Along with Garden of the Gods beautiful scenery with paved walking trails, there are also hiking trails around the park. They’re very easy hikes.

An absolutely beautiful day trip from North West Arvada. Take a stroll in Manitou Springs and a hike in Garden of the gods.

Garden of the Gods is a ‘must see’ for all who come to Colorado Springs. It’s free, you can drive through it or park your car and choose from many hiking trails. The scenery is beautiful and there are so many options for pictures. If you stop by the Visitor Center across the road, from the entrance to the park, they will give you a map which gives you great information.

You can spend all day hiking the park, but you can also drive to all of the landmarks and see the park from the comfort of your car in about a 30 minute drive. The park is best at sunset for photo opportunities.

History of the Garden of the Gods Early Inhabitants The human history of the Garden of the Gods commences many centuries before our present time. Stone hearths and fire rings found in the Garden dating over 3000 years ago indicate the presence of early inhabitants, according to Ute traditions, their people have always lived in this area, not having any stories of migration from elsewhere. The Utes were known to winter in the Garden of the Gods prior to removal to reservations in southwestern Colorado and northeastern Utah. How the Park was Named Modern history of the Garden begins in 1858 when gold was discovered along the Front Range and in South Park, northwest of Colorado Springs. Thousands of prospectors and settlers flocked to the area, including a party from Lawrence, Kansas, who camped along the stream known as Camp Creek, and carved their names on the sandstone boulder we call “Signature Rock.” In 1859, the Garden was named by two surveyors who were laying out the town of Colorado City, south of the Park. As they were riding their horses through the Garden, Malancthon Beach remarked the place would be a “capital place for a beer garden.” Rufus Cable replied, “Beer Garden! Why it is a place fit for the gods to assemble. We will call it “Garden of the Gods.” A City Park The city of Colorado Springs was founded in 1871 by General William Jackson Palmer, founder of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, who built his home in Queens Canyon, just north of the Park. In 1879, General Palmer talked a fellow railroad man, Charles Elliot Perkins, into buying 240 acres of the Central Garden for a summer home. Perkins later added another 240 acres. However, he never built on the land but always kept it open to the public. It became Mr. Perkins wish to give the land to the city of Colorado Springs for a park, but he died before making these wishes know in a will. However, his 6 children honored his wishes, and on Christmas Day of 1909 the 480 acres were conveyed to the city with the provision it would always remain free to the public. Later acquisitions by the city brought the total park size to 1,367 acres.

Hands down the Best FREE park in the US, the rock formations are nothing short of spectacular. Always a popular running spot, the best sights are reserved for those who make it out here the day after a Snowfall. If you are NOT from Colorado and decide to skip this you have missed the best treasure.

1.5 miles away, this park is located in Clorado Springs. A little further south, plan on it being a bit warmer on your visit.

    “The peak that inspired the song “America the Beautiful”, Pikes Peak is unique in that you can drive to the top! It is worth a trip for the amazing views, as well as the interesting visitor center at the summit. There are multiple ways to get to the summit, including driving, taking the Cog Railway, or hiking via the Barr Trail. Please note that driving or riding the Cog both cost money and reservations are recommended.”
