“Good hiking close by”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

A nice variety of trails in the easy-moderate range with a mix of sun and shade at all times of the year. The trail system connects to the Red Rocks trails and is just across the road from the trail along the top of Dinosaur Ridge. You can easily hike for a couple of hours or a full day if you have the desire and time. There is plenty of parking with restroom facilities at the trailhead.

“Nice Hiking”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nice hiking trails and is close to Red Rocks Amphitheater. It's nice to combine the two for a great workout.

“Good Hiking and not too many crazy mountain bikers.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

In Colorado, along the front range; the issues between hikers and mtn. bikers are notorious. The bikers want to go ast and yield to no one going up hill. The hikers want the bikers gone.
Mathew Winters has solved it somewhat, but in the end it took terrain away from both. Boo.

Close-in park that that features some of the same rock formations that make up Red Rocks park. A variety of nice trails for hikers and bikers. Also home to the world famous Dinosaur Ridge site which is worth a visit too.
