  • This is a great place to visit and a must stop place while visiting the Garden of the Gods. There is free parking so you can't beat the price. There are clean restrooms, great food choices, snacks, sweets, drinks and souvenirs. The fudge is to die for and they give hearty free samples and have a great bulk purchase deal. Their web site can probably answer most other questions. Enjoy.
  • We've come several times to the Trading Post over the years, and always enjoy looking at all the items for sale. The kids always find a souvenir they love. The fudge tastes amazing - free samples! The little restaurant seems to be staffed well, and I appreciate an ice cold beer after a long hike w the family. The patio is peaceful and filled w lovely sound of water - from both the sluice for panning, and the fountain. Everyone is helpful and friendly, so a big thanks from this momma of a large family!
  • My kids loved sluicing for their own stones and gems in the back- we got so many stones for the money spent, compared to buying individually at shops or other tourist stops. Also I was so excited that there was local honey available to purchase! Great place to stop after exploring the sights.
  • Literally the best gift shop! I love this place and make sure it is on my list of places to go when in Colorado! They have the usual souvenirs, of course but then they also have a lot of unusual items that you don't see most places. Plus, you get to drive through the Garden of the Gods which is beautiful!
  • Enjoyed our visit to the Garden of the Gods. Easy to get around- plenty of places to stop and walk around. The views were stunning! The park was very clean and everyone we came in contact with was friendly. This is definitely a destination we will tell people about.
