“One of the longer routes in the park, you'll be able to take in some spectacular geology here!”— Mikhaila Redovian
Family Friendly This loop isn't overly long and with many points to shorten your trip, it's perfect for visitors of all ages and abilities.
The views available from this trail are captivating! As you work your way south from the trailhead off of Juniper Way Loop, you'll be able to see the incredible Dakota Hogback to the west. Continuing on, exceptional views to the east will compete for your attention. Take your time, and make sure to take in the views in each direction! This trail is a lollipop in shape, which provides the opportunity to return along a similar route, both seeing the same features from a new angle and being able to enjoy something new on the return journey.
Take your time to admire some of Garden of the Gods' incredible rock features before returning to the trailhead!
