Had a nice time walking the Red Rocks and Morrison Slide trails. There were some hills to go up, but not too challenging even for this flatlander from Florida. Found some GeoCaches along the way. Some Caches seemed sketchy since they were off the trail...More

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.

This is a great place to get outdoors, even with little ones. There's some beautiful scenery along the way and you'll get a decent workout. Great views when you get up higher.

This park is a beautiful setting, with easy access for both hikers and bikers (with hiking and biking trails separate). I started along the hiking trail, but quickly discovered in my business clothes and oxfords that I was quite unequipped to go much further! However,...More
