More than a million Denver-area residents have one of natures jewels in their backyard: Roxborough State Park, a short drive southwest of Denver. Roxborough is a Colorado Natural Area and a National Natural Landmark for good reason. The 3,339-acre park is filled with dramatic red-rock formations, distinct plant communities, and a host of wildlife ranging from black bears to mule deer. Visitors can take in all of Roxboroughs geological wonders via a series of trails for every level of hiker. The Fountain Valley Overlook is only 100 yards from the Visitor Center and provides spectacular views of several beautiful rock formations, including the Fountain Formation, Lyons Formation, and the Dakota Hogback. Many visitors tote their cameras to capture one of the many beautiful views or animal sightings such as red fox from one of the parks overlooks.

Great views! Highly recommend doing the loop using the power line and elk valley trails.

Great hike and terrific views from the peak. Just a bit icy in parts this late in year, watch your step.
