Hiking at Red Rock Canyon has a great selection of trails from easy to more advanced. There are trails that pass by a pond, quarry, many rock formations, treed areas and open areas. A great variety! A very peaceful place just off Hwy 24. Can see views into Garden of the Gods and of course Pike's Peak.

Great easy to intermediate hikes for everyone. As good as the Garden of the Gods but less crowded. Can even connect with Section 16!

Good hike-great views. The scenery here is quite lovely, and a lot like Garden of the Gods, but much less crowded. Take a picnic and your leashed pup and enjoy!
