“Great hike with kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I have heard this area called "Garden of the Gods for locals." This park has three levels of hikes, and the beginner and intermediate trails were easy for my 8 and 10 year olds. they also enjoyed that the trails went up and down cliffs and they got to see neat rock formations and fossils. the park also has dedicated dog and bike trails. Be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen though, because there are very few trees and the sun can beat down.

“An Ampitheatre Like No Other”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Has to be seen to be appreciated. Carved out of a mountain. The name is appropriate because the rock colors are definitely red. Hard to believe the size and scope of this facility. Worth a visit, especially if your favorite musical group is performing.

Great place to hike. The rocks are increditable and the views are unreal. I would encourage people to go and it for themselves.
