You can get a great escape from the burbs, a good workout and spectacular views at Red Rocks. The trails are fairly easy with couple of steep climbs up from the shore. the views are spectacular. The beach area is not great for sunbathing-it's rocky...More

Great park with wide trails and vistas of the lake. Went in the winter and the trails can be quite icy. Need to be careful or properly equipped. Woods were beautiful after a fresh snowfall!!

Make Red Rocks number one on your list of beautiful walks in the Burlington area. The paths are gorgeous, winding their way around the park, leading up to the majestic cliffs overlooking the majestic Lake Champlain. This park is definitely not to be missed!

I wanted to see Lake Champlain and looked for a place we could park and spend a little time. Red Rocks Park fit the criteria. It was Tuesday, so there was no problem finding free parking. After looking at the trail map, we chose a...More

I love this park, but it is unfortunate that some visitors refuse to clean up after themselves. I think it is mostly young people going there to party and jump off the rocks, but either way it is upsetting. It is a lovely place to...More

Well maintained trails but no markings to tell you your location. We took a picture of the trail map before we entered and that was helpful but it is a little confusing. The trails are nice and shaded. There was a bench along the edge...More

Went here for a quick swim with kids. We were visiting a friend who lived nearby, so we didn't have to pay for parking which was about $6. It's a short hike to the beach and there are a couple of hiking trails nearby. You...More

Lots of space, plentiful trails and comfortable picnic spots. The water front is the Lake Champlain eastern shore just North of Shelburne Bay and South of the City of Burlington. Access to the 7+ miles of waterfront bike path is easy and well maintained.

Flip-flops are ok for most of the park but if you want to explore the rocky shoreline then snickers would be better. You park right in the park. The park is only 100 acres but it has many different trails so hiking 1 mile is... More
