Absolutely beautiful views near the top! A challenge on the way up, but certainly worth it.

Loved all the water!

One of our favorite hikes in the area! We weren’t experienced the first time we hiked it (new to Colorado) & the most difficult part was getting up the steep hill to the trailhead. Make sure to park down in town & NOT up the road to the trail, as others have mentioned. Garden of Eden is truly the best part of the trek.

This trail is challenging in the beginning with rocky switchbacks up to the top. Recommended to wear shoes that have good traction and if you have any ankle or foot issues, extra support.

Once we got to the Garden of Eden, it was well worth the work. The colors through the garden with the creek running along displayed fall in Colorado at its finest. We went through to the reservoir and got to see the clouds coming in with Pikes Peak in the background and it was an awesome experience being up with the clouds. With the clouds rolling into the Garden of Eden coming back, it felt like an enchanted forest with some of the freshest air I've ever experienced. We had times of sun and rain so pack different layers for Fall treks.

The hike back went very fast because it was all down incline and we found ourselves wanting more. A waterfall, the Garden of Eden with a peaceful creek, the reservoir with Pikes Peak.... made for an outstanding day of hiking.

Our hike took us about 4 hours from parking lot to reservoir and back.
