Welcome to the forum from a fellow Coloradoan! I'm up here in Estes Park and our house literally looks into Rocky Mountain National Park. Also only 10-15 minutes away from Long's Peak, one of the 14'ers. As far as Garden of the Gods, I don't know the exact laws, but I know for the National parks you can't take-off or land within the park boundaries, but you can fly in the airspace over the park. I would assume it's the same for the GOTG, but you know what happens when you "assume". Happy and safe flying!

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Garden of the Gods is off limits, designated as wildlife habitat. Peterson AFB/KCOS on the east (class C), Ft Carson (Class D) of the south, and USAFA (class D/G on the north). A really wonderful place to help learn flying is Palmer Lake. Very drone friendly area. Catch the lake and the trains! GOG is declared as wildlife habitat and the City of Colorado Springs will not grant permission to fly in the GOG. Same for Bear Creek Park! And, Palmer Park. You certainly may TO/L outside the parks (with land owners' permission), but good luck on that. Flying over from outside the parks will not benefit anyone as you will quite easily lose visual observation very quickly. I would recommend you start out low and slow in one of the many other city parks. Near me I prefer Wildflower Park, I just walk from the house.

Brush up on DJI unlocking procedures if case you get closer to Springs Air Port, Class C. Really would recommend some of the smaller parks to help gain familiarity of the drone and controls, not to mention the DJI unlocking procedures.
