I hiked this trail a few days ago. it was very scenic and easier then I thought. A very good trail for beginners.

just getting into fitness and hiking and this is an amazing trail.


Easy trail if you stick to the formation area; it’s all paved. Going to the actual trail is a little more like a real hike instead of a stroll. Trail is still very easy, even if you do the four mile loop. More of a nature walk than a hike; if you are looking for a hike or something remotely challenging look elsewhere. Views are beautiful though!

This hike reminds me of bald hikes in NC/TN/VA. You're not climbing the highest mountain, but certainly are getting the best views.

I would give it 5 stars for the views, however, have to take one back for being crowded and at parts, too "touristy", which is a good thing if you are a tourist, I suppose

Nice, fun loop. You can really make it your own as it has alot of other trails surrounding it. We didn't do the whole loop this time as the parking lots near it were at capacity so we ended up on the other side of the park. We did this trail on a Sunday morning, alot of people and cars if possible go on a weekday.

Absolutely amazing! So didn’t wanna come home! A must see. :)

Very pretty! Easy. Enjoyed getting a photo of Pikes Peak through the window between the twins!

Super pretty!!! It’s really fun to hike around or drive around. Lots of different trails with views of rocks and mountains.

Good for family. There is a little area kids can play on the rocks. Great for some family photos to.

I having hiked, ran and mountain biked this trail system a few times during my time in Colorado. Lots of fun with trails for all skill levels. Trail is a little narrow in some parts so I wouldn’t descend from up high on a mountain bike if you aren’t moderately experienced.

Easy hike, moderate crowd, very well marked trails and easy to follow maps. Beautiful scenery!

Easy, mellow trail that’s great for families with small children and dogs. Not as heavily trafficked as the rest of the nearby trails in Garden of the Gods. Gorgeous views for photographers!

It’s cool to be near the main rocks, but this trail is very crowded. Try another trail to get more solitude.

Very easy pretty loop

good easy quick loop

Lovely at sunrise!

Very easy hike with some cool rock formations that provide great picture opportunities. Completed with a 1.5 yr old and 4 yr old without difficulty.

Very beautiful. Easy terrain. Limited parking.

Parked and hiked a bit, walked back and drove to the next parking spot. Hiked a bit again. Gorgeous, paved trails.

This is always our first stop when we are in town. Great easy hike.

Combination of paved and gravel trails surrounding and through the park and gorgeous rock formations. Not terribly crowded on a chilly February morning, but the views would be worth a visit even in the busier summer months.

Love this trail! Gorgeous views and easy enough that my 4yr old can enjoy it.

Worth the visit but not exactly wilderness. Very crowded and noisy. Not a place to escape.

Good loop. Lots of people but plenty of parking

Just amazing. Must do!

Nice trail - a little to crowded in the summer months to enjoy
