Went at 6:30pm and waited out a short thunderstorm, only to be followed by a gorgeous sunset with awesome light on the rocks. Would recommend going around this time if you can, it's much less busy than midday and the lighting is fantastic. Hike is mostly flat and you can climb up the rocks to get better views if you're feeling adventurous.

Gorgeous views! Like everyone says, arrive early because it gets busy!! Awesome to see and can't wait to get back there again.

Less of a hike, more of a paved homage to these natural wonders. We went at sunrise so was not crowded yet so it was very enjoyable. If you are in the springs, worth a visit for sure.

Very very busy trail. Was disappointed everything was paved though. The views were beautiful.

If it were less of a madhouse, I'd probably enjoy it more, but I appreciate the draw. The scenery is beautiful, and very convenient to Colorado Springs. It's an easy walk, and the areas further from the main "garden" are less crowded.

Walked it in just under an hour with my 4-year old German Shepherd
