Take a Hike!
Are you itching for spring or maybe just looking for something free to do? Explore our big backyard at one of 28 Jefferson County Open Space Parks. Jefferson County Open Space (which started 40 years ago as a grassroots volunteer initiative) includes more than 52,000 acres and 210 miles of trails. There's a park for everyone, whether you want to picnic along the creek at Lair o' the Bear or climb to the location of the ill-fated Summer White House at Mount Falcon. You can even pick up free trail maps at most Jefferson County Library locations.
