great hike

This is a regular hike. I've taken my kids on this hike since they were very little. It is not stroller friendly.... but close...
We normally stop at the tower for lunch

Short hike near Denver
Jan 2021
It was the last chapter of my winter visit in Colorado. We 've decided to go for an easy a short hike with nice views. We've picked the Mount Falcon Park near Denver. There are few different trails, short ones and longer ones. Even my daughter's dog was with us(on leash). We were hiking for about two hors. Trail was easy, but in some places we had to watch for icy ground. North spots under trees had some snow and steep areas were icy. The views were great. It was near the sunset and the sky was clear. On east side there was a good spot with nice view of downtown of Denver. On the trail we saw some elks, woodpeckers and squirrels. We've liked very much the ruins of the house and Eagle's Eye Shelter. These two spots are great for taking pictures.
I recommend this place for everybody even during the winter.

We really enjoyed this trail when we were in the Denver area. It is relatively easy and offers something for everyone.

Fabulous Views and Easy Hiking
Sep 2020
Staying in Evergreen so this Park not as convenient as Elk Meadow, Lair o' the Bear and Alderfer/Three Sisters. However, it has some real highlights. We thought the views of Jefferson County were fabulous especially from the Eagle Eye Shelter (on the site of a former summer home). Lots of people and dogs and parking can be challenging. Still it was definitely worth the drive!

Great Trail, Too Many People
Jun 2020
Fantastic trail, great views, but way too crowded.

The trail is wide, well-marked, and well-maintained, and the grade is very gentle. While hikers gain 1200 feet in elevation, this hike is really easy. The views of Denver and Red Rocks are phenomenal throughout much of this hike. You can also see Dinosaur Ridge from the hike! Of course, the castle at the top was very fascinating. There is a placard located at the castle containing information about the castle's builder/owner and the history of the area.

The downside - too many people, including bikers. We arrived at the trailhead on a Monday morning at 0730 and the parking lot was almost full. I wanted to go on a hike...not participate in an obstacle course. I was overall impressed by everyone's trail etiquette (on this trail, hikers have the right-of-way over everyone else) and I liked that this route is dog-friendly (we brought our three!). There are just too many people along the Front Range these days; this will be our last hike near Denver. I never had the feeling I was in nature.

"Incredible View of Denver and Red Rocks"
Jun 2019
My wife and I were in the Morrison and Boulder area for two back to back shows at Red Rocks and wanted to get some hiking done.I have heard of this trail but never had experienced up till now. We are so glad that we did. The views of Denver and Red Rocks amphitheater are awesome to say the least. The trail is rocky so be prepared with proper foot wear. Bring plenty of water as there is very little shade until you reach Mount Falcon.Parking can be a bit tricky, try to arrive a bit early. Pack a lunch and enjoy yourself at one of the many picnic tables. This is not a difficult hike at all. I is VERY worth it for the views. I only wish I had discovered earlier in my travels to the Morrison and Denver area.

Nice hike close to Denver
May 2019 • Family
Just a quick 30 min drive from central Denver gets you on these trails just south of
Red rocks amphitheater. There are trails that are designated as hiker only and also shared trails with mountain bikers so you can choose whatever works for you.
The trails are well maintained and once you get higher up and on the back side of the mountain there is some shade. Great place to hike with a family/young kids!

Short drive up to the mountains for some good scenic hiking. Trails are fairly easy and the Castle Trail is good for history buffs and families. Great views overlooking Denver! There are tables for those who want to picnic as well.

Excellent views and several trails with varying distances. The castle trail is a must try, history buffs (and everyone else) will appreciate the ruins! Mt Falcon is one of my top spots to catch a sunset within 30 min from Denver.
