Some accident of geography and microclimate created this natural wonder. What a beautiful place to spend some time hiking and experiencing nature. Have sunscreen and water for sunny summer days, and be aware that dogs are not allowed.

We made it to... More

Easy hike to the top of Carpenter Peak. You can limit your stay to the visitor center, it's that beautiful and don't hike if you are feeling less ambitious.

Have spent a good amount of time in Roxborough hiking with family and friends. In addition, I've volunteered here with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado maintaining the trails. There is good opportunity to see wildlife. I've never found the park crowded even though it is close to the city. Certainly a great place to pack a lunch and spend an afternoon... More

Located near to Denver; convenient. An oasis in the suburbs. Good hiking but watch out for snakes in the summer! Good interpretative museum if a bit small. Helpful volunteers.

We did the Fountain Valley hike. Great hike and not too hard - I am really out of shape - but the views were awesome.

Nestled between spectacular rock formations in the Dakota Hogback, in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, this is a delightful place to visit. Besides the scenery, which makes for great photos especially in the early morning and late afternoon, one can enjoy seeing many kinds of wildlife in their natural settings.
