Garden of the Gods Walkabout presented by Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center at Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center, Colorado Springs CO

Experience Garden of the Gods as the sun rises and uninterrupted by the crowds.

Avoid the swarm of visitors, see more wildlife, and avoid the heat of the day on this beautiful early morning hike through the Garden of the Gods provided by the tour guide corporation Environmental Experiences LLC.

We will begin the hike by admiring the sunrise over 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 bird’s-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 lookout for Rocky Mountain wildlife. Be prepared to take many photos!

Hike duration is approximately 3.5 hours.

Dogs are welcome
