Ascent Trip Report

The Garden of the Gods Wilderness hp is listed in the Peakbagger data base (see my trip report for it) but it's a much less impressive hike than the main Observation Trail which wanders through the striking rock formations a bit like areas in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico. Admittedly this is a tiny area compared to its western counterparts, but this is the Midwest! I wandered the trail, climbed up and down rocks, and explored some spur trails in a well spent hour. Worth going out of your way for.
