Beautiful county park that functions as a backdoor trail system into Red Rocks. All the views and then some with 98% less tourists. Highly recommended for day hikers or trail runners. About 3 miles will get you to the overlook that looks over Red Rocks Amphitheatre, trails are well marked and maintained. Definitely worth your time!
A co-worker and I did this trail on 9/7/2019. We started around 6am and had the trail to ourselves for quite awhile. Not a difficult trail, but very pleasant and good for all ages/experience levels. We didn’t run across any snakes while we were on the trail. Once the sun comes up, you are pretty exposed, so make sure to bring a hat/sunscreen. The trail got pretty busy after awhile...lots of folks walking their dogs and bikers. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly.
