One of the best parts about Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre is that it’s free to visit! Admission to the park, amphitheatre, Visitor Center, Trading Post, and the Colorado Music Hall of Fame are all free of charge. If an event is on the calendar, access to the park and its amenities may be limited to paying event-goers.
Generally, the park and amphitheatre are open an hour before sunrise and close one hour after sunset. Indoor spaces like the visitor center and Colorado Music Hall of Fame have varying hours depending on the season. Keep in mind that admission hours may also vary depending on scheduled events.
Parking on non-event days is free at Red Rocks. Additional parking fees are typically included in the cost of tickets for special events. Oversized vehicles like minibuses and charter buses must drop off and pick up guests in the Lower South Lot 2. If you’re traveling in an ADA-accessible charter bus and need alternative pickup and dropoff options, notify staff as you enter the park.
This open-air amphitheatre is hailed for its near-perfect acoustics for concerts, breathtaking landscape, and picturesque hiking trails among red-stone cliffs. One of the best ways to fully experience Red Rocks is to grab tickets to an upcoming performance. If none of the scheduled events pique your interest, here are a few things your group can do at the park at any time:
There are 5 trails throughout the park ranging in length and difficulty. The Red Rocks Trail is a 6-mile loop that's highly recommended for outdoorsy groups interested in breaking a sweat and seeing the park’s geological highlights. If you’re looking for a quick and easy hike, consider the Trading Post Trail or Geologic Overlook Trail. Both trails are under 1.5 miles and offer gorgeous views of the natural landscape. Some portions of the Red Rocks Trail are multi-use for biking and horseback riding, so be sure to be considerate and mindful of other visitors.
1. Wear appropriate shoes and clothing: Although some trails may be relatively easy, it's highly recommended that you wear hiking footwear or another sturdy pair of comfortable shoes. You’ll also want to dress in layers, as Red Rocks can be chilly before sunrise but the heat index can easily feel scorching on summer afternoons.
2. Be mindful of altitude: If you’re visiting from a nearly sea-level city, the altitude change in Denver may cause altitude sickness. Red Rocks sits at about the same altitude as Denver at around 6,450 ft above sea level and high levels of activity may increase the likelihood of altitude sickness.
3. Bring water and snacks: Keeping hydrated and energized is important for any hiking trip, but especially important in warm, dry climates.
Self-guided tour information can be found at the Red Rocks Visitor Center. Taking a self-guided tour is a stress-free way to see the park at your own pace while learning a little along the way.
If you’re looking for more in-depth knowledge about Red Rocks, a guided tour is a better option. Just be mindful that guided tours are currently suspended but are typically available year-round for 15 to 50 people. Guided tours typically explore a variety of topics including the park's history, the geology of the 300 million-year-old rock formations, and the cultural significance to early indigenous Ute people. Pricing for guided tours varies between $4-6 for children under the age of 12 and $8-12 for adults.
Feeling a little winded and sweaty from hiking around the park or exploring the amphitheatre? Take a break and explore the Red Rocks Visitor Center and Trading Post. On top of being a great resource for park information, the Visitor Center also has the Southwest Heart of the Rock Theater, the Red Rocks Hall of Fame, and the Ship Rock Grille. Enjoy snippets of famous performances in the theater, learn about the park’s most famous performers, and grab much-needed refreshments.
After exploring the visitor center, check out the Colorado Music Hall of Fame exhibit inside the Red Rocks Trading Post. You’ll learn about the state’s historic rock music scene and local trailblazers in the industry. The post also has a unique souvenir shop and a scenic second-story deck.
