A great meeting spot for friends as it's at the base of the canyon. Close to the boulder creek, it's a fun little park to hike around then head down to the creek to cool off.

We recently visited Settlers Park for the first time. We found the hike to be fairly easy up to the red rock formations. There are beautiful views of Boulder from the top. There was plenty of free parking, too.

It's another surprise. I was expecting the regular park with nice plants an benches. They are there too, but there is a really big and beautiful area for hiking with awesome rocks and views of the Boulder city. You would need hours to hike everywhere....More

Lived in Boulder for almost a year and finally made it to Settler’s. There are no words to describe how amazing it is. Breathtaking. I didnt see the mountain lion warning until AFTER our hike. 😲

Nice short hike with great views. The park rangers were nice enough to post a sign saying there had been a mountain lion sighting on the trail with the date listed. We still did the hike and saw no animals.

The trail up to the red rocks is too strenuous for this senior, but I enjoyed walking down below the trail, reading the informational signs and taking pictures. We appreciated the picnic table!

This is one of the first and most familiar places that I began hiking when I moved here a long time ago. Since then, the park has changed very little. At the top of this 1/2 a mile (but moderately steep) hike, you will find...More

I spent around 90 minutes hiking here. I was in town for an Ingress event, and one of the "missions" involved visiting Settler's Park. This was a nice hike for several reasons, besides the game play. It is a beautiful location with both paved paths...More

As we were leaving Chautauqua Park (after hiking there most of the day) we noticed, in the distance, a cluster of red rocks. A park ranger told us how to get there and after about 10 minutes we were there. It appeared that the main...More
