Beautiful trails, plenty of sun, views of red rocks and garden of the Gods. Two fenced in areas for off leash dogs. Great for a winter hike or run.

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.

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

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