Great hike. I live nearby and still take some wrong turns. Nice scenery, shaded part of the way.

Great trail for the pup. Boots work as there is currently no packed snow or ice, yet. Few markings along the trail, but it is well worn most of the way, cell service throughout the park so you can use the app when you hit a few unlabeled trail connections. Area nearest Hewlett Packard had the best views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak.

Great trail! Easy hike! Possibility to go off main trail with no signs/markings and many social trails. Since I had it on record I could see when I edged off the trail. Great views. I went clockwise on the loop. Next time will do the hike in the evening going counterclockwise in attempt to catch a ‘sunset’ on the upper ridge coming back to parking lot.

It was first time hiking in Garden of the Gods and this was the perfect trail. If you go early enough, we got there at 9, it wasn’t so bad. When we left at 11, it was super crowded. Next time, we’ll go even earlier.

Close to home and has about any type of trail you are looking for.

beautiful place to be! the trail is beautiful with plenty of things to see. BE AWARE: there are wildfire midigators working around the trail and in the forest. they are there M-F from 8 am to about 3:30 pm they do a good job keeping everyone in mind but just be aware if you are sondering they could probably use a heads up! currently they are over by HP.

A fun run and nice variety of trails for mountain biking/trail running of different skill levels.

Saw quite a bit of wildlife out, nice easy to moderate hike if you just want to get out.

Fun to run. I've heard that a mom bear and her cub is hanging out down over, be advised.

Great hike with many trail options ranging in difficulty. Watch out for rattlesnakes!

Such a great hike in the middle of the city! A little hot in the open stretches so bring lots of water. Wonderful views, you forget you are in the middle of town.

Great for an easy evening run/hike, or nature walk with kids. Only downside- trails not marked well.

This is a terrific trail system with many offshoots. Make sure to take any of them, you really can't get lost and it makes the run, hike or bike almost limitless. Worth the trip!

Nice that it’s so accessible, frustrating that trails are hard to follow - partly due to very poor signage and partly due to inherent difficulty with trails that pass over rocky outcropping. Tried this loop 5 times and actually stayed on the intended path twice.

The ridge on the beginning of this trail is beautiful at sunset!

Great scenic multi-trail. Conveniently located and surprisingly beautiful.

Short loops but tons of good terrain for mountain biking. Bent my rear derallier hanger on one of the rock formations but I still managed to have a great ride with some low gears that still worked. Had 8miles by the time I finished.

Find a natural water run-off and follow it up to the top of the ridge. All kinds of cool trails up there and amazing views. Saw rabbits and lizards. Watch for rattlesnakes as there are plenty of hiding spots for them. Watch your step!

I used to live really close to this park, so I used to walk to it. There are a lot of deer trails and habit trails so be careful to stay on the main path. It is nice in the late afternoon, but it is often very very crowded and hot in the afternoon. Pro Tip- visit Josh&John's Ice Cream which is a quick walk away (formally Starbucks).

Great in town park. I'd say this loop is closer to an "easy" rating than a "moderate".

Nice hike with some good views of pikes peak

Good running or biking trail.
