Red Rock Canyon Open Space is a 789-acre city park in Colorado Springs. It is situated on the west side of the city, adjacent to Manitou Springs and south of U.S. Route 24. The park consists of a series of parallel ridges (called "hogbacks") and eroded canyons, a continuation of the same sandstone rocks of the Fountain Formation that make up Garden of the Gods a few miles to the north.

I really enjoyed the hike, I did mostly the whole trail. It probably took around 4hrs but beautiful scenery. Definitely will be back!

Awesome! Trails are well maintained with plenty of places to go off and climb/explore. A few good spots with wildflowers. Also saw an area for biking (ramps and things) as well as an off-leash dog trail. Something for everyone there!

Hiked all over this open space covered in beautiful wild flowers and filled with red rock formations. Pretty large trail system but Not overly marked in some areas. There were maps at the beginning but they're slightly confusing. We ended up on a much longer hike than anticipated and endured some rain but it was still worth it!great exercise in an astounding landscape-can't beat it!
