We hike the trials and have picnics in Mount Falcon all the time. It is beautiful and the trails vary for an experience that fit any individual, couple, or family. You can hike all day or take a short walk but either way, you will love the view. Mount Falcon is a relatively short drive from Denver and wildlife can be seen! Mount Falcon is perfect for locals and visitors that would like to see some of Colorado's gorgeous mountains.

Mt Falcon is just a hop skip and a jump from Denver down US-285. If you have an afternoon to kill I highly recommend making the short drive to Mt. Falcon Park for some trail hiking. The trails are well maintained and the views of the Front Range (Denver/Plains) are frequent and spectacular! Keep your eyes open for mountain bikers, deer and turkeys! The hills surrounding Mt Falcon Park are full of them! IF you have additional time continue west from Mt Falcon to Evergreeen for a nice lunch or dinner.

We stumbled upon this wonderful park by chance. We had our two dogs with us and once their leashes were on we stepped out onto the first trail which was a level, wide easy trail. Quickly we veered off onto another trail less traveled. It was more rugged but easily maneuverable with tennis shoes. This took us thru tall trees yet allowed plenty of light so as not to be frightening. Many mountain bikers use this trail but they were very courteous to us as we were to them.

We got squawked at by a chipmunk who was not happy we were looking up at him but that was the only animal we saw during our hike.

Be sure to grab a map before you get too far. What started out as "hey, what's over there?" ended up being a 5 mile total hike and I was thankful for the map which got us back to the parking lot.

I love hiking at Mt. Falcon. It is so close to the city you can get there in no time. The trails are always clear and pretty busy! If you're looking for a short escape from the city this is your place!

Hikers stick to the Turkey trot trail so you don't have to deal with bikers. Go early in the summer because it gets HOT quick!
