For more than one hundred years, Denver’s Mountain Parks have helped make Colorado a very special place where generations could grow and play in the mountains - and share in the magnificent dream. Today 22 accessible parks and 24 conservation areas total 14,000 acres and comprise one of the most expansive and unique park systems in the West. All outside Denver city limits, the mountain parks extend across four counties and at altitudes from 6,000 to more than 13,000 feet. Denver Mountain Parks’ visitors can enjoy a world class concert at Red Rocks, carved out of 300-million year-old sandstone and the only naturally occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world, ski at the international resort at Winter Park, and explore important historic sites such as Lookout Mountain, the final resting place of Buffalo Bill Cody – in addition to hiking, fishing, golfing,picnicking, or simply relaxing. The parks are: Bergen, Corwina, Daniels, Dedisse, Echo Lake, Fillius, Genesee, Little, Lookout Mountain, O’Fallon, Pence, Red Rocks, and Summit Lake. Read more on the Mountain Parks Attractions page.
