“encompassing 885 acres of meadows, rolling hills, & vast canyons”
Eldorado Canyon State Park is part of the Colorado State Park system. It is located in Boulder County near the city of Boulder. The park consists of two areas, the Inner Canyon which is developed and Crescent Meadows (undeveloped area). The park encompasses 885 acre with a variety of recreation opportunities available.
So beautiful and only $10 a car to enter! Definitely worth the stop!
Eldorado Canyon State Park is an underrated area of Boulder in my opinion! Here you’ll find hikes featuring famous ruins, the Continental Divide Overlook, and some of the best technical rock climbing routes. For lunch or camping, stop through the city of Nederland.
My favorite hiking trail in the park is the Rattlesnake Gulch Trail, which is not too technical and features views of both the Crag’s Ruins and stunning views of the Continental Divide Overlook. If you’re planning on going in the winter, be sure to bring microspikes or ice climbing gear.
We think a trip here is one of the best things to do in Boulder!
