    Centennial Cone Park offers a near-backcountry experience, with a 12-mile trail loop that challenges stamina, offers sweeping views of Clear Creek and provides the opportunity to see elk and other wildlife over wide expanses.

    Centennial Cone Park is unique for a policy enforced by rangers that separates hikers/equestrians and bikers on weekends.
