Roxborough has fascinating rock formations, a number of nice trails, and a small, but well-done interpretive center.

What a great place to take in the beauty of Colorado; we saw dozens of deer, hundreds of birds, and spent less than about 15 minutes driving through the Park. Definitely worth the short drive from Denver.

When Roxborough State Park was created to be a walk-in only state park I was skeptical about how that would be managed. They have done an outstanding job. The paths and smaller trails wind through the same red rock formations as more famous parks, BUT...More

Beautiful trail with 360 degrees view of the red rocks. Part of the trail is through woods and part in open plains. Jus amazingly beautiful. There are 3 trails options: easy, moderate and advanced. Highly recommended.

There is not a tram ride around the park. For older visitors, you might try the Fountain Valley Trail - that is considered one of the easiest, but please keep in mind this is a real hiking trail - not a paved walk. For... More

Hi. If you have a State park pass you can get in for free, if not it is a daily fee of $8.00 . Be prepared to have cash on hand in case no one is at front booth then you have to place in a slot. It's worth the beauty. Hope... More
