Have you ever hiked the trail to the top of Mount Morrison? We would love to hear what you enjoy most and how the trail could be improved. Jeffco Open Space (JCOS) is planning a new sustainable trail to access the summit of Mount Morrison. JCOS is conducting a public survey to better understand the number of people that visit the trail and the type of experience visitors are looking for when they use the trail. Please click the link to take the Mount Morrison Trail survey. The Mount Morrison survey closed on 6/21.

Visitors to Matthews/Winters Park will find a starting point for reaching the City of Denver’s Red Rocks Park by trail. Across County Road 93, the Hogback offers a different recreation experience, with a steep climb up to the hulking ridge between plains and foothills. Dinosaur Ridge Visitor Center is a neighboring attraction, providing interpretation for the dinosaur tracks imprinted on the eastern face of the Hogback.
