Morrison, CO: Mt Falcon Hike

After the pretty exhausting (but wonderful) experience of our engagement hike, we decided to not try any other 14ers on this trip (none of them really seemed doable with all the snow). But that didn't mean we didn't want to keep hiking at lower elevations. Eric found us this gem about half an hour outside Denver: Mt Falcon Park. We did this hike detailed on Day Hikes Near Denver, plus a little more, which took us to a castle ruin and a fire tower, and gave us some amazing views of the area. I will let the photos do most of the talking. We had a gorgeous day for this hike.

We could see Red Rocks from a part of this hike. We were up on the fire tower at this point.

And downtown Denver.

I can't get over how beautiful these mountains are.

The castle ruins were pretty ruinous, but still cool to see.

The road that led into the park was called Oh-Kay Rd. Awesome.

If you are looking for a lower elevation hike near Denver with great views on a pretty day, this is a good choice. There is a big parking area but it was fairly full when we were there. We also took a picnic lunch and plenty of water with us, as we were hiking for several hours (we did probably 5 miles in the park).
