Very cool trail. Caves, unreal rock formations, and a great lookout point. I would advise to do this before going to the Garden of the Gods observation area, just because Garden of the Gods is the best scenery in the region. Do yourself a favor and let the excitement build up by doing this trail first before going to the Garden of the Gods.

awesome at sunset!!!

Hidden surprises

The observation trail is a short walk accessible for nearly everyone, so you won't be physically challenged, but there are is the river-to-river trail near by that is both scenic and challenging. Beautiful rock formations and incredible views make this a must see.
