  • We live nearby and love to visit the trading Post from time-to-time. We found it to be a great place for post cards, gifts, souvenirs, a snack, some good coffee, or a meal. Last time we went during a snow storm and found them open. We sat it some tables by a big window in the back and ate lunch while we watched the snow paint their beautiful property white.
  • Large and varied selection of souvenirs, clothing and food items. Hard to spend the time to check everything out when you are in such a magnificent nature park. Great stop to interest kids, huge stuffed bear on display. There is also a cafe here. Staff could have been more engaged.
  • This is a fun place to visit have you visit the garden of the gods. This is a great place to get local Colorado stuff like hats, shirts, bags, food, candy, toys, and all kind of stuff. They also have a small dinning area that is a good place to get burgers and sandwiches. Dont forget to go to the back area to see all the cool art and pottery. The place gets crowed during the spring and summer time. They have large clean bathrooms.
  • This place is so beautiful!! Love that you can drive through or walk through. The trails are well kept and provide great spots for great pictures. Go early to avoid crowds, gets super busy around sunset.
  • I love the store and all the different items they sell. The restaurant, however, could be run better, as they have often mostly closed up well before their posted closing time. They clean around you while eating in a very obvious way and 2 times I have been there employees have yelled across the seating area between the cafe and the restaurant to talk to each other. Maybe this is just how it is in the winter when they are not as busy. The food is pretty good though and in the summer there is a very nice outdoor area.
