Lonely Planet review
Red Rock Canyon is one of the region's newest and best slices of open space. A former quarry, and part of a red-rock vein that runs through Colorado Springs to the Garden of the Gods, this 787-acre park was nearly developed into a golf course and townhouses.
Thanks to committed residents who fought the good fight, Red Rock Canyon is, and will remain, open to all, including hikers, runners, cyclists and equestrians. Trails from Red Rock connect to Bear Creek Regional Park and North Cheyenne Canyon Park. Rock climbers have access to over 80 bolted climbing routes, but they must register at the Garden of the Gods Visitors Center first or risk a $500 fine. Some trails are for hikers only. Dogs must be leashed except on designated off-leash trails.
