  • We love it here. It's a beautiful park, great for driving and with amazing scenery. It's really not that far from Denver but it's been quiet the few times we've been. Probably not a great beginner hiking place, but numerous trails. We love this place so much we're actually planning on getting married here.
  • The park was very beautiful with a great scenery and the snow made it even more magnificent. We decided to drive through the park on our was back to the #Denver area but didn't realize there was an entry fee. We stopped at one area that had wonderful views of the snow covered mountains and saw the sign that said fee or permit required. That was kind of a bummer because we didn't see a shack to pay like in other parks. We are not from the area so we were a bit unfamiliar with the process. Still get views and I would recommend to anyone!
