Red Rock Canyon Open Space is a 789-acre city park in Colorado Springs. It is situated on the west side of the city, adjacent to Manitou Springs and south of U.S. Route 24. The park consists of a series of parallel ridges (called "hogbacks") and eroded canyons, a continuation of the same sandstone rocks of the Fountain Formation that make up Garden of the Gods a few miles to the north.

Awesome if you're looking for something easy

I loved this trail. My first time in Colorado and I will forever remember this trip. The weather was perfect and the scenery amazing as was the company.

love this place. has dog parks

Great red rocks, very peaceful place and simple trails

This is a nice area for easy hiking suitable for kids. There is plenty of parking. It can get quite crowded on the weekends

We had a wonderful October morning hiking two easy and intermediate trails. I would have given 5 stars for composting toilets as the porta johnies are disgusting. There is a nearby Starbucks.

Loved this trail.

I love it here! I bring my dog here a lot, and we both love it.
