A variety of hikes for any level of athleticism
Jun. 2021
We wanted a fairly easy two-hour hike and looked to All Trails for options. We ended up here and took a variety of options on the Whipple Trail Loop — North trail to Broken Boyfriend to South. It's 4.2 miles and about two hours. Stunning views! A quickie hike is the Bridge to Bridge, which is about 30 minutes. The trail head is near the deadend of Main Street. Quick and convenient!

Gorgeous Hike
Apr. 2021
Gorgeous hike along the Arkansas River! You can do a loop hike, as there are 2 foot/bike bridges that cross the river. There are a lot of gorgeous boulders all along the hike, both in the river and along the trail itself, especially on the 'upper' (east) side. If you have someone in your party who has issues scrambling up/down a boulder or 2 while hiking, the trail on the lower/west side of the river is a lot easier to hike. But if at all possible, you should do the entire loop. It's not that long, allow about an hour so you can stop to take pictures.

Oh what a cool spot

This is an awesome little park. Very well maintained, very nice trails, and wonderful views of the river. Definitely worth a stop over if you're in Buena Vista.

Truman show
Sep. 2020 • Couples
I was really impressed with this area of town. A retail owner indicated that this was the town dump 11 years ago. All the buildings are in mint condition. It reminded me of the Truman show with Jim Carey. Kudos to the town for creating such a scenic setting for the entire family to enjoy outside

Beautiful place to explore
Aug. 2020 • Couples
Beautiful place to take a morning hike. Plenty of exploring available - climb on the rocks or just sit and enjoy the water.

Great views
Jul. 2020
We had an hour wait until our rafting trip began, and it was suggested that we take a walk through the BV River park. It was an easy walk/hike with beautiful views. We watched boarders ride some of the rapids......very relaxing spot.

Gorgeous riverside park
Jul. 2020
Stunning riverfront park with a nice "bridge to bridge" walk/hike along the river. The hike isn't terribly difficult but does have a few minor steep parts, so it wouldn't be suitable for some folks. The river is gorgeous, the mountain backdrop is unbeatable, and it's dog friendly! Great people watching as folks raft down the river, surf the waterfalls, or just dip in the water. If you grab takeout from one of the restaurants in town, there are picnic tables to use. Parking is pretty easy, too. I
