The Red Rocks Trail runs through the east side of the park and is a 5.8-mile, out and back, multi-use trail for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking with an elevation gain of over 1,100 feet. There is a connecting trail from the Lower North Parking Lot to Red Rocks Trail that contains a few steps.
The trail splits with one segment going north to connect to Jefferson County’s Matthews / Winters Park and the other segment goes east to connect to the Dakota Ridge Trail.
The Red Rocks Trail continues to Matthews / Winters Park, creating a dramatic 6-mile loop.
The trail connecting to Red Rocks Trail and Red Rocks Trail to Matthews / Winters Park are the only trails in the park that bicycles are permitted on.
