Our son and his wife took us here for a short hike because of its easy terrain good for us “mature” adults. Good restroom facilities at the trail head and plenty of parking most days. Close to Red Rocks and Dinosaur Ridge as well.

Had a nice time walking the Red Rocks and Morrison Slide trails. There were some hills to go up, but not too challenging even for this flatlander from Florida. Found some GeoCaches along the way. Some Caches seemed sketchy since they were off the trail...More

Great place for a moderate hike. The usual loop from the parking lot around the hill that meets up with the Red Rocks trail on the west is about 5 miles round trip. It's totally doable for kids and dogs love it too. The stream...More

Enjoyed a full moon hike here in June. There is plenty of parking and bathroom facilities. Hiking trail was a good one for full moon hike. Not too steep and great view of the area and of course the moon.

One of the closest natural trail near Denver, right out off I70 exit. Nothing spactacular but it great for a pleasant weekend walk. Ends in the spectacular Red Rocks amphitheater.

This is a great place to get outdoors, even with little ones. There's some beautiful scenery along the way and you'll get a decent workout. Great views when you get up higher.
