My wife and I wanted a nice, low, snow-free hike and settled on Carpenter in Roxborough. Great views of the south Denver metro area. Really easy and fun eight miler if you do the whole loop.
Great hike on a beautiful day!
Nice shaded area about middle of the hike.
Spring-time in the Rockies.
Nice early winter hike. Love the park, will be back to see the change in seasons.
Hiked and run several times during different seasons.
Took over the SP page and wanted to check out the area. Pretty mellow hike.
Nice Thanksgiving Day hike with my son.
2nd time February 22, 2015
A great hike with my wife. We summited via the Carpenter Peak Trail and returned via the Powerline and Elk Valley Trails. A beautiful fall day with nice fall colors.
Sure like this place!
Another nice conditioning hike for Denver locals that I've done several times. Especially good for early season, in spite of the possibility of mud.
Hiked this numerous times. There is a summit that the trail bypasses that actually is 7,205 feet which is higher than the named summit. Probably only for diehards who wish to hit the actually highpoint. It has scrub oak all over it and the view isn't as good as the peak itself.
nice morning hike before work
Long but scenic hike
Warm April temperatures (nearly 60 degress F) and a September-blue sky combined to make this one wonderful outing. Good friends for hiking partners, warm sunshined, wide-open views. The trail was insanely muddy, but that only added to the fun. Hiking partners: Jana & Donna.
This was a nice hike.
I had to come back and face Powerline again. This time the trail was much more manageable and it was an easy day.
bring gaiters! I took the standard route up, but went around back to the Powerline trail to get home. This was a big mistake without snowshoes. I was in thigh deep snow most of the way which made this one of the most exhausting hikes of my life. The trail could not be found after a while and I was forced to break trail and bushwhack over the ridge back to the original trail.
Hiked with Ian on a clear, warm day. Great views of Denver, Roxborough State Park, and the unusual red rock formations. Friends live within walking distance, so I plan on doing this one again someday.
