This park was affected by the floods last fall, so they were in the process of doing some road repair and the picnic area was temporarily closed. We watching people doing rock climbing here. Park a little further into the park, where the accessible trail-head begins. Walk the trail up the hill, but be forewarned that you probably don't want... More

This was a nice day trip from Denver, only around 30 miles. The road getting to the park entrance was a little bumpy, but totally worth it. We hiked the Streamside Trail and the Fowler Trail, the were both great! On the Fowler Trail there are benches and mounted scopes dotted along the trail to view the rock climbers along... More

You can hike as much on the trail as you like or take the bigger trails for a longer experience. Much of the first part of the trails will get you the best views of the canyon and rock climbers, but the other parts of the trail is more open or around the side of the canyon and into more... More

If you don't have time to explore Rocky Mountain National Park, try Eldorado Canyon State Park. To the locals this is the foothills, but it is rugged and beautiful. The road into the park is not well marked and the parking is limited, but it is worth it once you get there. A stream runs through the canyon. Along the... More

This park is absolutely beautiful, but can be dangerous! I am an experienced hiker, but nothing I had read prepared me for the Eldorado Canyon Trl/Walker Ranch Loop. All together, it is a 14 mile trail. What I was not aware of is that about 70% of the trail is completely exposed, which offers great views, but absolutely no protection... More

Like all state parks in Colorado, you have to pay to get in. It was $7.00 a car. A great place to hike and watch the rock climbers and enjoy the scenery.

We just went up for a day hike and picnic and had a great time even though it was very crowded. I also love stopping at the bottom of the canyon and getting the wonderful Eldorado Springs water. You have to pay to get in but it was worth the money:)
