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.
