Extremely easy hike, very doable for all ages. I only gave this a 4 star rating because I like my hikes to be a bit more challenging. Beautiful views of the red rocks!

Nice little hike up to an overlook that definitely delivers on the views. Watch out for snakes on this one though.

Easy hike to the overlook. Combine it with the longer attached trail around the overlook makes for a nice easy to moderate hike. Not a ton of shade on the longer path but enough. Pretty red rocks for half of the hike.

Great for out of town visitors who are not used to hiking. My dad is 54 and my aunt is 60 and they both did fine on this trail.

Very easy hike with great views of the local red rock formations. This hike is short enough that you could easily pair it with another hike at the park, like the south rim loop. Overall Roxborough is probably my favorite front range park due to the combination of accessibility from the metro and beautiful views! See photos of the hike on my instagram @seesienza.
