If you can do only one thing on your visit to Colorado, take a hike at El Dorado Canyon State Park in Boulder! It’s the easiest way to “see” quintessential Colorado scenery.

To enjoy El Dorado Canyon State Park, you don’t even have to hike. Just drive the three miles from the city of Boulder into this “other-world,” pay the $9 Colorado state park fee by credit card or cash, and drive into a postcard.

The park’s iconic jagged rock faces greet visitors at the entrance. You follow the beautiful river and waterfalls below the rocks and take your pick of trails.

The 0.7 mile Fowler Trail provides spectacular views and it only takes 45 minutes at a leisurely pace to complete (stopping for pictures!)

Look out for the azure blue butterflies that only live at El Dorado Canyon State Park, where they feed on the natural hops that make Colorado famous for its craft beers 🙂
