Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Garden of the Gods with additional information or photos.

If you enjoy the fall colors, the Garden of the Gods will provide you with some astonishing views  

This area has been in existence for millions of years and features a rock formation shaped like a camel and the amazing Devil’s Smokestack. The Observation Trail contains more sandstone rock formations and views of the entire Garden of the Gods park. This is a natural setting and can be hazardous if not careful while walking along the path. 

Know Before You Go

There are latrines on site and a restaurant in Equality, IL called The Red Onion not far from the park. No disposable containers are allowed on the walking path.
