  • It pays respect to John Denvers love of nature! Beautiful place to relax and reflect. Everything there is beautiful. Take the time for a picnic in his Song Garden!!! Love it
  • Great little place for a man I never knew. It's a 30 minute walk, if you take your time, and a bunch of scenic views. There will be areas where you need to step over a small section of stream to another rock, so unfortunately a handicapped person can't see all of the sanctuary by themselves. Its beautiful location and quotes chiseled on the side of rocks makes this place amazing!
