Matthews/Winters is a great place for a run, hike, or mountain biking. It's easy access & close proximity to Denver make it a good choice if you have time constraints or don't want to drive too far. We prefer parking at the north entrance and hiking south on the Red Rocks trail. Then take the Morrison Slide Trail loop. This... More

This park is a beautiful setting, with easy access for both hikers and bikers (with hiking and biking trails separate). I started along the hiking trail, but quickly discovered in my business clothes and oxfords that I was quite unequipped to go much further! However, it was very appealing to go here, and many folks were using the trail for... More

We took the Red Rocks Trail (from the Village Walk Trail). We didn't do a great job of planning (plenty of water, hats, and sunscreen, but didn't check the distance before we headed out). The trail runs into Red Rocks Loop Road after about 3.5 miles (but the trail continues). In the meantime, you'll twist and turn through plenty of... More

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
