colo Spgs. The dogs and I are in absolute heaven when we go there. I like the fact that it's not a far drive from the city, the trails vary in difficulty and length so I can take not so athletic family members and they can still enjoy, and... More

A beautiful park with easy hiking trails, wildlife, and rock formations to rival garden of the gods. A great place for wildflowers and birdwatching also

A great place to explore with interesting rocks. Not as 'monumental' as Garden of the Gods but it's also not as touristy. I stress previous reviewers who note this is NOT the amphitheater west of Denver. But a great thing it's a free place to enjoy the outdoors.

We toured GOTG, the. The 2nd day we went here. Wow! Some city, just minutes away from each other but such different hiking & views! Just as the other park. Get there early to make sure you get parking. This park has a little less shade than GOTG so I would suggest getting their early. (Or maybe an evening hike).... More

Don't confuse this with Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver. This is a great open space with awesome hiking and exploring located near Colorado Springs. If Garden of the Gods is crowded (and when is it not so?) check out this area instead. Be ready for a little walking and you should love it.

Great place to hike. My kids, ages 12-18 really enjoyed Red Rock Canyon. Beautiful scenery, exercise, family fun, and it's FREE.
