“Great little park”

Matthews/Winters Park
Ranked #25 of 62 things to do in Golden
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A conveniently located park to travelers and locals alike. Right off I-70 at the Red Rocks exit. Great spot for a picnic along the creek, lots of hiking trails that connect to Red Rocks Park as well. Restrooms and free parking. The scenic Hogback Trail is east, right across the highway. A natural park; no ballfields, concession stands, etc. Lots of tall grass so be wary of rattlesnakes in the summer.

A nice variety of trails in the easy-moderate range with a mix of sun and shade at all times of the year. The trail system connects to the Red Rocks trails and is just across the road from the trail along the top of Dinosaur Ridge. You can easily hike for a couple of hours or a full day if you have the desire and time. There is plenty of parking with restroom facilities at the trailhead.

Nice hiking trails and is close to Red Rocks Amphitheater. It's nice to combine the two for a great workout.

In Colorado, along the front range; the issues between hikers and mtn. bikers are notorious. The bikers want to go ast and yield to no one going up hill. The hikers want the bikers gone.
Mathew Winters has solved it somewhat, but in the end it took terrain away from both. Boo.

Close-in park that that features some of the same rock formations that make up Red Rocks park. A variety of nice trails for hikers and bikers. Also home to the world famous Dinosaur Ridge site which is worth a visit too.
