Worth the price for a hike that's a good workout !

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... read 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

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!
