Matthews Winters Park borders the ever popular Red Rocks Park (itself a part of the Denver Mountain Parks system). There are two main trails in this park, the Dakota Ridge Trail and the Red Rocks/Morrison Slide Loop, with various spurs and shorter trails. However, these trails can be pieced together for various combinations including a 9 mile marathon that covers the entirety of the park. Steep ridges, rolling hills, and red rock formations make this a very special part of the Jefferson County Open Space system.
