My family was stunned by the beauty of these red rock formations and desert landscape. The kids were thrilled that we spotted some "mountain sheep" on our drive in! There are several trails and paved paths of varying difficulty. We tried a trail that looped...More

Garden of the Gods is located very close to the Manitou Springs area. Wonderful scenery for sightseeing & photo-taking! There is no admission cost. You slowly drive through, and there are pull-off areas to stop and take photos and selfies. There is a very nice,...More

What a city park!!! The 1909 trolley was quaint, yet safe. Our guide, Sidewinder, was informative and funny. We were able to see all the major rock formations in the park in 45 minutes.

However be aware that there has been a rash of incidents in the park by a small group of thugs breaking into cars and intentionally messing with cars. Just be aware. Local Police is currently trying to deal with these punks.

This a must see for all visitors to the area. Many breathtaking views and trails to hike. Make sure to stop and get a map so not to miss anything. Great picture opportunity at Siamese Twins.

Was quite packed up even in December. The backdrop of the mountains was breathtaking. A lot of walking needed.
