This was an awesome stop on our road trip out West. We stayed in Denver for a few days and this was a perfect day of nature. The state park was gorgeous & the trails weren't too bad. Definitely worth an a few hours of your day. Make sure you bring some bottled water!

Roxborough State Park is a gem that is just south of Chatfield reservoir that everyone who lives in the Denver area should put on their "must see" list. The Park has a wonderful theatre which shows a short film documenting the history of the Park. You should view this before picking out which trail to hike on.

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.

Oct 2014.... I never knew this trail was there. Went with two friends, and it was so beautiful. The views from the top, you weave in and out of trees and open areas. we are active people so this was comfortable, one of our friends was not used to that altitude, so he needed more breaks. We made it to... More

Carpenter Peak hike taken with several families of various ages (7-50's) and stages of ability. The views and wild life from beginning to end are like no other. The reward for your hike is the most amazing view to the west of the continental divide as far as the eye can see and to the north east best view of... 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.
