Maps for the Mountain Parks
Although maps for the Denver Mountain Parks are scarce and scattered, they are not nonexistent. New maps are being developed, and there are also several maps available in the draft Master Plan.
We've collected map links available on the web here to help you find Mountain Park lands and trails. All links will open in a new window; most go to pdf files that you can zoom.
Basic maps for several parks are available on our Map Page.
Most of the Denver Mountain Parks are in Jefferson County. Thanks to cooperative efforts with Jefferson County Open Space over the last few years, more parks and trails are accessible. Maps available from other sites include:
Red Rocks Park Trails (Denver Theatres & Arenas)
The 1.4 mile Trading Post Trail stays within the park, but also links to the Dakota Ridge Trail (2.2 miles), with a loop return to Matthews-Winters Park (JCOS).
Bergen Peak Park
Although this is a "conservation/wilderness park," it is accessible via the 2.4-mile Too Long Trail to Bergen Peak, from the Meadow Trail in Elk Meadow Park (JCOS).
Dedisse Park Trails
Alderfer-3 Sisters Park map (JCOS) Take a right from Sisters Trail or Hidden Fawn Trail in this park to find Dedisse Trail, which winds through the western edge and northern section of Dedisse Park and connects northward to the Pioneer Trail through Evergreen.
Matthews Winters Park (JCOS)
1.5 miles of trail in Red Rocks Park connect to the Morrison Slide Trail and the Red Rocks Trail in this 2344-acre OS park.
Mt. Falcon Park (JCOS)
Three DMP parcels totaling 160 acres adjoin Mt Falcon. The 1.1 mile Devil’s Elbow loop trail uses the 80-acre DMP parcel.
Flying J Ranch Park (JCOS)
The 2-mile Shadow Pine Loop trail in this park uses small DMP parcels (80 acres) to create access for a longer hike in this new 361-acre OS park.
