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.

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.

I've been running and hiking in this park since the early 1990's. With all the many loops and options you can do as much or as little as you like. The big loop includes climbing the plateau on the west side of the road and...More
