  • This was a nice trail near Red Rocks. You follow the creek and enjoy some nice scenery. Very busy. Easy for kids and dogs.

  • I've lived in the Denver area for about 5 years now and hike quite a bit but never visited this trailhead. I went a few weeks ago in the winter on a nice day and it was muddy and slushy but I knew I'd found my new fave spot. I've been back twice since and enjoy it so much! What I like the most is that it has all the specs I look for in an ideal hike: shade opportunities for those extra sunny, hot days, water source that brings me peace and can cool off by (Beautiful Bear Creek runs throughout the park), ample parking, restrooms, varied terrain and it's not too far. BTW, there's a cool unexpected attraction not too far down Bear Creek Trail: a castle! You can't get near it because of a small, gated bridge but it was a dreamy surprise when I went the first time. You can find a trail good for just about anyone at Lair O the Bear Park. Go solo or bring the whole family. They have picnic tables and cozy spots by the creek where you can set up for a few hours and enjoy the day in nature. Can't wait to go back again!
  • As long as you're aware that this a very easy hike, you'll enjoy it. Perfect for families with younger kids. A lot of it stays by the creek, and even has a couple water crossings for the kiddos to play in on warm days. Oh, and the trash can near the trailhead burps when used... the cherry on top for your little one. 😝🍒
