This is NOT Garden of the Gods but it's nice, pretty scenery with a lake, and fairly easy trail, though not paved. It's also free.

The park itself is not that big, but when the lighting is right.... absolutely wow!! What an amazing place to walk your dog, have a run or sit for a picnic!

Good to hike through to see the different formations and views found throughout your trek. It is roughed and but well worth the effort.

Good parking available, excellent maps during the hikes on trails. Lots of beginner to moderate hikes available as well as some rock climbing. Not overly technical. I appreciate that dogs must be leashed except on the "off leash area trails"

This is a beautiful nature trail that offers many short hikes or you can make it into a longer hike. The rock formations are unique and beautiful.

Have a small dog and a small boy and they both enjoyed the park. The more narrow trails were a bit more natural and less traffic. The east side of the park by the quarry is the best.

Hi Jothish G, I'd say 5 to 6 hours tops with stopping in between, visiting the visitor Centre and stopping for some lunch. Hope this helps you. Regards.
