Today was a great chance to get outdoors after the brief cold spell and snow we had earlier in the week. So the plan was to head south to Colorado Springs and Garden of the Gods and get a decent hike in, since its been almost 4 weeks since the last time I was on a trail.
It’s been 8 or 9 years since I’ve last been to Garden of the Gods, but I’ve never hiked any trails through the park itself. According to the Garden of the Gods website, there are around 15 miles of trails within the park. None of the trails are too strenuous, hardly any elevation gain, and the not one trail longer than 3 miles. It’s a good idea to combine a couple of trails to get a nice day in the park, log some mileage and experience some of natures awesome rock formations throughout.
We did a combination of the Siamese Twins trail, Palmer, Perkins Central Garden and Scotsman trails, ending back on the Siamese Twins trail. The Perkins Central Garden trail is the only trail with a concrete path.
It was a good day today on the trails and out in nature. Here are a few pictures from todays hike.
