Great hike. Easy. Very little up and down. Well maintained. The views were really pretty. Hubby and I picnicked under the Siamese Twins. Fun day hike.

Not too busy, even on a beautiful fall Saturday. Sure, it's touristy, but if you live here and have a spare hour or too, don't forget to check out your beautiful back yard!

Gorgeous, crowded, and very easy.

More like a walk in the park as compared to a hike in the woods, but still worthy of the effort, some cool scenery,give yourself a day here if you have the time

Garden of the Gods is simply breathtaking. The sacred spires of rock are among the most spectacular and memorable in Colorado.

We rode up over the rocks and were surprised and delighted at each turn.

The majority of this loop is not paved. Moderate exertion, but I'm from the east coast and it was my first day in Colorado. The rock formations are cool for the area, and I'm glad we took the time to do the loop. The main paved areas were ridiculously crowded on a Sunday. We parked at the visitor center and hiked from there. Bring plenty of water if it's warm as its almost all in direct sunlight.

Just freaking amazing! I really appreciate how there were a few spots you could actually climb on and around while most of the beauty of the park is preserved.
