Garden of the Gods is a natural rock formation in Colorado Springs. The park is free to all visitors. You can take a driving tour through the park and just enjoy the view, or you can hike along the trails if you want to get really close to the rocks.
Have your cameras ready because there are a lot of animals on the trail: rabbits, deer, elks. You know when they’re around because you can smell them. It smells like a zoo. Because of the poop. Watch your step.
Stay on the Trail
Climbing the rocks is one of the most fun things to do here. The views are amazing. Even so, I am pretty sure this is not allowed. There are warning signs all around telling you not to hike off the trail as to not disturb the local wildlife and vegetation. And I’m pretty sure they don’t want any tourist falling to their death.
