Nice hiking trails with easy access, benches to rest at and an up-close view of the landscape. We really enjoyed the easy walk to view the landscape. We even got to see some of the wildlife: deer and birds. Well worth seeing.

We actually just stopped in here early one morning as we were too early for where we were going for the day. We parked and walked about 45 minutes. We practically had the place to ourselves. Nice views and trails.

My Hiking buddy and I trekked multiple loops thru out the Canyon and were not disappointed. It is a well maintained public park that charges no fees , stunning vistas and an easy drive from most resorsts and hotels.

Red Rock Canyon is a long, straight canyon that, amazingly enough, is surrounded by sheer walls of red rock. It is especially interesting that this canyon was originally a quarry. There is a section on the right side about half a mile in, that clearly...More

This is a beautiful place to hike. Its close proximity to Colorado Springs makes it an easy day trip. The rock formations are amazing and the area holds a lot of history. A morning hike is best because it can get pretty hot in the...More

There are masses of walking and cycling tracks to chose from. You decide how long or far you want to go. Plenty to see from the red rocks, the quarry and the ponds. Head up into the hills to get stunning views down over Colorado...More
