This place is over rated. We went to this lake and found dead fish scattered all around the lake. The smell wasn’t nice and it was dirty.

The hike itself was pretty but there was a part where I could not figure out where the trail went. I ended up on a different trail through the rocks and had to find my way back to this one. Overall good little hike with some pretty views.

Beautiful views. Easy hike. Safe area.

Good hike, a few hard spots, beautiful views.

awesome hike!

Beautiful area. We went this past April and it snowed about 2-3” while there which made for some awesome pictures! Really like Garden of the Gods. Very peaceful place.

Very pretty hike. The entire trail is paved and fairly flat. One of the easiest and prettiest hikes in the Garden of The Gods. If you're lucky you might see some rock climbers scaling the beautiful red cliffs! Water fountains and bathrooms located at the trail head.

We enjoyed our hike of the outer trails. The trails are dirt any different elevations. Between the map we picked up at visitors Center and the signage never got lost. we ended with the main trail that is a cement path. You can go off onto other dirt paths and miss the crowds. It appears most people want to stay on the cement path and walk at their leisure.

Easy hike with lots of varied green views and close to the city!

One of my favorite places on my road trip to Colorado this year! So gorgeous and easy trails to relax but enjoy the outdoors. Warning it is very crowded!!! Fun places to boulder or even rock climb!

Excellent. Variety of options to veer off. Beautiful terrain. Kids 9 and 13 handled it.

Fun hike, good views, fairly easy.

short, but nice.

It was child friendly. Especially, playing pokémon go. Many species of beautiful birds to see. Mountain view is beyond words.

The views were amazing, but the sheer number of people was huge drawback. Still, I don't regret braving the crowds. Lots of great photo-ops. Fun Jr. Ranger program available for youngsters.

Decent hike with good views of interesting rocks. The trail is hard to follow in some spots and many other trails cross this one. Having this app to keep us on track was very helpful. This trail is in the middle of Colorado Springs, and traffic noise detracted from our enjoyment along the northeastern portion of the trail.

And easy, touristy place to take out-of- town family. The formations always make for fun pictures

Beautiful views and rock formations. This was our first time in this area of Colorado. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and visited here twice in 3 days. We walked/hiked the first time. It was easy and a nice opportunity to get acclimated to the higher elevation. Second time we drove around. Great view of Pike’s Peak can be found at the parking lot near Ridge Road.

Beautiful morning walk. For a lovely hour-long hike, I recommend taking the Mesa Trail to the Quarry Pass Trail to Red Canyon Path. This will allow beautiful views of the Garden of the Gods, a reservoir, and the quarry. Leave your car in the second parking lot and hike from the left (east) end of the first parking lot. This is the only hike we did at Red Rock Canyon, but we were amazed at the beauty so close to town.

Awesome trail system... Views are amazing... has some nice elevation change and really didn't see any other hikers once past a mile out. The hike I downloaded was a bit short so took some of the other available trails to add a bit of distance. shout-out to alltrails pro... makes altering a route on the fly easy!

It’s an ok trail. The rock formations are very nice, but lose their charm over time. Path is very rocky and slippery at times. Ended up on the Edna Nature Trail which was confusing. The walk is also accompanied by the lovely smell of horse manure from the stable nearby. The closeness to the Springs is nice, but much prettier trails within distance imo.

Beautiful picturesque with great photos ops! Fairly easy - mostly paved. Get there early to beat the heat and crowds

Really beautiful hike with great views from Mesa up at the mountains as well as down toward Garden of the Gods. Nice woodsy/low brush sections as well. We started to the right and returned on Mesa which was a nice way to do it, but we had some difficulty finding trail markings at the start and ended up following Contemplative and Sand Canyon at the beginning.

Beautiful - always love Red Rocks. It seems that we choose another path each time we go. So happy that CoS turned the quarry into something we could enjoy time and time again.
