I love Red Rock Canyon because it gives you the same beauty of Garden of the Gods with a fraction of the traffic. This canyon has a much more local crowd and more natural beauty without the roads or pathways. You'll be glad you came.

We hike and bike in this park every month of every year. It’s close to home, however access is difficult unless one drives there. Crossing hwy 24 is death defying on bicycles and entering from 31st street really isn’t much fun nor very scenic. There...More

They called this an "open space" and you could spend an entire day exploring it! There are several levels of trails, we started on the easier one and somehow ended up on the difficult trail. As always, I was glad I took my trekking poles,...More

This park is not to be missed. The rocks are spectacular, the views are breath taking. The entire park is paved and signs up to help navigate. You are able to see the skyline of Denver as well as hundreds of miles of mountain ranges...More

We were visiting with our dog and I'm so glad we went as they have a great off-leash fenced area. We also explored the other trails and came across many hikers, bikers and families all enjoying the area.

Visited RR early morning. They were sponsoring a hospital stair climb...we paid $25 donation just to get in. Spectacular natural setting. History of RR was interesting. The list of performers was from every musical type and era. Would LOVE to see a concert there.

These trails are in an open space across from my home. I really enjoy my almost daily hikes here. Sometimes busier than others. Late afternoon when school is out and many get off work. Tuesday and Thursdays after school there are some kids' bike clubs...More

Great place to hike, with fantastic geology. Only went a mile and started back but plenty of nature hiking to do. Dog friendly.

I am not sure what Weatherike is. The weather changes frequently here in Colorado Springs. Easy to track on a smart phone.
