What you'll do
Garden of the Gods is one of the top city parks in the nation with 5 million visitors last year! Avoid the swarm of visitors, see more wildlife, and avoid heat of the day on this beautiful early morning hike through the Garden. We will begin the hike by admiring the stunning red rocks and learning about the local history, wildlife, and vegetation in the central gardens. We will then hike to less traversed trails that offer spectacular views of Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rockies. We will end with a birds eye view of the park before winding our way back down to our starting point. The total distance of the hike will be 4 miles on moderate terrain trails with a 250 foot increase in elevation. Throughout the tour we will witness beautiful rock formations and will be on the look out for Rocky Mountain wildlife. Be prepared to take many photos!

Where you'll be
Our hike will begin by admiring the beautiful red rock formations (including kissing camels), identifying unique vegetation and wildlife, and learning about the park's rich history. We will then travel off the beaten path to my favorite rock formation, Siamese Twins, that has a beautiful backdrop of Pikes Peak. Next, we will climb to experience a birds eye view of the park before finally winding our way back to the main parking lot.
