Roxborough State Park covers nearly 4000 acres and is filled with dramatic red-rock formations, four eco systems and a host of wildlife, from black bears to mule deer. For good reason, the park is a designated Colorado Natural Area and a National Natural Landmark.

From the Visitors Center we will explore the new Willow Creek trail and then back track and do the South Rim Trail with great views of the red rocks.

Following the hike group members new to Roxborough may want to visit the visitors center, to see it's great interpretive displays of local natural history.


This hike will be led by CMC trip leader John Walters who is also a volunteer naturalist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife at Roxborough State Park.

John will email all hikers two days before the hike with the latest weather forecast and final details.


Starting this April, the Denver Member Initiatives Committee (DMIC) is excited to offer the Ascending Hikes series.  This program is geared towards new members and individuals seeking to gradually increase their fitness and hiking difficulty, with the goal of reaching the summit of a Colorado 14er in July 2019.  Members can sign up for any hike and do not have to sign up for the series.

The series will begin with a classification of Easy A hikes ( up to 8 miles round trip and/or 1200 ft. elevation gain) and progress to a classification of Difficult B hikes (up to 12 miles round trip and/or 2500 ft. elevation gain).  Hikes will occur on Tuesday and Saturday



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
