Red Rocks is a terrific place to walk. First, challenge yourself by walking up and down the steps inside the amphitheater -- try it three or four times! Now, if you're suicidal, or younger than 35, try running up and down those steps -- me, I'd rather take a breather and watch others do it. You can easily spend a... More

Red Rocks is probably one of the most incredible and beautiful settings for an evening concert. Any performer who is worth their salt has performed here and given it rave reviews in terms of, not only the beauty of the place but also the natural acoustics provided by the massive red rocks on either side of the stage. This outdoor... More

Red Rocks is easily accessible via 70/470. There are multiple entrances so be sure to check in advance so you get to the right spot. I recently went with a friend- we took the kids out for a great little hike and lunch at the amphitheater. When it's good weather out this is an ideal excursion. I park at the... More

Drop everything and drive to red rocks. If you find yourself near Denver this is worth the 25 min drive. Most amazing views and pictures you may ever see in your lifetime. Need a place to workout? You'll also find a lot of people exercising here.

If you can get up the couple hundred of steep steps (I'm sure there's an elevator also-but take the challenge) the view and red rocks are beautiful to take in! I can't imagine hearing live music in this venue-it must be magical(but crowded-seats 9500). If you walk up and down the steps and hike the trading post trail you will... More

Went to Red Rocks just to check it out and see the museum. It is such a beautiful location, perfect for a concert. Want to go back to see a concert as a bucket list item. Lots of people using the area for fitness which was great to see. The museum had a lot of interesting facts about the acts... More

Having been in the Denver area quite often over the years, I finally found myself with a cancelled meeting and a few moments to take in a sight or two. This park is well worth the drive and visit. The museum and visitors center has been well developed by the local authorities and for those from the 50/60/70s it will... More

Went for a 3 mile hike here 3rd week of March. Wonderful weather, trails were not too crowded, and the scenery was beautiful. There was some work being done on the road, so Entrance #2 was closed, and parking was beginning to fill up the sides of the road, but overall a great experience.

Went to Red Rocks just to see what it looked like - not for a concert. Stunningly beautiful setting. I would absolutely love to see a concert here. Red Rocks is worth the trip just to see the setting. In terms of a concert, traffic must be a mess. Narrow winding roads into the park and our friends did say... More

Today I visited Red Rock Park - it is a visually stunning park created by ancient red rocks. The park was busy- filled with tourists and people out for walks with pets and kids. The views are unparalleled- It is a place well worth visiting. This is an amazing park and well worth the visit- bring your running shoes if... More
