This municipal park contains 480 acres of astounding, red sandstone fins and spires. The new visitor center affords great views of the park and Pikes Peak, and has a multimedia presentation and hands-on geology exhibits. Fabulous, lifelike murals depict the region’s ancient landscapes through the ages. During the summer, bus tours are available, as well as various walks and talks. Group tours, junior ranger and guided outdoor education programs, and self-guided “adventure hunts” are offered, as well.
