  • Beautiful and impressive place for hiking. There are many trails to choose and the park is huge, so definitely everyone will find something fitting - easy, medium or a bit harder trail. Rock formations are not so big like in Garden of the Gods, but for nature lovers surely great because of variety of shapes. Even experienced hiker will be busy for few days to be able to say that he saw everything. For me it's the best park in Colorado Springs.
  • This place is a hidden gem. We just moved here and never imagine a park with such great views and hike paths in the middle of the city. We took our 6 and 8 year old through the Great View Trail and Cheyenne Trail and they had no problem with. Each hike path has visual markers identifying what it's suited for such as hiking or mountain biking. Plenty of places for great photo ops. Multiple places to park for free all around the park.
