Red Rocks Park

Outdoor Activities

A trip to Denver is incomplete without a visit to the fascinating Red Rocks Park. Spanning over 640 acres (259 hectares), Red Rocks Park features red sandstone formations set in the foothills only 15 miles (24.14 kilometers) west of Denver. A pair of 300-hundred-foot (91.44 meters) sandstone pillars, Creation Rock and Ship Rock, bookend the park's amphitheater and give the place its surreal setting. An impressive view of the Denver skyline adds to the park's visual drama. The park has two hiking or cycling trails.
