We went mountain biking here and I think it's the prettiest place in Colorado Springs. There are many trails to choose from and maps on site will show their difficulty levels. The rocks are gorgeous, the trails are in well kept and parking isn't a problem before lunchtime on a weekday. Bring your camera!

Go early on the morning to avoid crowds and school trips. We went at 10am and had the trail we chose pretty much to ourselves. Out-of-Towners should walk, not bike, and take it easy. The elevation changes on the trails and lungs not yet acclimated to the altitude will huff and puff.

Don't miss this - it's right across the road from Garden of the Gods. Free, and very picturesque. If you like to hike, you will not be disappointed.

A group of us are in the area from all over the states. We wanted to do some hiking so we headed for the multiple trails in Red Rock Canyon. It was beautiful. quiet. breath taking. The hiking was simple to medium difficult. Some areas are open to dogs. We really enjoyed the climbs. It was a bit hard to hike with the higher altitude but taking it slower helped.

This is a really easy location to get to, nice when you just want to just get to someplace interesting to go for a run/hike. (I'm a local.) Beautiful views, nice long, wide trails. Saw a gorgeous coyote as we were pulling up, an added bonus but can't guarantee you'll see one!

Very worth the time spent here.

Visiting natural sites across the US astound me (us). This another fantastic place to see and learn about the history.
