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!

Not being an outdoors person, it took some encouragement from my family to get me up the mountain side to the summit. When I got there, it was as they had promised, absolutely STUNNING!!! This was definitely worth the climb. The Park has done an excellent job of maintaining the trails and the park so that for those of us... More

We spent such a fantastic morning here as the sights from the trails were fantastic. Moreover, the trail was really accessible and well laid out, suitable for kids (under close supervision!) and, despite some pretty rough terrain, wheelchair users. The canyon is spectacular and it's good fun spotting the specks that are crazy people climbing the sheer canyon sides. It... More

I wanted to see some beautiful scenery up close and personal so my daughter and I stopped at this State Park. WOW!!! I could not believe how amazingly beautiful this is. We took the trails which were not bad for someone my age and health (48). I just absolutely loved it. I'm not a mountain climber but my daughter says... More

Magnificent rocks that make this a great paradise for rock climbers where you can enjoy watching them. We stopped by the... More

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
