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!
