A beautiful respite tucked away in the foothills outside of Boulder. The hikes offer beautiful views of the river and towering rocks of the canyon.

Loved this moderate level hike. Views from multiple spots were spectacular. Everyone on trail super friendly even though there were many people making the trek, young and old. Suggest getting to area before 10am to beat crowds. Lots of amazing hiking and shaded trails.

It is 8 dollars to enter the park. We tried many times to park our car somewhere before the park entrance but there are really no other options.
