    VISITOR PARKING

    We ask our visitors to please park in our designated parking lots and not in the neighborhood just to the west of the main entrance at Ridge Road. This neighborhood has been inundated with safety and congestion issues from visitors to Red Rock Canyon parking there. The designated parking for oversize vehicles is at the 31st street entrance. Please find specific directions HERE

  • CELEBRATE EARTH DAY APRIL 18TH

    Celebrate EARTH DAY with RMFI, the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department, and Friends of Red Rock Canyon! Our project will focus on restoring a series of redundant and unsustainable rogue trails on the east side of Red Rock Canyon Open Space. Work will involve breaking up hardened soils, seeding, transplanting, mulching, and other necessary tasks.  This will be a half day event with lunch served after. Contact RMFI here to register.
