Its a short trail but felt very sick after doing it. It may have been because of the heat. It was definitely not easy for me.

Good short trail. Did it with my 2 year old and we did fine. Horses walked passed and there was a bit of horse poop on the trail.

This trail is a short hike to get to the actual siamese twin rocks. Many beautiful places for pictures and if you go off trail a bit, you can see some more beautiful views. If you’re looking for more of a hike, I would not consider this trail but it is definitely worth making a trip.

This trail is best done right at sunrise. We did it at about 6:30am and there were only locals in the whole park walking, jogging and biking... no tourists yet and no crowds. Still some bunnies out and about which indicates to me that we were the first people to arrive for the day, since they had not yet been disturbed. The 2nd reason to do this at sunrise is the great lighting of the Siamese twin rocks and sunlit view of Pike’s peak. Such a great photo and vantage point from above the twins. To say this is a “hike” is a bit of an overstatement. This is an easy short stroll, but well worth it because it is the only way to get the awesome view of the Twins, which remain out of view from the main park road loop.

Honestly, while some of the sights at Garden of the Gods were wonderful, the whole park had the sensation of an intense tourist trap. It would have been best at sunrise; we still went early with not many other people contesting the park though. It’s just that it’s so well paved that it feels like walking around an amusement park; this would be a wonderful small hike for kids and people not looking for a long trek.

Breathtaking views of Pikes Peak, stretches of dirt and rock surfaces, excellent for kiddos! Highly recommend!

There's not much to this trail, but the view is unique and so worth it because of the Siamese Twins rock formations and great view of Pikes Peak. Best at sunrise or sunset.

Very easy hike. Not much to see on your way up, but it’s worth it! We went on a Saturday morning at 10 and it was lightly crowded!

Palmer Trail to Strausenburg to part of Scotsman Loop. Went by Siamese Twins. Took a lot of jogs off trail to scramble on the rocks with my little boy. Saw it snowing on Pikes Peak, stopped early due to rain. Parked at P13. A lot of traffic noise but not a lot of people on these trails today.

Very easy walking nice scenery, plus it connects to other trails if you want to make it a longer hike. Another nice feature is you can park at the trading post and walk to the trailhead.

Some of the best red rocks in Garden of the Gods. Easy, short hike from the parking lot to a great payoff and big open area. A tiny bit crowded, but much less than other parts of the park. A necessary spot when visiting!

There is so much to be said about this trail... it's super scenic, fun, but not a long commitment. And the Twins are totally worth it.
