Red Rock Canyon Open Space is located south of US-24 between Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. Lots of trails along the canyons and ridges of red rock provide great views of Garden of the Gods to the north and city in general. The area slopes up away from the highway so typically you will hike up first and then come down the hill. Link to the Intemann Trail and Section 16 connects Red Rock to many other hiking trails in the area. There are two off-leash dog loops and also a free riding bicycle area. This is a beautiful area and the sheer number of different trail combinations will ensure you will not get bored of coming back here.
Directions: Take US-24 west then turn left on Ridge Rd. There are two large parking lots available.
