Connector from main loop trail to Siamese Twins trail in Garden of the Gods Sand rocky surface. Lots of horseback riding. Good hike to see lots of views.

Absolutely breathtaking views at Garden of the Gods. Went with Dale and my sister back when we visited in 2013. Saw someone rock climbing while we were there and some deer hanging out near one of the paths. Would love to go back someday to hike a bit more of the area. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice ridge trail, the views off to the west into garden and off to the right homes nestled among Rick and shrubs.

Crowded almost always but early in the morning.

The original submitted drawn trail is actually five seperate trails, which does inclyude the Scotsman loop, but also includes the Palmer, Perkins Central Garden, Strausenback, and Siamese Twins Trails- more of a custom loop than a single trail.

Pretty crowded, but Garden of The Gods is always gorgeous! If you're looking for a little peace and quiet with Mother Nature, this ISNT the hike for you. I suggest going deeper in the mountains. But very accessible if you are in Colorado Springs.

Cute (small) trail, more of a nice meandering walk on the back end of the park. Not quite what I would consider a "hike" but great for those new to the area and inexperienced. Trial links up to quite a few other trails along the way as well.

We are new to the area so we are still discovering trails around here. This was a nice trail, we finished at a good time as foot traffic was beginning to pick up. Saw lots of birds, a deer, beautiful scenery. I like that they do trail rides for people on horseback.
