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.

Amazing memories. Absolutely worth visiting. The scenery is gorgeous.

Fun place to be. Many reasons to stop and enjoy.

Great trails close to home!

Great trail! Went with a large group of adults && kids! We all had a blast!

This trail was a very easy and chill walk about. Has very nice sceneries of the mountains and a lot of deer hangouts.

Fun park, fit for all ages. Quarry was an interesting landmark worth checking out. Easy to lose the trail, but plenty of trails to get back on.

Great trail, Contemplative tall has great views!

This trail was well marked and had some decent views. We brought our dog and passed a few others with dogs. There is an off leash dog trail as well. A few words of advice, go early in the day. We finished around 1, and there were a lot of people starting out. Also, make sure it was dry for a few days, as it was pretty muddy when we went.
