Fun

This trail has a good view of the entire landscape but it’s so plain that it doesn’t challenge me at all. I love it here when I need to walk with my baby boomer relatives or my lazy dog.

Fairly flat so not much of a workout but def pretty. Could be good for mom/dad and also Pam - no cliff faces. You see 14er pikes peak for much of it, set against the foreground of red rock formations

Great hike. I live nearby and still take some wrong turns. Nice scenery, shaded part of the way.

Love this trail! When we want a quick and relaxing hike, we do this one. Dogs love it too.

This trail was a lot of fun. We went the day after we got some good snow fall so parts of the trail was icy from it being packed down. After bridge 6 it’s a bit steep for sure. I used spikes and had no issues. Beautiful trail!

Great trail for the pup. Boots work as there is currently no packed snow or ice, yet. Few markings along the trail, but it is well worn most of the way, cell service throughout the park so you can use the app when you hit a few unlabeled trail connections. Area nearest Hewlett Packard had the best views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak.

Beautiful hike! Steady incline to the summit but not very hard at all. Awesome views. Please pick up your dogs poop! I’ve done this trail multiple times and have always found people just leaving their dogs poop bag along the trail. There is a trash can at the bottom, it isn’t hard to do. If you find a lot of bags littered, consider picking it up and disposing of it yourself. Let’s keep the trail clean!

Went out here today, it was a lot of fun.

Snow was approx 8-12 inches deep on much of the road making it quite a challenge. Several people needed pulled out after getting stuck

Views on this road are amazing, but I did not encounter anything that would make this anywhere near “moderate” without the snow.

Ahhh, this luxurious park seems to have it all! It boasts trails of all levels, off leash dog area, and some fantastic views. I cannot remember which we hiked, as I feel we meandered between a few, but the experience was one to cherish. We hiked with our 7 year old and small dog among the red rock landscape. Coming up over a hill to take in the view of The Garden of the Gods at golden hour was nothing short of magnificent. I will certainly return to this open space to explore the remaining trails we were unable to complete.

Drove the hour + from Denver to check this place out. Very cool rock formations, some of which are very delicate. More delicate than they look. Spectacular colors and crevasses.

Was sad and upsetting and actually nauseating to see a large group of tourists going off trail, climbing all over the rock formations.With Absolutely no regard to the signs prohibiting climbing. Absolutely no regard for the delicate formations, some of which are just clay and literally shatters off the sides. This place won't be around much longer with such disrespect for the rock formations happening daily it seems, so catch it while you can (on the path, not on the rocks).

Nice views, not much traffic. You can see all the way down to Pueblo resivior from the top. Quite a bit of walking thru snow this time of year.

Great trail, so long as you’re prepared. If you find a 4+ inch fixed blade Gerber knife along the scramble, his name is Brütus; please treat him kindly, sharpen him weekly

Really enjoyed each time we’ve visited

Nice area for a short or long hike.

Great trail! Easy hike! Possibility to go off main trail with no signs/markings and many social trails. Since I had it on record I could see when I edged off the trail. Great views. I went clockwise on the loop. Next time will do the hike in the evening going counterclockwise in attempt to catch a ‘sunset’ on the upper ridge coming back to parking lot.

A nice little trail that overlooks 7 Falls. The scenery is perfect, overlooking Manitou and Colorado Springs in the distance.

The only thing was that the trail gets very gravelly at the top of one of the slopes. With no guard rail or anything, it could take a little miss-footing to send someone over the edge of the cliff. So be careful of that.

Love this trail........and do so does my dog!

Incredible!

Just finished this trail today. After bridge 6 u need spikes on the shoes as it is really icy. We went 1 mile past bridge 7 and it was awesome. My hike today was 4.5 hours, 1,271 ascent and 4.7 miles total. Great day

This trail was very scenic and beautiful. Easy hike and worth the views!

It was first time hiking in Garden of the Gods and this was the perfect trail. If you go early enough, we got there at 9, it wasn’t so bad. When we left at 11, it was super crowded. Next time, we’ll go even earlier.

Highly recommend spikes on shoes this time of year, practically a necessity. Fairly short way up for an incredible pay off

Beautiful shirt trail!

Beautiful!!!
