“Nice park, good views of Champlain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

This is a lovely park, lots of good long trails, perfect for walking dogs. When it opens up the view of Lake Champlain is wonderful, and theres some nice swimming options too

“Nice for walks in the woods.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We have walked these trails numerous times this year,always a pleasure.But there is also a nice little beach there,but it is quite a chore to get there.The parking area is quite a ways from the beach,requiring down and up a good sized hill.This is not good if you have a couple of kids in tow with beach necessities.There is a gated entrance right next to the beach,which is only opened if someone is handicapped.I actually contacted the town of South Burlington,and they reiterated that one has to go to the attendant,who is quite a distance away,to have someone actually go down there to let someone in.The beach access is simply not family friendly,a real shame.

“Off the beaten path”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

A hidden gem good for hiking to the lake edge bluffs. Mostly locals use it. Get a map and find out how to get there. Smallish parking area.

“hidden favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

Red Rocks Park is kind of a well known secret. It's not really near anything except a residential neighborhood, but it's found on a side street off a major roadway. It's a nice, slightly out of the way place to get some outdoors time in. Red Rocks is more of a collection of trails than a traditional park. It is set on a cliff over Lake Champlain making for some excellent views. There are multiple winding trails with lots of look outs and secluded wooded areas. There is also a small beach and a picnic area with tables. This park is a great place to spend a couple hours in the woods without going out to the middle of nowhere. Even when the parking area looks crowded, the trails never seem overwhelmed with people.
