Along the Beaver Brook Trail

This page provides links to maps available on this site and elsewhere on the web to help you find Mountain Park lands and trails. All links will open in a new window; most go to pdf files that you can zoom.

Maps on Denver Websites:

  • Dedisse Park Facilities Map (this website) The multi-use Dedisse Trail extends across the north and west parts of the park, connecting the Pioneer Trail (JCOS), with the trail system in Alderfer-3 Sisters Park (JCOS). There is also a trail around Evergreen Lake. Both trails are managed by Evergreen Park & Recreation.

  • Echo Lake Park Facilities Map (this website) Trails around the lake provide fishing access and family outings. They also connect to the Chicago Lakes Trail and to other Forest Service trails in the Mt. Evans Wilderness.

  • Genesee Park Facilities Map (this website) The 2-mile Chavez Trail stays within the park, as does the 0.6-mile Braille Nature Trail. Both trails also link to the Beaver Brook Trail (8.75 miles; 14.1 km), with connections to Lookout Mtn. Park (DMP) and Windy Saddle Park (JCOS).

  • Red Rocks Park Trails (Denver Theatres & Arenas) The 1.4-mile Trading Post Trail loops within the park, but the Red Rocks Trail links east to the Dakota Ridge Trail (2.2 miles) and extends north to connect with trails in Matthews-Winters Park (JCOS).

  • Corwina-O'Fallon-Pence Parks (this website) Shows the multi-use Bear Creek Trail developed cooperatively with Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS) through these parks and Denver's hiker-only trails. This map also shows trail connections to Lair o' the Bear (JCOS) and Little Park (DMP).

Trails Maps on Other Websites:

View from the Beaver Brook TrailMost of the Denver Mountain Parks are in Jefferson County. Thanks to cooperative efforts with Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS) over the last few years, more parks are accessible by trails, and the following trail connection maps are online at the JCOS website.

  • Bergen Peak Tract Although this is a "conservation/ wilderness" parcel, it is accessible via the 2.4-mile Too Long Trail to Bergen Peak, from the Meadow Trail in Elk Meadow Park (JCOS).

  • Dedisse Park Trail Connections Take a right from Sisters Trail or Hidden Fawn Trail in Alderfer-3 Sisters Park (JCOS) to find Dedisse Trail, managed by Evergreen Park & Recreation, which winds through the western edge and northern section of Dedisse Park and connects northward to the Pioneer Trail through Evergreen.

  • Flying J Tracts (JCOS Flying J Ranch Park) The 2-mile Shadow Pine Loop trail in this park uses small DMP parcels (80 acres) to create access for a longer hike in this new 361-acre OS park.

  • Red Rocks Park Trail Connections (JCOS Matthews Winters Park) 1.5 miles of trail in Red Rocks Park connect to the Morrison Slide Trail and the Red Rocks Trail in this 2344-acre OS park.

  • Mt. Falcon Trail Connections (JCOS) Three DMP parcels totaling 160 acres adjoin Mt Falcon Park. The 1.1 mile Devilís Elbow loop trail accesses the 80-acre DMP parcel.

  • Windy Saddle Park (JCOS) The east end of the Beaver Brook Trail connects to Open Space trails in Windy Saddle Park, including the multi-use Chimney Gulch Trail to Golden. Trails also link to the 0.5-mile Buffalo Bill Trail in Lookout Mountain Park (DMP) and 1.4 miles of loop trails at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Preserve (JCOS), both of which are hiker-only.
