Red Rock Canyon Open Space, Colorado Springs Reviews

  • We’ve only explored a very small area of the space so far, but thoroughly enjoyed it. The views, oh the views. Pikes Peak. Garden of the Gods. Not to mention the surrounding landscape. The trails are nice. The parking lot is a decent size, but probably fills on beautiful days. Looks like the off leash dog area is newly fenced, so your pups can run free. It’s a good size area with its own trails. Only saw a couple of other pups when we were there, but definitely enough space to hike with your pack. We can’t wait to go back & explore more!

  • It's beautiful and a great place to let the dog run. Just have to be vigilant about your surroundings and the other dogs and where the stay out signs are. I only gave it 3 stars due to the lack of any kind of benches or stumps or anything to sit on. It was quite warm that day and it's a bit of an uphill hike to get to the fenced in dog run area. I am a little older so I could have used a stump to take a breather. All in's a beautiful place and great for families.

  • I love coming here with my dog to hike. Most people are very friendly and responsibly using the space. If you are also a dog owner who comes, please pick up after pet and follow leash usage guidelines. If you want your dog off leash there is a very nice fenced in area designated for off leash use. You and your dogs are not any more special than the rest of us. Probably my number 1 reason for giving this open space 4 stars as opposed to 5.

  • Amazing hiking and easy to follow trails. I love the views from "Contemplative Trail" I would recommend going on a sunny day with tempatures from 60- 70 degrees. If it is a windy day you might need a jacket, but other than that you can dress casual. This a great hiking spot for beginners and to take friends or family who are not native to Colorado. I Hope you enjoy the trails as much as I did.

  • I love this park. It says 'hiking area' but I think of it for mountain biking. Great trails, reasonably marked, and fun skills area. I'd give 5 stars if they had not destroyed the awesome challenging sections of the Inteman Trail. I don't mind easier trails for bypass, but I think it's wrong to bulldoze great trails just because some people are wimps and can't handle them. Instead of sustainability work on parts, they ripped up the forest (far worse damage) to remove one of the best trails in the state.
