Red Rocks Mountain Park

It’s best known for having the world’s most epic amphitheatre, but the other 640 acres of Red Rocks Park are well worth exploring.

You’ll find several great pedestrian-only trails here, like the Funicular Trail, Geologic Overlook Trail, Mt. Vernon Creek Trail, Red Rocks Trail, and the Trading Post Trail. Others allow you to traverse the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains by mountain bike or horseback. No matter your mode of transportation, the 300-foot tall sandstone rocks and 200-mile panoramic views of Denver are something you have to see at least once.
