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

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.

Close-in park that that features some of the same rock formations that make up Red Rocks park. A variety of nice trails for hikers and bikers. Also home to the world famous Dinosaur Ridge site which is worth a visit too.
