Nice trail system, especially the upper trails. But too many dogs off leash on the trails. The city apparently cannot control all the people ignoring leash laws. Also, cars have been broken into. I stopped coming here for these reasons.

This is a wonderful tour of the incredible red rocks, which are huge and all different sizes. Some are very unique and it is amazing to stop and walk to get closer to them.

We try to take the kids out hiking at least (minimum) of once a month. Both our boys (9 & 10) love the Red Rocks open space. There is plenty of trail and terrain for them to feel like they're exploring.

RRCOS has a good trail system that is very well marked with maps along most major routes. You can also make your way up to Section 16 and the Intemann trail if you want to add on.

We love hiking here because there are great views and a good variety of trails to choose from, whether you’re hiking or mountain biking. We also love that it’s less than 5 min from our house... very easy to get to from Old Colorado City...More

You can have dogs at Red Rocks. It even has a place where they can run off the leash!
