Before You Go: Check Trail & Parking Conditions
- Natural Areas Trail Conditions webpage fcgov.com/naturalareas/status
- COTREX https://trails.colorado.gov/
The busiest times at natural areas are weekends, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m., so try visiting earlier or later, or on weekday mornings for the best chance at parking. Have an alternate destination in mind. When parking lots are full try another trailhead or come back another time. Avoid a parking ticket! Only park in designated spaces.
