This was a great stop for us. We actually came to the trading post and after shopping a bit decided to drive thru the park. It was so spectacular that we parked, got out of the car, snapped lots of pics and enjoyed the beautiful views. This was free, and believe me, a family of 4 can use some "free" now and again. Also, the views, the rocks were so gorgeous. It was an unexpected pleasure and we will return again one day due to it's beauty.

This amounts to a very short detour and wonderful change of pace even if you're just driving through on I-25. Get off the interstate (from the north) at Garden of the Gods road, and just follow the signs. Plenty of places to pull off and ooh and aah at the sculptured red rock. Or if you have more time, get out and take one of the well marked trails.

Amazing: no fees at all to enter and soak up the fabulous scenery.

My husband and I had the chance of visiting this location in February/March and it was amazing! Mother Nature is AMAZING, beautiful, over-the-top.. I could go on and on! Watching some of the rock climbers was crazy. This whole place is amazing and so worth the drive- wherever you're traveling from!

We took the Jeep Tour through the gardens and around Manitou Springs. It cost $ 25 per person and takes just over and hour. The guide was terrific and so was the tour. You can self drive though the gardens and we did this ourselves to go back to things we wanted to see in more detail after the tour.
