I've hiked in this park all four seasons and love it. The trails are not too challenging yet still get into mountain scenery that is authentic. Good for solo, couples and family hikes with picnic tables and camp grounds at the base.

Great place to see the first yellow fall leaves and enjoy the nature, be there on early fall season, the threes loose the leaves on an earlier stage than in the City of Denver area.

Couldn't find a parking spot at the top, so we motored on to right before the road starts down. We were able to get some really pretty photos, without the crowds, of both the aspens and the expansive views. If you are a hiker, you...More

Just drove over the pass and found the leaves about half turned on Kenosha Pass, so the view will be perfect in the next few days. The same is true for Hoosier Pass on Highway 9 between Alma and Breckenridge. Lower elevations in Park County...More

Great views to stop and admire. Also a trailhead for the Continental Divide. People tend to drive fast through here so keep your head on a swivel for traffic

Last week, Friday July 7th, we hiked the south side of Kenosha Pass where there was still a plethora of Columbines along with Indian Paintbrush. Easy hike and easy drive from Denver

From the top of Kenosha Pass the whole of Park County scenery is something to take in. I've hiked this part of the Colorado Trail many times in summer and on showshoes in winter. While its a popular place to stop, its worth your time.

Driving north on CO 285, between Fairplay and Denver, you can't help but drive over Kenosha Pass. It is worth a stop to look at the amazing views and to hike a bit of the Colorado Trail in either direction. In fall, the place is...More
