      Boulder, CO 80302

    Overview 

    Great for: Geology, history, nature
    Settlers Park
    Follow the relatively easy Red Rocks Trail up to a collection of otherworldly sandstone spires overlooking the city of Boulder. These are perfect scrambling rocks for kids. The trailhead also happens to be part of Boulder’s origin story — it’s where the first non-native residents settled in 1858.
