This was our first visit to the park and we thought it was well worth the time to visit. The visitors center was really nothing to see but the park itself was beautiful.

This was our first time visiting Golden Gate Canyon and we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful park with lots of excellent hiking trails for all abilities. The fall colors on the aspen trees were incredible. The park felt very far removed from civilization...More

A great place to spend the day or longer. The fall colors were at their peak and this park has plenty of places to take a look. Plenty of trails if you like. The trout at the visitor center are enough to make any fisherman...More

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.

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!

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
