Nice walk around huge rocks with scenic views. Wear appropriate shoes if want to climb small rocks but can be managed without as the walking paths are paved.

my first ever full trail! Hard going up, really hard but you push on through the pain ! At the peak...wow what a view! imo Great place to have a heart attack.

great afternoon hike. started at section 16 parking lot at 4 30 in mid october. got done by 6 45 and it was starting to get cool. lots of nice views on the way down. pretty good incline workout.

Great hiking trail but almost no signs. We got off course a bunch!

The Bretag portion of the trail is a great chance to step back a bit from the formations to get a really fantastic view of them as a whole.

Fun hike with the pup, loose gravel was the only downside- which is nearly everywhere in this region.

Not a bad trail, I didn't find the views all that spectacular. The ending your basically scrambling .02 miles. After 7th bridge you particular finished. However, I would suggest exploring some of the other trails that branch out. Beautiful views.

This map needs to be updated urgently. The trail continues under Academy Blvd, passing under Interstate 25 and connecting to the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail. New concrete is being poured extending the trail East past Austinbluffs to Powers and under Powers.

Love it.

Easy hike at the base of Blodgett Peak. Good for kids. Brought our 4-year old who did well the whole time.

A great leisure trail to spend half the day hiking. Plenty of free parking if you come early and incline isnt that difficult.

Nice little trail to hike, it can be crowded depending on time of day. There are several other trails this links into you can explore in the garden of the gods.

The trail lived up to it's rating! There are multiple paths that lead up, and ended up going over two Boulder fields. Was fun will do it again!

I like this area as it has several surrounding trails and pretty scenery.

A few encounters with cyclists going too fast, but otherwise WONDERFUL. Great views, a bit challenging but not truly difficult, and well-kept. I will definitely do this one again!

stopped here after doing May's peak to see the falls with my two dogs. very crowded with a lot of narrow areas so wasnt the best with the pooches in tow. the views were fairly nice and the hike is easy and relaxing. unfortunately I was waiting for a while for a bunch of groups to come up a narrow set of stairs and right as i finally started to descend a man with a large Shepard decides to ascend at the same time... I back up and wait for him to cross and he let's his shepherd get in my dogs' face and there was some reactivity. not a great way to end a walk. I try to use courtesy and be polite on trails i just wish others would do the same. not a walk I'd ever do again but its nice to see the falls.

Nice short, relaxing hike. Begins on the high drive (1.2mi) until the trail junction. A few hikers and bikers up until this point. it's the rightmost trail beyond the wire fencing. it has no markers, but the trail is dug out and easy to follow. once I hit this I was completely solo. beautiful 360 degree views at the top. amazing. trail gets shrouded in greenery and trees as you move up. not too much snow or ice yet. I enjoyed it.

Great place to hike for the day and free parking. I would suggest coming early as it gets quite busy. There are plenty of trails to hike here if your looking for solitude.

just a beautiful walk. so much to see.

Easy hike. It is more of the walk. Reason for 4 stars is the amount of trails that exist and you have to guess what trail to take. My six year old did it with ease.

Wow. Garden of the Gods is amazing on every level. The trail was paved. There are no markings on signs for the Perkins Trail. I think the signs read Central Garden Trail. Easy walk with incredible awe inspiring views. Keep your eyes peeled for Big Horn Sheep. Some people saw one on the white rock formation.
