Hike the Red Rocks Loop Trail

1 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Settlers Park Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Ryan Dewane

This short 1-mile loop is an easy getaway that features scenic views of all of Boulder and massive rock formations (great for bouldering).

Parking is available on either Canyon or Sunshine Roads. During the weekends it tends to get crowded around sunset so plan accordingly. The entire trail is a loop and is a little over 1 mile in length so it doesn't take too long. The main feature is the massive red sand stone rocks that jut out of the earth like fins. They are extremely easy to climb in some parts and on the top provide great views of all of downtown Boulder. If you like to Boulder then there are some more technical climbing spots around the rocks that you can have fun with. Once you are done you can head to Pearl St. for some food and drinks!

A Tranquil Getaway

This short 1-mile loop is a tranquil getaway that features scenic views of all of Boulder and massive rock formations.

This is a cool little park on the west side of Boulder that gives visitors the opportunity to check out some cool rock formations. Although not as big as say Red Rocks or Garden Of The Gods, the formations still make for some neat exploring.

A nice spot to take visitors from out-of-town for an easy hike.

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
