Hikes in Colorado Springs will take you to some stunning waterfalls and through the red rocks of Garden of the Gods with the snow-capped backdrop of Pikes Peak filling against a blue sky. Because Colorado Springs is situated right at the base of the foothills, there are many trailheads right within the city limits. You can be out of the car and on the trail in a matter of just a few minutes. If you live in the Denver area, Colorado Springs is located just 1 hour south of the city center.
Thanks goes out to sctkirk for the beautiful image of Garden of the Gods.
