There are lots of aspen here-cant wait to go back in a few weeks. It is beautiful. There are some really nice hiking trails and picnic spots. A real nice park not too far at all from Denver.

I reviewed this place 3 years ago and I have to leave another one about the signage. You can tell somebody TRIED to create an accurate and comprehensive set of signs on the trails, but fell well short of that goal. Some places have signs...More

This is a great park to escape from the big city and it's one many of Denver's residents don't know about! You can do everything from fishing to rock climbing. Make sure to stop at the visitor's center before you enter the park. Enjoy!

Good hiking location with lots of trails. Not as busy as some other places so you can have some alone time. Has some really nice camp sites as well which are spread out and near fishing and hiking areas.

Near Denver. Has some nice hiking trails but is not suitable for most RV's. A fishing pond, nice places for picnics.

Although it is tough to get into the campgrounds, we were lucky enough to spend 10 days here in our RV. There are only electrical hook-ups, but there is also a "sanitation station" to dump and to get fresh water. Book 6 months in advance...More

I would think you could, but you'll need to call the park directly to make sure. It would certainly be a gorgeous area to capture on video. Good luck!

It's a winding road up from hwy 93. Maybe a 45 minute drive if you're comfortable on mountain roads. Maybe a bit less. It's high, so you could encounter weather. Wear layers. The weather could be different than in Golden... More
