Gorgeous! Easy walking trails with stunning views!

Nice easy trail. The area is beautiful. We even got to enjoy some light rock climbing.

North (main) lot to Trading post stitching parts of different loops together. Had to hustle back with an almost dead phone so used some road too. Very touristy. May be less busy other times of the week. I was there on a Friday afternoon. Starting at 5 stars I'll minus 1/2 star each for traffic and amount of people rating it a 4 star overall.

Visited back in early December. Busy area and more of a walk then a hike but it is truly stunning. Quite a busy area so best to get there early.

The weather was perfect but the Park was really crowded.

Absolutely breath taking.

I started from the north parking lot and went through the inside/middle area to get some quick shots of the formations, then went to the outside trail (non-paved one) to complete the loop. I included the Rocks and Vistas Garden Loop + Garden of the Gods Loop + Siamese Twins Loop within my hike. There wasn't many people on a Tuesday morning due to the high winds and snow so it was fairly empty. A great trail overall but definitely more of a touristy/nature style walk/hike instead of an actual hike. Also, on the outer loop where horses are used there is a lot of poop on the trails.

Hardly a hike but of course beautiful. Crowded due to tourism but what can you do, it’s quite the sight to see.

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.

WARNING LOTS AND LOTS OF STAIRS

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!

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.

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

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.
