  • Really nice hiking trails from visitor center with great views and far fewer visitors than the nearby big national parks. Definitely worth a stop. Very helpful staff in visitor center.

  • Oil field flats Red Canyon Park 4 mile creek sand Gulch shelf Road these all come to mind when you think north of canon city. You can even go all the way up shelf Road to cripple Creek Colorado hopefully you’re not afraid of heights they don’t call it shelf Road for nothing. San Gulch is known for some world-class rock climbing wonderful camping sites beautiful views if you look to the south you can see the wonderful beautiful wet mountains range. To the east gigantic granite rock faces were you can go up and over to Phantom Canyon the west beautiful red rock ridges the top out into whiskey Park Deerhaven Hyde Park Rd. red Canyon national Park is a beautiful place to take a hike have a picnic have a family get together or if you just feel like getting out of town blowing off some steam see most of us in Colorado. Are drawn to the mountains it’s our sanctuary it’s our church it’s where we lose our self and we find our self. And you won’t understand it tell you felt it yourself there’s something about these granite mountains the wind whispering through the pine trees the water rushing down the canyons and the gorgeous sunrises sunsets it’s that Colorado love.
  • Good memories of a place I took my two sons in 2003. Back then I drove them up the riverbed in my 4 wheel drive. Now in 2022 the riverbed has dropped considerably. With new terrain the canyon is a bit deeper & can only be seen by foot. The hike is an adventure as you turn each corner to find a new view of the canyon walls.
