Garden of the Gods is celebrating Earth Day weekend with a Motorless Morning this Saturday.
The park will be closed to motor vehicles during the event, which runs from 5 a.m. to noon Saturday. Visitors are encouraged to park at the Garden of the Gods visitor center, Garden of the Gods Trading Post, or Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, and walk into the park. Visitors with disabilities can park at the visitor center and take a shuttle into the park.
Saturday’s event will be the third Motorless Morning in Garden of the Gods. The previous Motorless Mornings were held in April and October of 2018. The idea was born from a transportation study designed to enhance the visitor experience while protecting the park’s natural elements.
Both the visitors center and Rock Ledge Ranch will be hosting Earth Day events during Motorless Morning.
