Directions: From Denver, take I-25 south to Lincoln Ave. Head west on Lincoln Ave and turn left (south) onto RidgeGate Parkway. Make a right on Crooked Stick Trail and follow the road to the end and the trailhead.
Bluffs Regional Park is an open space park at the southern reaches of the Denver Metro Area in Douglas County. This park provides a very popular loop trail and two overlooks. This is more of a fitness hike then a wilderness experience and you will not be alone on the weekends. However, the views of the Front Range Mountains, including Pikes Peak, Mt. Evans, James Peak, the Indian Peaks, and Longs Peak are phenomenal on clear days.
The park offers a straight forward loop hike with two overlooks. The trail meanders up and down the hillsides but is easy to follow. There are also connector trails that lead to properties within the Douglas County trail system. The East/West Trail runs through the park and you can use it to connect to Wildcat Mountain to the south (private) or to reach the Lonehenge Viewpoint.
