Garden of the gods

Etched in stone…a cross, feng shui symbol, peace sign…What do you see?

Balancing history

Garden of the Gods, a National Natural Landmark, is a true geological wonder that spans 1,367 acres. The Park is a unique biological melting pot where the grasslands of the Great Plains meet the pinon-juniper woodlands characteristic of the American Southwest, and merge with the mountain forest of the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak. The 300 million years of geological history of the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs reveal one of the most extensive pictures of earth history found anywhere in the United States.
