This is a steep hike, but it’s only about a mile long. Would recommend to see some awesome red rocks. You can climb up them too. Not many people were here, which is nice to get away from the crowds. If needed, take your time climbing up.

Went hiking here with our seven year old. He was capable of completing this hike. It did get a little anxiety ridden when we got closer to the top. I recommend if the child has impulse control and good listening skills. This is not a run up run down trail for kids but the views are magnificent. Hidden gem!

Fun hike, moderate by Colorado standards. Well marked trail, no water but a nice Farmer's Creek, since 1892, on the way up.
Nice views from Boulder to Denver and Longmont. Shady places to stop and enjoy the view out of the 90 degree sun.
Parking can be challenging on weekends which limits the number of hikers.

At the foot of Boulder Canyon, nice stream running through it, often quiet, nice place for a picnic or family gathering

This is a quick and easy way to get a sense of what the "red rocks" are all about. And it is also a good way to make a short hike into a nice long hike if you care to keep going up the hill. We have taken our young grandchildren here to get them accustomed to altitude and have never been disappointed. A bit of luck needed to be sure about parking -- but during the week we have not had a problem.
Pay off is a chance to swim in the Boulder Creek -- so this is a double pleasure.

This is a great little park with a network of trails (many spurs of the Red Rocks Trail) and trails that lead to other trails. Parking is very limited and there is no restroom, however. It is fun to scramble among the rock formations. You need to have your dog on a leash but not everyone got that memo.

If you are visiting Boulder, Settler's Park is a must do! This is a moderate uphill hike with beautiful views once you reach the rocks. There were a lot of other trails we did not explore, so could be a great place to bring a picnic and stay for several hours or visit more than once to explore! The paths are dirt, but some areas are rocky and more difficult to pass, so would not be good for a stroller, but I think most kids would enjoy the challenge of this hike. There were several free parking spots available and it is a dog friendly park.

This is my favorite Boulder hike, mostly because it is so short you can do it many times a week, and you end up with the opportunity for a little scrambling and a great view!

I loved the hiking trails so close to downtown. Beautiful day and well suited for the visitor needing to get their mountain legs. Loved the views from the top.

I really enjoyed the mountain trails at Settler’s Park. When doing the Red Rocks Trail, definitely wear hiking shoes as I was close to losing my balance several times. The north side of mountain is shady so it’s cooler than the south side of the mountain. Dress appropriately.
