not really what i would consider a hike, but a nice pull off to a cool spot.

Easy peasy fun loop with rewarding views and awesome photo opportunities.

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.

Great rock formations and the view of pike’s peak is awesome with how the rock formations “frame” it. Easy.

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.

Not crowded at all. Awesome views and an easy hike

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

Beautiful views of the formations. Early morning or weekdays are the best way to avoid heavy traffic.

I walk this trail all the time . It is a easy walk , very beautiful take your camera . You never know what you will see there ,bear ,deer ect . . The veiws are worth the trip

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.

Smaller and much more crowded than expected. All trails are paved unless you want to climb on the rocks.

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

Pretty low traffic on this trail. It ended up being about 4.5 miles. Some areas of the trail are poorly maintained. You will follow several trails so be sure to have some sort of map. There are lots of angles of the Garden of the Gods to take pictures or just observe. Overall it was a decent trail but I prefer a bit more of a challenge.

Great little trail with one great view after the other.

Not a very difficult hike. Park is pretty crowded and this trail is a nice break from the people.

Very good for families with young kids. Parking can be brutal but you’ll find a spot

As far as hikes go, this was super easy and about a quarter of it was on paved walkways. Good leisurely walk to get lots of great photos of the amazing rock formations. I recommend getting there early and heading clockwise to get you through the heavily trafficked areas first before the crowds show up. The latter 3/4 of the route is all easy trail with much less traffic.

Super short trail with amazing views

Absolutely stunning. This is definitely the best trail I’ve seen in America so far. This is good for any skill level hiker, and even children.

It was more walk than a hike. We were stopping and taking photos so frequently. And it was pretty hot as well.
