How wise the 19th Century city fathers were - the Denver mountain parks are splendid and many of them keep the foothills and mountains wild right next door! Of course Red Rocks Amphitheater is world famous, as is Winter Park, but look for the others...More

When friends come to town, we always take them to Red Rocks. We park at the Trading Post, check out the music museum and do the 1.4 mile loop through the rocks. It can get quite hot in the sun, but the trail is easy...More

Red Rocks is a spectacular place and it is a must see! We were so impressed by the museum and amphitheatre that we wanted to see a show as well. We got lucky to get tickets to see Chris Tomlin and friends. It was unbelievable!

I would visit red rocks for a concert. It has great views and good hiking as well. I would recommend this to visit and is a great place.

We visited Red Rocks and had a great time seeing the concert venue, visitor centre and doing a small 1.4 mile trail near the Trading Post. Definitely recommended.

The mountains and wildlife and the high points of this park. We took a leisurely trip through the park, stopping at any interesting points. They also have some spots that would be great for Mountain Climbing. Worth every penny!

These two places never disappoint when I have guests in town. Everybody can get around. There is always a place to park and the views are SO worth the trip.

No. I remember our tour guide saying that the bus had to be under a certain length to be allowed on the roads - lots of narrow stretches and hairpin turns. The bus tour is probably your best bet if you don't want to rent a... More

Also, please remember; when someone says : "I know a beautiful place in the mountains", I have to smile. There is possibly nowhere in the Rockies that is not beautiful. You cannot drive more than perhaps an hour into the... More
