The red rocks of Garden of the Gods are one of Colorado's most photographed wonders – a collection of towering sandstone rock formations that trace their history to cataclysmic geological events a few million years ago. An awe-inspiring public park that has earned its place among the country's National Natural Landmarks, this breathtaking spot is a must-see just a short drive from our Manitou luxury hotel. It's popular for rock climbing, road and mountain biking, and hiking. If nothing else, take a stroll along the Perkins Central Garden Trail, which meanders through the heart of the park. Another must in our book? The 20-minute film "How Did Those Rocks Get There?" shown in the Visitor and Nature Center. Trust us, if you're traveling with a pint-sized future archeologist, you'll thank us later.
