On South Wadsworth, a few miles beyond Waterton Canyon is Boxborough State Park. After you pass the entrance on the way to the visitor center, keep your eyes open and searching the grassy hillside for deer. Sometimes all you see are their ears. If you...More

Day use only state park with good hiking & amazing views, marred only by encroaching development! Varied hiking trails includes easy half mile to moderate/challenging 6.4 mile hikes. You decide how much you want to take on! We hiked both Fountain Valley & the South...More

Love this park. We'll be back often. Visitor center, parking, wide trails, are all great. The best thing is the amazing red rock cliffs. There is a view of downtown Denver off in the distance, about like at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Sunset was amazing. I'd...More

Jeffco Open Space Parks are fabulous for walking, mountain bike or equestrian riding, or just meditating. This park has amazing red rock formations. It's quiet, a place where you can hear yourself think, if you're a hiker or meditator. I highly recommend it, especially during...More

Great place to spend a couple of hours. The park is one of the best maintained in the state of Colorado. It's absolutely stunning with the flat irons.

I had been to Roxborough State Park several times when I was a child. The main loop is a good trail for families - not too long or strenuous. But this past visit I did Carpenter's Peak with my 60 year old father. It's a...More

Small but pleasant to hike. $7 entrance fee.Parking ok. Paved trail. Easy hike. If you have been to the Utah National Parks, then this park will disappoint you.

Hi. If you have a State park pass you can get in for free, if not it is a daily fee of $8.00 . Be prepared to have cash on hand in case no one is at front booth then you have to place in a slot. It's worth the beauty. Hope... More
