  • A great hiking experience. Breathtaking views of gigantic rock formations, . Port a potty available. Fresh air . Don’t forget to stop for a selfie with the Sasquatch statue nearby.  more »
  • I will always go back to Garden of the Gods. Just took my husband there on our mini honeymoon and he was blown away. Not something you’d expect to find in Illinois. Words cannot express how beautiful....  more »
  • Gorgeous views and accessible hiking year round. Visited over a long weekend and enjoyed the mild weather. Don’t miss nearby Rim Rock.  more »

  • Its absolutely beautiful and fascinating. The thought that there used to be an ocean there 360 million years ago is mind blowing. I live in Hardin county Illinois were this is at and I've seen it many a times the best thing is it never gets old.
  • This place is magical! Nothing beats the views. We visited last month with our 4.5 year old daughter and felt even she could see pretty much everything. Easy to find with lots of signage. Trails are easy and takes you through a nice loop of stuff to see. A little more adventurous climbing around will show off just how amazing this area is!
  • This place is awesome. A hidden gem in Illinois. Unbelievable rock formations will amaze you. Being able to climb them will thrill you. Be careful, don't be stupid, and bring bug spray just in case. You should also bring water, there are only outhouse type bathrooms available. Pro tip: park on the upper lot (not the first one) to save a few steps
  • The stone trail was very well made and extremely easy to follow. If you follow the stone trail you will see everything. If you want a slightly closer view you can get that by venturing off the trail a little. The best part about the stone path is that it ends and begins at the parking lot.
  • I had the most exciting day of my life here. It's so peaceful and relaxing. First time ever being there and I can guarantee it will not be my last. The rocks are beautiful it's amazing to see what mother nature can create. Every picture we have is breathtaking like a photo you'd see in a magazine. He chose a awsome place for a date/hike!
