Elk Meadow Park, Jefferson County Open Space
Elk Meadow Park is located on the north edge of Evergreen about 30 minutes from Downtown Denver. The park consists of the eastern flank of Bergen Peak and the large open meadows leading down towards Bergen Park. The main trail system skirts the edge of the mountain and crosses the meadow. The Bergen Peak Trail offers a 10 mile (RT) climb up to a wonderful summit with tremendous views in all directions. This park truly offers hikes of all skill levels and is a centerpiece of the Jefferson County Open Space System.
