There are several parking lots in the Garden of the Gods that can accommodate motor coaches. We have maps and can give you advice and suggestions on the best places to stop. Your guests can capture the perfect keepsake photos or stretch their legs on one of many hiking trails.

**Please note: 

The Balanced Rock entrance is rather narrow, but there is enough room for a motor coach.  If necessary, it is possible to go through the Balanced Rock entrance in reverse (going in the outdoor, so to speak) with proper traffic management of the one-way road.

Help us make you look good!  Call ahead and let us know how many folks you’re bringing to visit.  We’ll dust off our smiles, and even have lunch ready if you like!  719-685-9045 x5 or
