Owner description: Located at the base of Pikes Peak, this National Natural Landmark and popular park features stunning geological formations, rock climbing, nature trails and the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center.
Reviewed May 17, 2015

A place to restore oneself, body-mind-spirit. Except for essential roads and a trading post shop (considerately located far from the main rock formations and pathways), there's no commercialism to distract from an individual's connection to our spectacular earth.

We visited in May but it was quite chilly. There was snow on the mountains in the background and that added to the bright red colors of the natural rock formations. the park was amazing and the visitor center was very nice. We hiked the trails for several hours and were constantly finding something new to see.
