Bluffs Regional Park

Bluffs Loop Trail at Bluffs Regional Park

August 10, 2010 |  by

We hike the Bluffs more than any other trail near Denver. It’s close to home and is a great hike or run for taking the jogging stroller. The Bluffs Regional Park features a 2.7 mile loop and 2 spurs that lead to panoramic overlooks. You’ll get fantastic views of Denver and the of front range. We prefer hitting the trail as the sun is setting. Sometimes, as it gets dark, warm winds will kick up as the city lights begin to appear.

Be aware of horses on the trail and give the the right of way. There is a gentleman who likes to ride his horse in the late afternoon/early evening who can be quite reckless. I’ve seen him nearly collide with parties of hikers on two occasions. Just be aware of him.

  2. Thank you Aaron. After finding your website and reading the review, I went for this hike today with a few of my friends with their children. Strollers and kids. What a wonderful hike. Thank you for your detailed information. This is the best blog!

  3. I’d like to mention that there is very little protection from the elements once you are out there (wind, sun etc) so it is a good idea to check the weather and dress approperately.
    The trail is wide so it is very dog friendly.
    Thanks for the info about this hike. It was close to home and nice. I don’t think I would have found it if it wasn’t for you.
    I really appreciate your website. I’ve used it a few times and find it a great tool to enhance my hiking enjoyment. It’s obvious you’ve put a lot of work into it. Thank you.

  4. First thanks for the site, my wife and I just moved to Colorado from Oklahoma and we have found it very useful to get out and start exploring our new state. We did this one today. Great hike to get out of the house for an hour. Pretty quick and great views. We went at noon on a Sunday so a bit crowded and it was windy, but that didn’t detour us at all.
