Easily accessible with lots of parking. Very pretty and convenient. Usually pretty busy, heavily trafficked, with many options for trails. Great whether you want to take a short or long walk. Good for kids and dogs as well. Best part, it's free.

Great place to hike. Quite a few people, but didn't feel too crowded because of the number of trails. Probably not the place to go for solitude, but much less crowded than Garden of the Gods. If you go there in the winter, bring YakTrax of you have them.
Red Rock Canyon is a great place for the whole family. Lots of trails with different options on how far you want to walk. Mountain Bike and pets are welcome as well. We usually take the dogs on a walk around the reservoir and up through the quarry. Absolutely go here for some good but easy hiking!!
We hiked three trails over three days and loved it. Length and difficulty are easy to judge from signs at the parking lot. Accessible paths are available. Beautiful natural settings, rocks, plants and critters. Very kid and family friendly. Some trails are open to mountain bikes. A few minutes from Old Colorado City. Free.
A,must see for the day hiker, biker or family with dog in tow. Stunning places for photography, picnics and exercise. Don't miss it at sunset...
