We didn’t have much time to spend here, so we chose the drive through option instead of hiking the trails. It was convenient for a family and you still were able to take good pictures and see the main structures (see below). It was free...More

We went to the park around 8:00 pm and My fiancé and I thought it was so beautiful. There are several trails you can walk. I definitely recommend this to be one of your firsts stops in Colorado Springs, CO.

We drove through here and stopped for pictures of the balancing rock. The temperature was perfect, and there weren’t many people. We could’ve spent the day here or at the Trading Post down the road.

Beautiful well maintained park. This is a must see on your trip. Plan to arrive early or thru the week as the park gets crowded.

DRIVE is the only way to go. You can go at your own pace and stop where you want. There are places to park for a short walk or just pull over. The best walk area with a baby (and stroller) would be off the north main... More
