Description

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. While this loop route doesn't have an easy-to-remember name, it's renowned as one of the highest-value hiking (or trail running) loops in Garden of the Gods.

The route runs for a bit over 4 miles and connects the Palmer, Buckskin-Charlie, Niobrara, and Bretag trails (among others).

On this route, you'll circumnavigate the massive rock formations, enjoying ever-changing views of the red rocks from every single angle.
