A gentle hike with spectacular red rock views Roxborough State Park is a true natural gem, conveniently located in Southwest Denver. The park is one of the best places near Denver to encounter wildlife. The highlight of this hike will be the dramatic views of the red rock formations angling skyward. This trail offers some of the best views in the park, and is less crowded than the fountain valley trail. This is a state park so you will need to purchase a day pass for $6, or an annual pass for around $60. In order to protect the wildlife and the natural state of the park there are some restrictions here.Restrictions - Pets are not permitted in the park. - Visitors must remain on park trails. - Trails are closed to horses and bicycles. - Rock climbing is prohibited. - The park is open to day use only

This is an easy trail with great views and lots of benches along the way to rest and enjoy the open fields and views of the rocks. Also some great city views. Best during the week since it's much less busy. Bummer you have to pay $7 every time you go but since it's a state park you have to. But worth it for sure.

Nice early morning hike on 1/1. I parked by the first parking are on the left when entering in the park, before the main visitor lot. You can hop right on the trail there. I then ended up back by the visitor center at the end of the hike, and the trail didn't really appear to lead back to my car, so just had to walk the short ways on the road back down to my vehicle. Nice views, only saw one other group of two hikers the whole time. Sections are icy but fine with my microspikes and taking it a little slow in areas.
