From hiking along the magnificent sandstone cliffs to fishing in the South Boulder Creek, this day-only park is frequented by locals and tourists who come to take in the breathtaking scenery year-round. Eldorado Canyon State Park is home to some of the best rock climbing in the world and offers over 1000 technical rock climbing routes in and around its ‘golden cliffs.'
