A continuous climb out of the prairie to the forested trail system in Mount Falcon Park gives hikers amazing views of the Front Range and leads them to several historic sites throughout the park.
Atop Mount Falcon itself, a wooden tower rises to yield intriguing views of the ruins, Red Rocks Park, and the Colorado plains.
To access the park, take the Indian Hills turn-off from U.S. Highway 285, follow Parmalee Gulch Road for five miles to Picutis Road, then follow the signs to the west parking area. East access is available from Colorado Highway 8 south of Morrison. Turn west on Forest Avenue and north on Vine Avenue.
