Hildebrand Ranch, Littleton

4.4
Hildebrand Ranch is located near Littleton, Colorado. In 1866 Frank and Elizabeth Hildebrand settled in Deer Creek and homesteaded on 160 acres. In the 1950s there was a plan that was authorized to control flooding in Denver but the funds never came. In 1971 the Army condemned 333.73 acres of the ranch and created Chatfield Reservoir. In March 1973 Denver leased 750 acres from Chatfield and 67 for the Denver Botanic Gardens which included the ranch's original buildings. In February 2001 Jefferson County Open Space purchased 1,450 acres of Hildebrand Ranch

  • I enjoy birding, identifying wild flowers, and the quiet of this peaceful area. If you enjoy mountain biking or walking, this is a low impact experience. Please respect the rules and stay on the paths...  more »
  • This is a great place to hike on an old ranch property in the foothills. There are lots of trails, and one even heads up to the foothills. There are some neat, old ranch buildings still standing. Best...  more »

  • This place can get busy. There is a small parking one so get there early if you want to use the space. There is a easy single track mountain bike path that's approximately a 3 mile loop. It is a very easy but still fun and because of its Western exposure you can ride year round and in almost all weather conditions
  • This park now connects to Deer Creek Canyon. The switch backs are #insane! Part of the trail is carved out of the rock and is particularly dangerous. It offers spectacular views. I encourage exploring this trail but exercising safety first. It is particularly fun in the winter when it is less crowded.
