Red Rock Canyon Path Professional Reviews and Guides

"A classic hike flanked by towering sandstone walls follows an old road in the heart of Red Rock Canyon Open Space.

The Red Rock Canyon Trail explores Red Rock Canyon, the centerpiece of 1,474-acre Red Rock Canyon Open Space. The city of Colorado Springs purchased the park’s initial 787 acres in 2003, saving the area from trophy homes, a golf course, and resort development. Red Rock Canyon itself is a mile-long canyon lined with ruddy sandstone cliffs and floored by scrub oak, cottonwood trees, and grassy meadows."
