Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is a premier entertainment venue that expertly mixes social entertainment with the beautiful natural surroundings of the rocky plains. You don’t want to miss out on this gorgeous rocky concert hall under the stars in the scenic land where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains.
Over the 868 acres, you will find two hiking trails, a giant open-air amphitheater, shops for souvenirs and more, dining venues, and huge red sandstone rock formations. You have the option of going for a hike and then stopping and dining before seeing a show. Even the restaurants have magnificent views of the rocky valleys below. This mountain park is owned and operated by the City of Denver which explains the unique and tantalizing mix of attractions. Health and nature meet entertainment in a quintessential Denver style to create a one of a kind destination for your group.
Out of the two trails available to the public, the Trading Post Trail is perhaps the easier walk at only 1.4 miles around. Start at the Trading Post souvenir shop to start your tour through the Fountain and Lyons rock formations. The other trail, Red Rocks Trail, is a 6-mile loop through many of the area’s most popular photogenic rock formations. Be aware that parts of these trails may get narrow and/or steep. Red Rocks Park also holds fitness events for exercising in the area including Yoga Days and a 12-week Fitness Challenge.
As it is essentially an entertainment venue, Red Rocks host concerts and social events throughout the year. The warm months bring in the Jeep Summer Concert Series with performers like Ed Sheeran, Death Cab for Cutie, Van Halen, Florence + the Machine, Hozier, and Sam Smith among others. Check regular schedules or ask your travel agent about what kinds of events are being held during your stay.
