The falls fill this roadside park with splendor. Take a hike up and around so that you can take photos from every vantage point. The rock climbers are entertaining in their own right. We enjoyed a picnic and a day.

Visited after a snowfall. Good selection of trails. Walking along the stream was beautiful. Not far from Boulder.

Beautiful drive on an easy dirt road past the Ranger Station. Pay use for cars, free for walk-ins. You drive alongside the river for perhaps a mile and it dead ends at a BBQ/picnic table area that seems either very empty or very crowded depending...More

We walked through Eldorado Canyon, and it's a really beautiful place to be. It's very picturesque and you can see rock climbers, as the canyon walls are quite steep in areas. This canyon is extremely photogenic. Highly recommended.

There are a couple of hiking trails on offer at varying difficulties. All offer picturesque views of the canyon and greater surrounding area. Definitely worth a visit.

there are so many outdoor experiences to be had in Eldorado Canyon. Or you can picnic or people watch or photograph the outdoors. Quite a beautiful place!

A good day’s hike. Short trip from Boulder. Go earlier in the day. Can get pretty dark pretty quick.

I loved the canyon area and scenery, but it is rustic with a capitol R. Driving in and out feels more like trespassing on private land, with no guarantee you'll be able to pass or get back out. Not for delicate, low riding vehicles, you...More

We visited the park yesterday and had a wonderful time. We parked near the entrance and walked to the visitor center. Then did the trail right to the east (stairs and lots of elevation change). Amazing views. Then came down and did the Fowler Trail...More
