Description

This fully paved and accessible path starts from the main parking area at the northern end of Garden of the Gods. The path heads south past trail information and restrooms. You'll have lovely views of Kissing Camels to the right/west and White Rock to the left/east. The trail then turns right/west through the Gateway and past Sentinel Rock. Follow the central loop in either direction to get various views of Kissing Camels, Sentinel Rock, Three Graces, and South Gateway Rock. The trail returns to the parking area from along the same pathway you took to get to from the parking area to the Gateway.
