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.
