No Dogs and No Bikes allowed. There is a $7 entrance fee to access the park. Most wheelchairs can ride the Fountain Valley Trail with little or no difficulty during good weather conditions. Trail is not paved. Comments: The Fountain Valley Trail is a 2.3 mile loop that winds through the Fountain and Lyons rock formations with a moderate change in elevation. This self-guided hike takes you through some of the most magnificent land in the park. The trail winds through several different habitats for plants and animals, including mule deer, fox and a variety of birds. You may see a golden eagle soaring over the hogback hunting small mammals, snakes or birds. At the top of the loop are buildings built by Henry S. Persse at the turn of the century. Persse used Roxborough as a summer home and hoped to develop the land into a resort. Hiking time is approximately one and one-half to two hours.

Great views of the rock formations, but there's no shade. This trail is a bit on the boring side.

$7 Entrance fee to enter park. We often take out of state family who don't hike often on this trail because it is easy, but still offers some neat rock formations. They loved it! Saw some wildlife! The family was happy.

This is an easy walk, and it was not crowded. We arrived late in the day and watched the sun set from Lyons Overlook. Saw many deer wandering around, as well as a large rabbit at the Persee house, and wildflowers everywhere. Word to the wise: you must be out of the park by 9 in the summer, which means a rushed exit if you want to go at sunset.
