    My favorite place! So pretty and easy hike. Can see snow caps of Loveland from here which makes for a great view. Lots of people but not terribly crowded. Highly recommend this location for any season.

    Trail 360 on YouTube-Garden of the Gods is a very popular attraction in the Springs. It is well known for its breath taking rock formations and easy access for rock climbing. The contrast of red rock, green vegetation, and blue skies will have you telling others about the Garden of the Gods.

    Great for pics and some fun climbing in certain areas. An easy "hike" along a paved loop.

    This is a good family trail. Did this with my wife, 21year old nephew, and my 9 year old. We also did the Siamese Twins trail that has a little incline to it but is worth it to make it to the Window. Good picture taking opportunity, and kids love to climb on the rocks.

    Easy walk, relatively flat, well-marked, though you can wander off into residential neighborhoods. Best to not go in the summer when the park is infested with tourists.

    We visited the park in the late afternoon, with the sun shining on the western walls on the rock formations. An early morning visit would surely give a completely different experience. It was a Saturday, so the trails and roads were busy. This didn't matter, because the rocks themselves are so overpowering and it is easy to forget that there are others around. One can easily take pictures that make it seem like one is in the wild back country, rather than in a popular city park in Colorado Springs. As our time was limited, we were glad of the short hike (0.9 miles) and very slight elevation gain. The trail described is paved, and wide enough for large groups to comfortably walk close together. We will return someday for a longer walk in this beautiful park.

    This is one of the premiere trails our family has hiked in our experience. For those that live in Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods is a part of their natural environment. For those of us who don't live in this area, this is one of the most beautiful hikes you will ever experience. The terrain is challenging on some areas and easy in others. Elevation changes are not too strenuous. It is hot during the summer months. Stay hydrated. Wear a hat. The photo opportunities on this hike are endless. Do not leave your camera at home. We have rated this hike four stars instead of five because of the excessive traffic on this trail. There are significant numbers of visitors to this park, so be patient. Overall, everyone needs to hike this trail at least once in their lifetime.
