Nice red sandstone formations. Easy paved road.

Very pretty rock formations. Flat walk/hike mostly on pavement.

If you are an avid hiker, this is not very exciting.

This trail gave me a tour of complete garden of the gods area. The landscape is so beautiful I can't explain in words.. Must do for everyone. Loved it.

Beautiful hikes. Pretty easy hiking with great views!

Pretty easy hike, paved mostly so great for littles. Awesome rock formations to check out too!

The Charlie Buckskin trail follows the main road for quite a ways, but it is away from a lot of the crowds in the central garden. It does offer a good opportunity to view wildlife and wildflowers.

great relaxing paved trails. saw deer and rabbits. Some areas are off the paved bits and have stunning rock formations.

Amazing way to see Garden of the Gods Park! Don’t stick to just the usual touristy spots!

Fairly easy trails to follow. Lots of options to make it a longer hike. We took our two small dogs and they had a great time. Trails weren't crowded, but we did see other people out hiking or trail running. Better earlier in the morning for dogs. Not too many places to refill water so plan accordingly especially if bringing your dog. We did see warning signs for rattlesnakes but didn't see any snakes. There is a nice picnic area and restrooms about halfway along the hike at Pullout 13, Scotsman Picnic Area.

Awesome and stroller friendly!

Soooo beautiful! I had a great time.

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.

Very easy hike. Not really for a workout, or you need to trail run it. We started out on this loop which takes you around the Garden of Gods, then halfway we cut through the inner circle which brings you closer to the rocks. Definitely worth creating your own paths of the different trails that take you around and through the Garden of Gods

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!

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.

Fun, easy hike with good views. Trail and area is highly populated.

One of my favorite places to go and walk around.

Lots of people, but worth it because beautiful and unique rock formations. Make the trip if in the area. And it’s free.

Gorgeous! And easy with kiddos.

My first Family hike when my son and myself moved out there! Uncle Matt took us and we kept coming back... deer, bunnie's, great history, instruction available for climbing the rocks, paved and off road paths, and kissing camels.. I loved it, and my 4 yr old Lars learned to like exercise and make friends here.. it's best description is heaven..

Trail in a beautiful setting. There is a whole network of trails so it is almost impossible to follow the trail marked out here. someone mentioned that it was mostly paved. There are some paved trails here but this loop is all crushed gravel material (natural to the area). Doing the trail in the evening is beautiful because part of the rock formations are hit by the sun while the lower parts are not creating some stunning contrasts. There are several parking areas along the road loop which means you can pick up the trail at different points. This loop is actually a combination of several trails with different names. I found it helpful to take a picture of the map on the sign at the park and have it on my phone to help me navigate the system by the trails' different names.

Amazing walk with access to gardens and some great views of entire area!

My mom and I hiked this loop today in about 2 hours and 40 minutes comfortably with some stops and for pictures and water along the way. It was a great walk with wonderful views every step of the way!

Good trail with great views from all directions of the Garden’s rock formations. There are lots of other trails that cross this one, so having this app was very helpful in keeping us on track.

Nice easy stroll with no crowds
