What you'll do

We’ll meet at the Garden of the Gods entrance sign and take you on an immersive hike throughout the Garden of the Gods. First, we'll get your photo with the entire park backdrop--a classic park picture! Then we'll guide you on the easy and convenient trails through the central Garden. We'll share the history and fascinating geology of the Garden along with fun facts about amazing local plants and about the Native Americans that still consider this sacred land.
Next we'll take you on less-traveled side trails to some of the hidden park features not typically seen by visitors. You will enjoy the most stunning views and amazing red rock formations.

Hike For Life will take you on the most incredible central trails and side trails for a longer immersion hike in Garden of the Gods. This moderate experience is an ideal longer hike (5 miles) and have more time to truly enjoy the park.

During the hike we'll also provide you tips on destinations in town and useful information for your future hiking adventures.

Our goal is to provide you with a memorable, safety-oriented, informative and fun experience that motivates you to explore more!
