A Beautiful 45 minutes from downtown Denver accessible by the US 36, US 6 Or CO-93.
Our favorite way is Highway 6 to experience the river the whole way on the side and take 93 to keep it green and interesting rather than taking 36 through Broomfield. Multiple stops to enjoy on this route like the flatirons vista and Eldorado springs itself.
One of the easiest trails to get there and also is ADA compliant. The trail is very well-traveled and features signs showing the history of the Town and some interesting views. The first 1 mile of Fowler trail has the most views, scenery and is very well shaded. The rest of the trail can get hot in the summer months but a very enjoyable easy trail that family can enjoy.
The trail to Fowler Trail is very easy, accessible, and not crowded with small inclines making it an easier trail to navigate with the family for education and or just to enjoy the multitude of different terrains without trying to hike or drive a distance in or from the main attraction, Eldorado Springs.
