Great family friendly hike with mostly paved walkways. The rocks are gorgeous and some you can safely climb to get outstanding views.

Beautiful morning hike. Gorgeous views of the rocks and Pikes Peak.

It was a beautiful day for these trails! A decent amount of foot traffic, but all main trails were open and accessible. Was a great little afternoon excursion!

Nice easy trail with good views of the formations and rocks for kids to climb on at the top. Heavily trafficked though.

Took this trail today while meandering through the Garden — beware of very slick mud and large puddles in many places! Gorgeous views, definitely worth the extra effort.

The park opens early at 5AM, so I recommend getting there before the crowds so you can truly enjoy the rock formations, which are incredible!
