While not as popular as Garden of the Gods this is still a very popular attraction and parking becomes limited on busy weekends. Interesting rock formations pop up throughout the hike and are always a nice surprise. Maps are present at most of the trail intersections and help navigate the large trail system in this open space.

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!
