The Garden of the Gods really came alive while viewing it from a Segway. Six friends recently viewed these red rocks up close as we traveled completly around the park with Mike, the instructor. Mike was very patient and took a lot of time with us.

August, 2010 was our second trip to the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This time we visited the park two separate mornings to take advantage of the spectacular dawn light.

The park's scenery alone warrants a visit, but the roads and trails make this park a dream for walking, running, hiking and picture taking. They now offer Segway(r) tours for folks that don't want to walk but want to be closer to nature. The best thing of all: park admission is free! (Segway tours do cost, however.)

Maintenance workers keep facilities neat and in good repair. They were out in force during early morning hours, before most visitors arrived. The only negative I can report is the visitor center staff seemed a little cranky. Otherwise, our visit was wonderful.

Runners and maintenance staff weren't the only creatures stirring during the mornings...deer also enjoy the cool, lush vegetation. The are apparently accustomed to humans as the fawn, doe, and buck we saw weren't easily scared as I took photos at close range.

If Colorado Springs boasted only this park as an attraction, a visit to the city would still be in order. With numerous other sights and activities in the area, the city is a great vacation destination. We look forward to returning again.

My favorite place to go while visiting family in the Springs. There's simply no place like Garden of the Gods. I love to hike, and the scenery here is just amazing! I wish I was able to live closer.

We spent about 4 hours hear while we were visiting Colorado Springs. There is no fee, there were some great photo ops and the kids enjoyed climbing around on the rocks. This is a great way to spend a few hours while in the area.

The rock formations are awesome. Worth seeing if in the area. We didn't walk around but drove around and it was worth the short drive.
