The ghosts of Hollywood’s by-gone cowboys play here all day long, I think. You can practically hear shwa-pings hitting the boulders as you shimmy between them and duck into caves. Well worn pathways wind up and around countless boulder formations – a hide and seek paradise (as long as you stay rattlesnake-alert). A few steps from the trailhead, the view across the valley comes into view – and remains on stand-by from many vista points.
Nestled in a dense residential neighborhood, Garden of the Gods offers you a short, scenic out-and-back uphill stroll flanking condos – or you can wander headlong into the Wild West of yesteryear and lose yourself in an all-out adventure exploring endless nooks and crannies.
