Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

A short, quarter mile loop highlighting the unusual rock formations and dramatic cliffs of the Garden of the Gods in the Shawnee National Forest, easily accessible by the general public. Bring your camera and your kids, and backpackers along the River to River Trail should plan on making a visit, but the area can be crowded due to its ease of access.
