The trail seems a bit off in a few places. Otherwise nice trail.

Hiking

Fascinating huge rock formations, but overall less to it than we were anticipating. Family friendly with a few route options, some shorter and some longer. Mostly paved. We recommend the full 4-mile loop which provides good views from a distance and up close. It was very crowded and very warm on June 30.

Great trail - easy for kids too. Very hot with little shade - so bring water!

Occasional shade. Pretty good trail. Some areas merged into paved tourist spots, so it was a little crowded there depending on time of day/year you hike. Would recommend to come early to avoid crowds. Parking in the main lot can be difficult when it’s prime visiting time. Would recommend to park in other lots around the area and find your way to the trail. We did hike a little longer than anticipated since I wasn’t paying attention in one area. Overall still an easy and very beautiful hike.

Pretty busy during lunch time. I plan to go back earlier in the day next time to escape the crowds.

Garden of the Gods is a must see if your visiting from out of town, but because it’s such a tourist hot spot it’s always crowded and hard to find parking spots. This exact trail isn’t marked so following it precisely is a bit hard, but once you’re there you can really just walk around wherever and explore. If you have a stroller, stay inside the big main looped road that encompasses the largest rocks because those trails are mostly paved or easy gravel. This trail map starts you on paved sidewalk but when you get to a street crossing, the rest is rocky and not stroller friendly.

Well maintained, beautiful path that is accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels. Really pretty views of the rocks throughout and definitely worth a trip if you have the time. I've been in the summer and winter, and it was gorgeous both times of the year. It can get super crowded though, so try and go on a weekday or early in the morning if you are able.

Excellent trail! Beautiful rocks. Trailhead is a good bit away from the visitor center parking. Near the end the map directs you to a trail that isn’t marked well. Some decently shaded areas but mostly unshaded. A few very cool rocks to take pictures next to. Guide said 3.7 miles, but with the parking lot and a time or two off the trail, we wound up hiking over 5 miles, making this a bit harder/ more like a moderate level. Good for kids and dogs.

Very crowded, hard to park if you get there by mid morning. Nice views but prefer more secluded trail. Also to many trails so you really need to follow the app if you want to stay on your route.

Nice trail. Pretty views. Not too steep or rocky in any one area. Great little three miler to get fit. The parking lot is super close to the trail head. Bathrooms on the other side of the parking. Dog friendly.

Obviously, it’s extremely busy so get there at 9 (when the visitor center opens) or earlier

So I’ve spent the last week at the Rocky Mountain national Park and decided to take a day trip to Manitou Springs to hike pikes Peak and I would say that was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. This was by far the best hike I think I’ve ever done. I really enjoyed it! I’m a solo hiker and I started around 5:30 in the morning. A lot of people said that the first 3 miles were the hardest but it wasn’t too bad honestly. I would like to say that I didn’t think that the incline was too intense at any point of climbing pikes. I will say that once I got a couple miles from the top it was a little bit more challenging just because of the altitude but make sure to do deep breathing exercises take your time and I had no issues at all. I will say the construction at the very top with a little frustrating just because they require you to take a mile detour down to the road and then finish hiking your way back up on the road. I did convince the construction workers to let me walk past towards the right though and it brought me right to the summit house. Also after this trail you have to try their donuts as a reward for getting your butt all the way to the top of the mountain! Do this trail! I did read that this trail has the potential to be slightly miserable if the weather isn’t nice and I really lucked out because it was chilly, not too hot, not too windy and no storms.

Was great but I actually think in the heat with a six and eight year old, it was more moderate than easy. We took short cut back through garden loop which was lovely.

Did the upper half of the loop. A lot of this trail is out in the sun, so be sure to bring plenty of water and sunblock/hat. It’s a beautiful trail and very easy to walk/hike.
