Admire one of the country’s most impressive archaeological wonders at Garden of the Gods. The 552 hectare (1,364 acre) public park is famous for the dozens of freestanding red rock formations created by a geological upheaval millions of years ago. Hike through the lush green forests while admiring the towering 91 m (300 ft) formations set against the dramatic backdrop of snowcapped Pike’s Peak. Head to the park’s visitor and nature center to learn the history of the formations or to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy panoramic views of the park from the cafe terrace.

  • On Roadtrip, took quick opportunity to drive through park and snap photos-absolutely worth it! Traveling with a sleeping three year old so we didn't get to wander but sure it would be worth it! 
  • Views are great. Parking is available. Lots of dogs and hikers. Pack water if you plan on being out for awhile. Bathrooms can be a little neglected on high traffic days. 
  • Get up early and enjoy the sunrise or at dusk. Be sure to take your camera. The rock formations are hard to believe. Walkways are all concrete would be good for wheelchairs if needed.
