Really neat place to visit. Lots of rocks and bluffs. Able to get up close and personnel with nature. You feel like you are on top of the world!

A six hour drive south and you are in another world. Great hiking and camping here at Garden of the Gods. Bring plenty of water as there was not much fresh water available.

This place is semi-interesting, but there are no barriers anywhere to keep people from falling. Each year, a couple of people fall to their deaths in this park. When we were there, all kinds of people, some disabled, wandering around. Even saw people with infants.

On a last minute whim the family and I decided to spend the day in So Ill. We had stopped at the rest area just inside the state line and read about this beautiful park around there. So we went and we are so glad we did!!!

Beautiful scenery everywhere! We saw the Garden of the Gods, Stoneface, and a few others around there. Stop by the Ranger's station and get the pamphlets and you too can see all the pretty sites around there!!

What an absolutely beautiful park. Easy to medium walking paths take you through some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever experienced. It is well worth a trip if your anywhere within a 100 plus miles of it. We have been several different times and have not been disappointed. DO NOT forget your camera.
