The trails were easy and safe to hike. Gorgeous through the canyon with the sound of the river. Watching the rock climbers was amazing. Must see. The Eldorado Pool was close due to thunder but looked like a cool place to check out next time around around.

The small town on the way into the park made me hesitant about visiting, however, Eldorado Canyon is BEAUTIFUL!!! I took a short hike through the park and enjoyed every second of it. The rock formations, as well as the trees and stream are stunning. Well worth your time!

Decided to stop here on our way to Vail from Boulder. What an incredible work of geology. We hiked to Rattlesnake Gulch and the Continental Divide and saw the Crag Hotel Ruins. The trail was busy but not a deterrent for us. Parts of the trail were closed due to Raptors nesting, and are clearly marked on the maps. When... More

Drove up here to hike the Canyon trail with the dogs, first visit and worth it if you want a good workout. The trail goes about 3.5 miles to the junction of the Walker ranch trail and the bulk of the elevation gain (1,000 ft) is at the beginning. The trail is well shaded and in decent shape. It was...

I'm not usually a hill walking person but I walked miles in this park it was brilliant the views were breath taking many different types of terrain with many clear safe routes to use. I couldn't wait to see what was around the next corner. There was even facilities for disabled wheelchair access to some areas so all could enjoy.... More

It has something for everyone with lots of history, Constanting the park ranger was fanominal, had short walks and longer ones based on your ability, very close to the Denver area, just be aware you have to go throw a quarky area, road is a bit tight and rough at times, but a must see if you like adventure.

Come to see the climbers scaling the spectacular walls in front of you, bring binoculars if you have them, If you want to hike a bit, try Rattlesnake trail which climbs high above , and pass the ruins of the old hotel,,, Well worth the trip and cost of admission,,, but only on a sunny day,,,

Eldorado Canyon is wonderful. The views are breathtaking!! It is also so much fun to eat h rock climbers climb. Get there early if going on the weekend. My first attempt was at 11am and they were full. I went back the next day at 9am and had no issues. Be sure to walk Fowlers Trail at a minimum. Great... More
