“Amazing place to visit”

It doesn't matter what time of year it is this is a great place to visit. There are different trails to hike and the views are amazing especially at sunset or in the fall.

The Garden of The Gods is simply beautiful. The natural rock formations and wilderness foot trails are a must for any outdoor person or nature lover.

The rock formations are absolutely amazing. A wonderful outing for the entire family. We try to go there at least once a year. Photography buffs will love the view.

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!
