This is such a wonderful place that we almost drove right past on our way back from Pike's Peak. It is so beautiful, I'm so glad that we stopped here. There are many trails for different hiking abilities, from easy to hard. The easy trails are flat and take you right through the bottom of the canyon. We did the... More

Red Rock open space has great trails and views. Because it is so convenient it can be very busy but still a great spot.

We did not go to a concert while visiting, but we did take family to Red rocks to tour the facility and the museum, This would be a great place to bring the kids to if they have too much energy. It is large, safe, and plenty of place to run around. It appears that many other locals visit to... More

A nice hike with interesting scenery. There are several short hikes available which you can connect together to make a longer one. The terrain undulates but is not strenuous for avid hikers. We were told by the visitor center to hike here instead of Garden of the Gods because it would not be as busy. There were very few people... More

Less busy than garden of the gods and you can actually get up to the rocks and walk on some. Nice spot for a long walk without a lot of people and not too far away from town.

Had only a few hours to spend here, but so glad we went. Enjoyed Red Rock Canyon over Garden of the Gods, not as many tourist. Hiking trails ranged from easy to somewhat challenging. Really enjoyed the scenery in this park... reflections of rock formations along water, Garden of Gods in background, ducks, deer and so much more!! Definitely going... More
