Hiking Garden Of The Gods in Colorado USA – Between England and Iowa

The Garden of the Gods, a registered National Natural Landmark, is located in Colorado Springs CO and is completely free to visit.  Set at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the main draw of the park is to marvel at the red sandstone rock formations scattered throughout.  There are 17 different formations altogether and many different hiking trails totalling 21 miles.  The Visitor Centre is a good place to start, you can pick up a free map which is helpful as there isn’t a huge amount of signage out on the trails.

The Visitor Centre also has one of my favourite views in the park.  You can see North Gateway Rock, South Gateway Rock and Gray Rock in front of the Rocky Mountains.  I like the contrast of colours, from the orange/brown in the front to the green of the lower mountains and then the white of the snow capped Pikes Peak.
