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.

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.

I love this trail because it's easy to navigate and you can make your hike as long and as difficult as you want. It ranges from very easy to difficult just based on which way you go. The views of Garden of the Gods are so pretty! This is a very family and dog friendly trail. There is always parking available. There is a little lake towards the East side that lots of people send there hot pups in to cool down. There is also a dog of leash designated area. My only con to this trail is there isn't much shade on the trails. I wouldn't go on a hot sunny day.

Great family hike! 7km

Nice easy and beautiful trail.

Not too crowded, beautiful, easy hike

Awesome trail. Do it at least once a week

Many trails to choose from with tons to see. Dog friendly but must be on leash. great place for walking/running/mountain biking. Also good place for climbing.

Beautiful trail
