"Less than an hour’s drive south of Denver (and south of Chatfield Reservoir), Roxborough State Park offers visitors a look at more than 1.7 billion years of geologic time spread across a variety of natural habitats. Mule deer, coyotes, and squirrels are common sights here, and bobcats and elk make occasional appearances. Watchful visitors sometimes see a golden eagle circling overhead. The best way to sample this unspoiled enclave of nature is via the South Rim Trail, among the park’s newest trails." Read more
