• Cathedral Spires Park


  • Activities




  • Steeped in history and mystique, Cathedral Spires has enticed climbers up its 1,200-foot approach for decades. With beautiful cracks and immaculate granite slabs, this area is truly a climbers' paradise.

    Cathedral Spires is home to nesting raptors each spring, when a seasonal closure takes effect. In addition to respecting this closure, please use established trails through Denver Water Board property to preserve what makes Cathedral Spires special. Access trails leading to the base of Cynical Pinnacle are steep.

    Getting There

    From Denver: Travel south on US 285 for 14.5 miles from C-470 to the Foxton Road exit. Travel south under the highway for 8.2 miles, then turn right on Platte River Road (County Road 96) and travel 2.4 miles to the parking lot on the north side of the road.
