This park doesn't look like much from the road, but we pulled in and made a quick loop thru the parking area. From the looks of the many Colorado license plates, it appeared to a local favorite for shorter hiking loops. I went back one afternoon to try one out, and it was very enjoyable. Not a huge park, but... More

Nice views, some simple level hikes, nice visitor center. Parking at a premium, but not impossible. Road good. Not Bruyce Canyon but not bad.

We walked around, but didn't really know where to go. We followed some others up a hill, looked around, and then got back in the car. It looks like this place is more for hiking than anything else. There really wasn't much to see. It was located off a very busy road without a traffic light, which made it very... More

Great amphitheater cut in the rocks on the side of the mountain. Was told the sound is amazing when concerts are going on. Beautiful facility with great views! A must see!

Great natural setting for hiking/dog walking. Was closed for a time due to water damage but has re-opened in most areas.

Red Rock Canyon Open Space is an excellent place to go hiking. There are several trails for hiking, also seems to be a good spot for biking. The trails range from relatively easy to more advanced. Some are more scenic than others, but all that I have gone on so far are interesting. Just reopened recently after the rains closed... More

When traveling to Colorado make sure there is time in the travel schedule to experience Red Rock Canyon. Don't drive your brand new Cadillac there, but a nice 4 X 4 will work just great. An amazing part of mother nature, a natural formation and what a view! Yes, there is a gift shop.

We've driven by the Red Rock Canyon dozens of times and made it a point to stop and walk the trails today. Although there is some weather damage to the trails from Spring rains there was nothing we couldn't pass. The trails are nice and wide and the scenery is beautiful. I don't think we saw any trash on our... More
