We used to walk here all the time with our kids. It is a great park but it does not allow dogs. I believe this is because of the wildlife (and you do see deer regularly) so there is a good reason but beware before...More

Saw snakes on or near the trail twice on a hot day. That was enough for us. Beautiful scenery though and well marked trails with facilities at the bottom. Enjoy!

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.

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
