“Red Rocks Park has 868 acres of pine tree-speckled geological marvels, meadows, wildlife habitats and dinosaur fossils to investigate. The park’s grounds, situated at 6,450 feet, represent the intersection between the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains. As a result, there is a great mix of plant and animal life from both environments in the area.
Red Rocks has two hiking trails that provide access to area’s best natural landscape and panoramic views of Denver and beyond. The Trading Post Trail is a 1.4-mile loop that takes visitors around the park’s trademark rock formations, while the Red Rocks Trail connects with Matthew Winters Park to the north for a dramatic 6-mile hike. The Red Rocks Trail can also connect with the Dakota Ridge Trail to the east. While you’re on the trails, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of prairie dogs, rabbits, red foxes, Mule deer and other wild friends.” Source Colorado.com
