Relaxing and beautifully scenic short trail. Plenty of rock areas and vistas. Good for a beginner warm up if you want to hit the surrounding longer trails. Entire loop is no more than a half mile but some uphill/downhill to get that blood pumping. Hit this loop then scoot over to Ute to fully explore this area of Garden of the Gods. Highly recommend to hit the center garden as you’re driving out.

Great hike with kids 14 and 11. Great views. Even found a rock left by other hikers. Left one of our own. Hi from Hattiesburg MS

This trial was very short, but did have some rocky areas. Well worth it. Great views surrounding.

Great views & quick hike. I’d actually call the terrain more Moderate than easy (some rocky parts where it’s not 100% clear which way the trail leads, but the area is small enough you couldn’t get lost). Perfect tacked on after a longer hike elsewhere in the park.
