What a cool place to do a little rock climbing. Took my kids to see some sites and didn't realize they would have so much fun climbing around on these huge red boulders. Absolutely Beautiful!

The geology here is beyond fantastic. But this is the most popular attraction in Colorado Springs, so try to come off season or very early to beat the crowds. Don't even think of coming midday on a summer weekend.

Beautiful park which is part of the city of Colorado Springs. Clearly the best city park I’ve seen. Plenty of hikes, climbing and photo opportunities. Very nice!

We took a day trip from Denver and drove to Colorado Springs. These are some very beautiful natural formations. Just a pleasant walk and such a nice area. Colorado Springs is a nice town with some good restaurants and sites to see. Well worth a day trip from Denver or a nice place to stay for a couple of days.

We drove from the Denver area roughly one hour to get to the Garden of the Gods and it was such a great experience! The rock formations are incredible and make you realize just how amazing nature is. I highly recommend that you stop at the Visitor & Nature Center before entering the park. The center offers a wonderful and informative introduction to the wildlife and plant life you may see in the area. It also gives you some history and facts in the many exhibits. The gift shop was also nice, expensive, but nice. At least some of the proceeds go to preserving the park which is FREE to the public. Most importantly, GET A MAP from the information desk. We had to help at least 5 families find their way back to the parking lot because we had one. Drive your car to the North Lot and hike from there. You get to see may of the rock formations on the map which you can tick off (they’re numbered). After you enter between the north and South Gate rocks and past the sentinel, you may get to see some rock climbers in action. Bring water and don’t underestimate the sun, but as long as you stay on the trails, follow the maps, and don’t overdo it in the sun, you will enjoy an amazing experience! Bring plenty of water if you go in the summer like we did. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
