We will meet at the Garden of the Gods entrance sign and take you on an iconic yet easy hike in the central park. First, we will take your photo with the entire park backdrop--a classic park picture! Then we will guide you on the easy and convenient trails through beautiful Garden of the Gods. You will get to enjoy the most stunning views and amazing red rock formations. You might see wildlife such as deer and hawks…and rock climbers. We will share the history and fascinating geology of the Garden along with fun facts about amazing local plants and the Native Americans that still consider this sacred land.

Hike For Life picked out the most incredible central trails for this introduction to Garden of the Gods. These relatively easy trails are perfect for any ability level and you can plan on hiking approximately 2-3 miles. If you prefer a longer hike (4-6 miles) check out our Garden of the Gods Immersion Hike.

During your hike we'll also provide you with tips on other destinations in town and useful information for your future hiking adventures.

Other things to note:
Dogs are welcome but must be leashed. We often have very mild days even in winter. Summer days can be very hot, but rain, hail or snow is possible at any time of year.

Our goal is to provide you with a memorable, safety-oriented, informative and fun experience that motivates you to explore more!
