Gorgeous landscape. Many easy to moderate trails, some paved for handicapped and strollers. Very family friendly place. Visitor Center mobbed on a Saturday. May want to avoid it.

The scenery is beautiful. Forrest mixed with large and small rock formations and occasional animals scurrying by. Plenty of pull over spaces with picnic benches and trash containers. A fantastic Trading Post where everyone can relax and enjoy refreshments that not only taste good but...More

We arrived on a record setting heat day, but were able to fit 1 hike in to the siamese twins. Beautiful to drive around, definitely recommend a stop!

We took one of the loop trails that circled the main rocks. The kids had fun climbing on a few of them. It was a beautiful park!

Let's see, it's gorgeous, it's free, and it's big. There are two places that everyone who visits Colorado Springs must see: Pike Peak, and Garden of the Gods. Filled with towering, knifelike red (and some white) sandstone rocks it is a beautiful place to hike....More

Great history for you to enrich your visit to the beautiful Garden of the Gods, from the Ute Indians that used to come here for rituals to General and Queen Palmer. A place to hike, ooh and ahh over the stone formations and the geology...More

We went in February and there was a snow storm so they closed the park. We will return in the summer and I can't wait to see it without snow. I want to hike around.

DRIVE is the only way to go. You can go at your own pace and stop where you want. There are places to park for a short walk or just pull over. The best walk area with a baby (and stroller) would be off the north main... More

Sorry, that was for the Pikes Peak tour. We drove around the Garden of the Gods. Plenty of places to stop, park and take pictures.
