The best place to scamper around rock formation in Colorado Springs.
The Garden of the Gods are these amazing rock formations beneath Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. This park is for everyone. As you might expect, it's a really busy park. If possible, I recommend going early in the morning on a week day. An additional perk of early mornings is that the colors are spectacular during a sunrise as the rocks seem redder!
You can enjoy the park via the road that circles around these formations, or on the wheel chair accessible paths, and smaller trails that take you more intimately by the rock formations.
These rocks are a lot of fun to scamper around, and they do allow climbing by permit as well. It really is like nature's jungle gym as there are so many boulders climb on.
Garden of the Gods is a small park. So enjoy not needing a map, and wandering among these amazing rock formations. This park is less about going for many mile long hike as the areas surrounding the rock formations is grasslands, and suburbia.
Granted some of those trails in the grassy area do allow you to get back from the amazing rock formations for some breath taking views of them.
