Beautiful, quiet national park. South rim should be done morning or early afternoon due to sun. This park wasn't nearly as crowded as other national parks, which was great. The canyon is absolutely beautiful.

Views are awesome, but if you are going take the time to paint the rocks why not paint them multiple colors to be more interesting? I want to see some blue rocks. Also moving the amphitheater closer to Denver would be ideal.

Spectacular rock formations within easy reach of Colorado Springs. A beautiful place to hike, picnic, or take in the morning views which are spectacular when the morning sun is out. Garden of the Gods in a smaller package and well worth the visit.

Hearing about the concerts that are played there it was beautiful to see and envision all of the artists that have been there. Beautiful rock formations.

Driving through, even with fog, this place is gorgeous! It's at the base of Pikes Peak, so it's easy to see.

Red Rock Canyon is not a state park. It's a nice place but if you want to see some great red rock formations, go to Garden of the Gods. It's outstanding. It's also not a state park. It's very close to Red Rock Canyon.
