Eldorado canyon is a great place to go for a hike. Also really enjoy watching the many rock climbers that are always present here.

Both in views, trail and seeing a little rattle(snack)! Be careful, but enjoy! It is worth the potential scare for the beautiful views!

It is very much worth it! There is no strenuous hiking if you follow the Fowler Trail. Bring comfortable sneakers.
