    Centennial Cone Park


    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 in the Open Space system for separating hikers and bikers on weekends. Hikers enjoy the park on odd-numbered weekend dates, bikers on even-numbered dates. This policy, enforced by our rangers, has been widely supported by park visitors. Equestrians are welcome on any day.
