Colorado Springs’ scenic mountain landscape lends itself well to outdoor activities. Hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails criss-cross the region’s urban and open spaces, while stunning geological features like Garden of the Gods – a public park featuring large formations of red sandstone rocks – and Seven Falls – a set of cascading waterfalls – are tucked between residential areas of town. Sunny skies and crisp mountain air make Colorado Springs a perfect place for a golf outing, extreme sports, a great day of fishing, or a picnic in one of the many well-maintained parks.
