There is a trailmap in the parking lot, but none of the trails seemed to be marked with signage and it was very difficult to tell what was a "path". We tried following three or four different trails which surround a couple of rock formations....More

I entered at Red Rock Open Space which is very easy to get to right off the 24 freeway. A good amount of parking. I'm sure on weekends this place fills up. Nice place to explore. Great scenery. Once you get away from the noise...More

Neat!!! I knew it was there, but I didn't know, it is the beautiful complimenting hiking park of the Garden of the Gods:) It is right across Highway 24, heading North down Ridge Road coming out of the Garden. Be aware they are doing construction,...More

A good choice of trails based on activity level. The views are great and even views of Garden of the Gods. This used to be a rock quarry over a hundred years ago, and you can see where they cut the slabs. Colorado Springs never...More

Red Rock Canyon is not a state park. It's a nice place but if you want to see some great red rock formations, go to Garden of the Gods. It's outstanding. It's also not a state park. It's very close to Red Rock Canyon.
