This is a very easy hike. The initial ascent from the small main parking lot is a little steep in parts but not bad. Once you get up to the Siamese Twins there is a magnificent view. Be mindful of the trail you follow, for some reason we hike along and end up on the west side of the parking lot and have to take another trail down, not a big deal but if you don't know the trail you might panic. It's a small area so easy to find your way around. Great quick hike, no more than an hour if staying in this trail area. The only downside is that it seems like in the past few years Garden of the Gods park trails are not well maintained and they see horrific foot traffic with the enormous amount of tourists that come through this area. I steer clear of the park in the summer. I only visit in the spring/fall and off times to avoid the throngs of tourists.
