"This excellent loop hike, following four different trails, offers spectacular views of the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak from rocky ridges and wooded valleys. Your dog will have lots of smells to sniff at the various trail forks, as horses and mountain bikers are known to travel the various trails. This wonderful hike follows parts of four different trails around the main red-rock zone of the Garden of the Gods. The first section, following Palmer Trail, climbs onto ridges west of North and South Gateway Rocks."
"This excellent loop hike, following four different trails, offers spectacular views of the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak from rocky ridges and wooded valleys. The trails are singletrack except for a wide concrete sidewalk section. Expect great views and a close-up intimate experience with the unique rock formations and the transitional ecosystems found here. Most of the trail is quiet, with few other hikers, although the section through the main Garden zone is busy. The trail also crosses the park roads four times. Be sure to use the crosswalks."
