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.

So many trails in this complex, most are multiuse, some hiking only. Warm day and the relative lack of trees along most of route made this a so-so experience. Well travelled trails with some technical climbing walls in some places just off the trail and ponds in others. Worth a look!

Pretty open spaces nice wide main trails. Great for a decent hike with dogs
