“Beautiful and unique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Eldorado is a must see for those visiting the Boulder area. The landscape is gorgeous and unique and being able to watch the rock climbers is something special. Just know that parking is a bear!

“First rock climbing trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Very beautiful place to visit even if your view is from just hiking. We hiked pretty far up and did some rock climbing. It was a blast and the view are amazing. You can even watch the train go by on the other side of the mountain. Its a must see to believe type of place.

“Eldorado Canyon State Park Pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Old-time pool in a beautiful setting. Simple - no frills. Good place to take the kids. Take a hike before hitting the pool.

“kids loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Were in Boulder with a family of five (9 year old girl, 12 year old boy, 21 year old girl, and parents) in late August and it was hot. Decided not to walk in the open sun on the Mesa trails and instead head for some tree cover in Eldorado Canyon (inner canyon). We pulled over in the first parking lot past the parking for the pool on the park road. The kids loved scrambling on the rocks along the river, dipping in and out of the pools, and watching the rock climbers. We then headed back to the pool at the end of the day. Expensive but worth it. The classic rock tunes over the speakers added to the fun.

Liked Eldorado Canyon so much we came back the next day and drove all the way to the end of the park road to the Ranger station. Hiked the Rattle Snake Gulch trail which was challenging for the 9 year old but good views. On the way out pulled over on the park road half way down and dipped into the many pools. Fun!

Watching the rock climbers can be exciting, and there are several nice hikes , not the easiest trails but fun.
