You will be guided on a trail through Garden Of the Gods which is magical in itself. The leaders discussed the history of each rock formation as you trotted along in your group, led both in front and back by expert riders.

If you want to learn about the early inhabitants of the area this is the place to go. It's a living history museum of sorts. A great place to go as a family, especially if you home school are covering Colorado history.

I did not see any wheel chairs there. Much of it is outside on dirt walkways due to it being a historical site.

It is a city park that you can access any day (via the road on the south side or trails at Garden of the Gods.) The buildings are only open on particular days in which you must pay or be a member to be on grounds.
