Eldorado Canyon, Boulder Reviews - Write a Review

  • Neat little hiking area near the Denver metro. Easy drive about 5 minutes into the mountains. No real amenities besides a spring pool. There are plenty of rock climbers to watch or join in. Fairly short and easy trail as well leading to a view of the continental divide.

  • Just a really beautiful, well kept park with some historic preservation. Popular place for hikers, climbers and photographers. Perfect location too, not far from Denver or Boulder. Be weary if you park in the town to access the park, I think the locals are aware of it and will make you pay the price, rightfully so!

  • I always hike and jog here. I bring my dog and sometimes even leash up my cat. I always do my acrobats here and do cartwheels down the side of the canyon for good excercise. Even when I bring my roller blades I am able to swiftly cartwheel down the side of any mountain. Thanks for the great memories!!

  • One of the closest State Parks to Boulder offering hiking, rock climbing, picnicking and sight seeing. Stunning rugged landscape of canyon walls surround you as you stroll along the 3rd cleanest water source in the country, Eldorado Springs. Beginners to expert terrain. Show up early as parking is limited and often fills by 10am in the weekends.

  • As a guide service and outfitter in Colorado Parks and Wildlife, we feel lucky to have the opportunity to work in Eldorado Canyon SP. It is one of the true gems in our state. The park staff has been so great to work with for many years of guiding, instructing wilderness medicine and educational classes, providing experiential team building events. Many morning before work we are in climbing in Eldo - we are lucky! Make sure to support Eldorado Canyon SP for any events they are sponsoring!
