I love this state park and the only reason I give it 4/5 stars is that it is EXTREMELY overused! (and the trail signs could use some work)

Nice place to hike. Visitor center small but well done. Good place when higher areas are in the clouds.

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
