Garden of The Gods
This remarkable 1,360-acre park is so full of weird and surreal red sandstone rock formations that it looks like Mother Nature teamed with Salvador Dali in forming it. Numerous well-maintained nature trails, some of which are paved, fan through the park and offer great photo opportunities. Educational markers are numerous and enhance your understanding of the who, what, where and why of these one-of-a-kind formations. Garden of the Gods Visitor Center, located across the street from the north entrance, offers hands-on exhibits, tours, a cafe and more. Admission is free.
This was an amazing site to see. All I can say is WOW! It is a must see for all who visit Colorado Springs. I would definitely recommend everyone who visits to go see the Garden of the Gods! WOW Amazing!
If you ever plan on going to CO, you must take a trip to the garden. Its free and the views are amazing. Be sure to bring the camera. My family also did the horseback riding through the gardens and loved every minute.
I lived in Colorado for 3 years and visited the park many times, even went thru the park to get home because it was relaxing. But I find it incredible that in visiter comments they tell about how much fun it was to climb all those formations. Please stop! That is not what those formations are for . Nature does enough eroding on her own. Keep the Garden of the Gods intact.
Although I stayed on the paved trail because a storm was coming in, it was absolutely awesome, I am planning on going back soon and doing some hiking along the other trails, I am hoping to see more, but just the little bit I did see was gorgeous and took well over 50 pictures!
I highly recommend this to anyone, it is easy access for strollers and wheelchairs so there is no excuse not to visit! It is always FREE to walk the trails, however there are some tours for around $5 a person I believe, and pets are allowed on the trails. (Just pick up after them.)
Huge Rocks, and room to climb all over. Our 2 kids (2 & 7) where in heaven climbing around all the formations.
The visitors center was neat as well and there were lots of trails you could take, even one that was paved so we could use the stroller.
A must see in the Springs Area!
GOG really amazed me. We didn't stay long since we had a supper date, but we got to see the kissing camels, and i think the bison (formations of rock) as well as several rock climbers! I had never seen people scale a mountain like they did! We got there just as the sun was setting on the back side of the red rock and I must say it was breathtaking. Very relaxing walk along the paved trails. Much of the nature trails were blocked off for reclamation and preservation of habitats, but from what we saw, we didn't need the nature trails! Next month when we come back, we will picnic out there and even see the movie on GOG at the visitor center!
