My family and I (kids age 10 to 16) have been here twice and just love it. We first hiked the Eldorado Canyon Trail which was a little longer than we thought it would be, it actually goes on outside the park, but was a blast. I recommend taking more water than you think you need. The second time we... More

This is approximately a thirty to forty-five minute drive from Denver. They have plenty of trails and wheel chair access trail. Parking is $8 and parking also sucks, but not their fault, nothing they can do when it is between a river and a mountain range. Fantastic views from the "look out" on rattle snake trail. Did not see any... More

Close to Boulder & Golden, Colorado and a throwback in time as you drive through Eldorado Springs and head back to the State Park. A modest fee gets you a wonderful experience of hiking, photos, views of the Continental Divide. There were rock climbers as well! Worth the time and great hiking!

Eldorado Canyon State Park is one of my favorite state parks in Colorado. This park is not far from Denver and just minutes from Boulder. This park has lots of excellent hiking trails with absolutely stunning views. Please note this park has limited parking and can be crowded on weekend, therefore come early if planning to visit on a weekend.... More

A fairly short drive from Denver or Boulder, this park offers excellent hiking. We visited on a weekday in late March, and trails were dry. The Eldorado Canyon trail begins with a steep series of switchbacks, then rewards the hiker with excellent views. The visitor center at the trailhead is especially pleasant, as are the picnic areas. Cautions: The access... More

Visited as the leaves were changing and had this nice spot pretty much all to ourselves (ain't retirement wonderful?). We hiked the the park on one side and returned on the other. Can be slightly challenging in a few spots, otherwise just a fun walk in a very pretty environment. If you're a flat lander, pace yourself to avoid oxygen... More

This is by far one of the best state parks I've visited. It has a lot of space and numerous trails with great views of the distant snow covered mountains and of the canyon. The gentleman at the visitor desk (not sure if staff or volunteer) was excellent in recommending trails based on ones interest and hiking capability. If up... More

Great place to hike, there are a number of different trails, from very east to very difficult. Anyone can find a nice hike here. Scenery is fantastic, it's an awesome place! Also plenty of climbers that are fun to watch.

We took the hike up to the hotel ruins and the contential divide. It was all uphill so not for people looking for an easy hike, but it is worth the exercise to get to the top. Such a gorgeous view and can see for miles once you are at the top.

We visited here in August 2014 with children & had a great experience! The scenery was beautiful and the hike was very easy for kids to keep up. If we get out to Denver again, we will be sure to visit!
