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 was expecting a hike and ended up doing nothing more than walking down a wide dirt road. There were some cool things to see, but I wouldn’t go back there unless it was to trail ride or run.
Not a good hiking spot.

Easy and lovely day-hiking, and there are plenty of easy biking trails for medium (2nd or 3rd grade) kids and up. The walking trails are easy, and plenty of rocks to scramble. Some of the biking trails are a bit more difficult. The bike park / activity area between the parking lots is a great place to polish some skills and have some easy fun!
