Roxborough State Park

Winter Activities at Roxborough State Park

Winter Activities - 6/30/2009
The scenery is quite dramatic when snow covers Roxborough?s ridges and spires. The myriad of animal tracks in the snow tell the stories of wildlife's winter activities. Novice and advanced cross-country skiers and snowshoers enjoy recreating on the gentle trails. The next time there is a measurable snowfall in the Denver area, head to Roxborough, but don?t wait too long after the snowfall. Because many of the trails are exposed, Roxborough veterans say the snow melts quickly?often, within one or two days of the snowfall. Going off the trails and snowmobiling are not permitted in the park.
