Garden of the Gods: Western Loop Map

The Garden of the Gods is Colorado Springs' most famous park, containing stunning geological formations of uplifted red rock fins. These staggeringly-beautiful rocks attract over two million visitors per year to the park, making it the most popular in all of Colorado Springs.


The loop route mapped here sticks to the westernmost trails in the park, earning it the name "Western Loop." Since these singletrack trails climb moderately into the foothills, you'll enjoy a unique perspective of the red rocks by looking down on them instead of up at them. You'll also get an up-close look at the Siamese Twins rock formation and the Scottsman Formation, among others.
