Explore Red Rock Canyon, just outside Colorado Springs. Easy, well-maintained trails wind through the red sandstone, offering views of town and the Garden of the Gods.
This is an easy hike to follow, open to hikers, bikers, and leashed dogs. You can also head to the park for rock climbing, with the proper permit.

Just like everywhere else in Colorado it is beautiful. This hike if fairly easy and is sort of dodgy if the trail is busy because it welcome dogs and bike riders. Other than that it was an easy little hike and very enjoyable. Glad I made time for it.
