Outdoor Activities

Set ablaze by the fervent glow of the sun, the scarlet magnetism of the Red Rocks park is compelling as it is humbling. Looming sentinels of gradient-red sandstone cliffs pierce the skies in this geological wonderland that lies nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Quirkily christened for their shape and form, some of the formations include the Seat of Pluto and the Cave of the Seven Ladders. However, one of the most winning features of this rose-tinted rock park that has received much exposure over the years, is the Red Rocks Amphitheater. This unique outdoor venue, a sweeping concert stage corralled by a fleet of towering boulders miraculously lends itself to excellent acoustics, and has previously hosted legends like the Beatles and John Denver.
