Garden Of The Gods, Colorado Springs Reviews

  • What an amazing place to visit. You can just drove through it to appreciate the beauty. You can also walk on the many paved paths of try your footing at the abundant trails that cover the area. Amazing photo opportunities. Take time to go to the visitor center and learn about the areas natural history and even watch a great presentation about how the garden was formed.

  • Garden of the Gods is cool because the options are very diverse. If you have young children or don't want to walk very far, there's a simple paved path, and then you can just drive through the rest of the park and stop in any of the parking lots around the road if you want to see something else. Or, if you're an avid hiker and want to explore the park in-depth, there are a lot of different trails and you can choose what difficulty will be best for you. And because the paths all connect, you can choose at each crossroads whether you want to go further or loop back to wherever you parked. I would highly recommend getting a map at the visitor center in order to understand all your options in terms of trails and keep it with you as you go.

  • The views are breathtaking! I like this park and wish I had more time to spend when we were here. The nice thing is if you don't have a lot of time it is easy to drive through the park and get to take in the spectacular views. We did pull over to take a few pictures. Next time we are in this area I would absolutely love to walk around more. But I'm just glad we got a chance to see The Garden of the Gods.

  • Neat place to visit. Several huge rock formations and several walking areas and trails for you to get close up views of these beauties. There are also areas for people to climb the formations, but you do need to get a permit ahead of time. The roads are pretty great and the information center was cool too. The people at the desk were really friendly. Great place to walk around, and lots of awesomeness for families to appreciate

  • Words cannot describe how impressed I was with this place. I found it more interesting than some parts of national parks. So many interesting geological formations within a relatively small and walkable space. The welcome center also had good exhibits. This is definitely a must-see in Colorado Springs.
