Enjoyed our visit to the area. Not nearly as busy as Garden of Gods. Lots of wide trails and places to explore right up next to the rocks. The pond was only a short walk from the main parking area. Was fun watching the bright...More

Have been to Red Rock Canyon twice now and have enjoyed myself both times. There is a map in the parking lot that shows various trails and its difficulty. Great views of Garden of the Gods in the distance, a pond where there's often ducks/geese....More

Walked here with my baby daughter and loved it. Beautiful space with manageable walks and lots of route options. Lovely view of Garden of the Gods too.

Good for all ages! Dog friendly, they also have a off leash hiking trail for dogs. Great views you can see Pikes Peak, the incline and Garden of the Gods.plus enjoy mother nature and so animals. We saw deers, squirrels and birds on the trails.

Just moved to the Springs but this is already an early favorite. There are so many paths and trails that you could hike here all the time and never take the same path. Some areas for dogs as well, so the entire family can come.

If you only have a few minutes and live in the southern part of Colorado Springs, this is a decent walk. Dogs love it, but there are so many better hikes in the area. Trails.com can lead you to a multitude of trails, but again,...More

Definitely a tourist thing to do. There's a nice little gift shop and places to park to see some of the sights. Definitely worth a few hours if you're in the area, but probably not a destination.

Generally, this time of year, the weather is warm (high in the 80's) with rain showers a couple of times per week. Check out the weather before going, and carry an umbrella if rain showers are in the forecast. The humidity... More
