Great hike, plenty of rest stops and shady portions. Most of it was great for trail running and the view at the top is definitely worth the hike

Carpenter Peak Trail is an easy, 6.2 mile hike that gives you views of Pike National Forest & Roxborough Park. If you're going to Roxborough State Park to view the red rocks, I don't recommended this trail, simply because the view at the peak isn't as spectacular as the view from Fountain Valley trail.

Good trail. I came to the park and did 13 miles of trails on a friday. Its a smaller SP but has some good views of the red rock formations. 7$ for a day pass or if you get the state park pass you can visit them all. The park notes on their signs that this trail is strenuous but its definitely moderate (its the most strenuous in this park.) some areas of shade but mostly sun. Plenty of parking and restrooms available as well as water bottle filler upper. Did this solo and felt safe as well!

Also did south rim, fountain view and lyons and this day. Got a good 6hr trek in!
