My son and I were pressed for time, so we didn't get to hike the paths (plus it was too cold for me!), but the drive through the park was just breathtaking. Whether you have half an hour or 3 hours to spend, Garden of the Gods should not be missed.

We love this place. There are so many trails to hike. The place is huge and filled with wonderful sites. Standing rock is awesome. The kids can climb up and venture around. They loved it. There are tons of places for a picnic. If you like outdoor discovery, this is your place.

I have visited the Garden in winter and summer. My favorite time to visit is in winter when there is snow. It is so beautiful. Definitely stop at the Visitor & Nature Center to see the exhibits and video before going into the Garden. There are many trails throughout the Garden. The Perkins Central trail is probably the most popular... More

Such an incredible place to visit and explore. The best part about it is the price, FREE! Parking, entrance, everything is free! My kids could have explored the rock bluffs for days. Plan on bringing water and hiking if that's your thing. Great time with the family!

The Garden of the Gods is a breathtaking photo op in the heart of Colorado Springs. It is worth the stop and you'll find some incredible views here. You don't need long, 45 minutes is plenty of time to park and hike a little while through the rock formations. Whatever you do, don't skip this stop!

Since I lived in the Springs from '81 to '95 I spent many a day in the 'Garden of the Gods' area...I used to climb the rocks with a good friend and his dog 'Chico', a German Shepard who thought this was his playground no doubt...when you do climb and reach the higher levels it is so quiet you can't...

We visited in February and it was crowded. It is beautiful and great for kids and pets. The big problem is parking. We drove all through the park and the only available parking was at the visitor's center. On the plus side, you can see most of it from the car. This makes it nice for those with limited mobility.

I visited the park regularly when I lived there. Always beautiful any season! Sunrise is beautiful sitting on top of the tilted rock. You can take a drive up the mountain range too. A must see for all ages to marvel at the rock formations.

This is a free entrance park and it can be traveled by car, if short of time. Visited the Balanced Rock and the Kissing Camels landmarks. Unique red rock sightseeing that captured our attention! Quiet and very pleasant trip!
