  • I liked the park as it was less crowded than Garden of the Gods. It was $7 to gain entry to the park for the day. We were only there a short while as we aren't big hikers/walkers since my partner had ...  more »
  • One of our favorite local getaways. The same type of red rock formations as the more famous Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. It’s a state park, so you need either a Colorado parks pass or a dai...  more »

  • What a great place to hike! There are both easy strolling and moderate effort trails amid outstanding red Rock formations. The main trails are wide and hard packed dirt. Off shoot smaller trails to special lookouts are much narrower and steep. You do get a workout as the main trails are not flat, but the inclinations are gentle and you are not struggling as you head uphill or down. The visitor center is well stocked with hiking books and pamphlets, and there is a 14 minute video presentation that's worth watching. Parking lot is generous. Visitor center staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Great park! Fantastic hike for low elevation/impact. You could bring a jogging stroller. The view reminds me of garden of the gods plus a view of downtown. There is a ranger station/gift shop with interactive kid stations. We will definitely go again!
  • Walking amidst slanting red rocks in a rugged terrain at around sunset - pure bliss. There are some really nice trails, well demarcated. In case you're a slouch, there's one overlook as well within 0.5 miles from where one could see a series of red rocks in pattern.
  • Had an awesome hike! It's winter time now and it was still a beautiful time. Plenty of knowledgeable people and friendly volunteers at the park. They let us take a laminated guide so we knew information about every stop on the hike. The red rocks are beautiful. If you're looking for a simple and easy hike this is the place to go. Unfortunately you cannot bring your four legged friends but that is for preservation reasons. All in all a great experience and a beautiful landscape!
  • Great views, and trails with varying degrees of difficulty for hiking. They also have a visitor center with bathrooms and guides to provide you with information and maps. You are required to pay an admission fee if you do not have a Colorado state parks pass. If you enjoy hiking Roxborough is worth the drive- about 40 to 50 mins from Denver.
