Recommend that you stop first at the Visitors Center for a trail map. Then the paved walking trail starting from the North Main Parking Lot is well worth an easy stroll (about a mile and a half at its longest). Watching the climbers scaling the sheer rock cliffs was interesting.

This was my first visit to the Denver-Colorado Springs area, and everyone told me I must see Garden of the Gods! Having grown-up and mainly lived on the East Coast and in Florida, this scenic spot knocked my socks off! I walked along the well-paved gently rolling paths among spectacular rock formations, snapping photo after photo. The "icing on the cake" was watching the many technical climbers scale the almost vertical and high rock faces. You don't see that in Florida!

Beautiful rock formations jutting out of the ground are a sight to behold. Take the driving tour, it's free.

The red rocks are so cool, how they stay in place are a mystery and you can hike, bike, or ride thought the park !

Stunning scenery. You could almost imagine you're in Zion or Canyonlands or Arches, but Garden of the Gods is a free city park. We took a hour-long Segway tour. It was a great way to scout out the highlights and get a feel for the lay of the land, which lays very nicely thank you. I'll come back (and back and back..) just to walk the trails.
