  • Beautiful scene with nice trails easy for family hikes of all ages. $8 for a day pass, well worth of the hiking of one day. However, no pet is allowed. The park has plenty parking lots, very quiet, and not so crowed. Looks like the same red rock formation as that of the Garden of Gods, could be a good alternative if you do not have time to drive that far. Visitor Center is available with restrooms. Please keep on trail because of rattlesnakes. Highly recommended to friends coming to Denver.
  • So nice to have a beautiful trail system close to home. Pure hiking here; no dogs or bikes allowed. Scenic and quiet. It will set ya back 80 bucks to get an annual state parks pass, or $8 for the day. Truly money well spent!
