Bouldering & Climbing
Rotary Park has a long history of attracting climbers of all experience levels. Beginners will find plenty of classic bouldering challenges to build and develop their skills, while more skilled boulderers can follow along several technical routes and even a couple of top-ropes to try out.
Note: While the open space is accessible year-round, bouldering in winter can be dangerous. Be cautious and don’t climb alone.
Rotary Park can be accessed via the Foothills Trail that runs through Maxwell Natural Area, up through Rotary Park, and down to the Horsetooth Reservoir. Hikers might find the steep incline, leading to and from the park, to be a welcome challenge with quite a payoff: views of picturesque rock formations and pristine reservoir.
