Great hike close to Denver

Great hike not too far from Denver. Connect to the Red Rocks trail or only do the loop. Gets busy during the weekends. Dogs on leash are welcome.

During my first trip to the Denver area this is where we went for a trail run. Not crowded, quiet, well maintained. We will go here often!

In the area from out of state and pulled off and found this trail/hike. The trail had a lot of activity. The entire family had fun and a good trail.

You can get in about 9 miles of hiking, with some fairly rocky terrain and some decent elevation gain.I use it in the spring as I beging to train for 14er season. Mt. Falcon in Morrison and especially Bear Peak in Boulder are additional good training routes.

This is one of our favorite hikes close to Denver. There is a nice 4 1/2 mile loop over the Morrison Slide. Nice challenging climb to get your heart pumping. Great wildflowers in season. Nice little creek at the beginning and another part way. The first creek has a great little picnic area, with shallow wading water for young children.... More

Great hike to and from Red Rocks Amphitheater, about 7 miles round trip. Very scenic and relatively easy to do. Watch out for bikers, there are a couple parts with blind corners. However everyone we met a long the trail was very friendly. Once you get to Red Rocks, you can explore the amphitheater, there's a restaurant, gift shop and... More

A conveniently located park to travelers and locals alike. Right off I-70 at the Red Rocks exit. Great spot for a picnic along the creek, lots of hiking trails that connect to Red Rocks Park as well. Restrooms and free parking. The scenic Hogback Trail is east, right across the highway. A natural park; no ballfields, concession stands, etc. Lots... More

A nice variety of trails in the easy-moderate range with a mix of sun and shade at all times of the year. The trail system connects to the Red Rocks trails and is just across the road from the trail along the top of Dinosaur Ridge. You can easily hike for a couple of hours or a full day if... More

Nice hiking trails and is close to Red Rocks Amphitheater. It's nice to combine the two for a great workout.

In Colorado, along the front range; the issues between hikers and mtn. bikers are notorious. The bikers want to go ast and yield to no one going up hill. The hikers want the bikers gone. Mathew Winters has solved it somewhat, but in the end it took terrain away from both. Boo.
