|Happy Rock dog on the Red Rocks trail|
Distance: There are many miles of trails starting from this trailhead; but the main trail is a 4.2 mile loop that can be completed in about 4 hours, or less. The trail loop starts with the .3 mile 'Village Walk' trail, which continues to the Red Rocks trail for .8 miles. Next there is an intersection where the loop starts and ends; take either path for a 2 mile loop, and then follow the path you came back to the parking lot.
Difficulty: Easy for about 1 mile, then moderate as the trail gains elevation.
Specs: There are picnic tables, grills, and restrooms (pit toilets) at the trailhead, and along the river. There is ample parking during the week, but the weekends often find crowding. Overflow parking across the street. Dogs need to be leashed per Open Space rules.
