Know Before You Go

This is NOT a Mountain Tour

Foothills sit at the base of the Rocky Mountains, they are the first hills you come to off the plains.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre Access

Access into Red Rocks Amphitheatre on days when a show or concert is scheduled is dependent on the concert schedule and sound checks. We cannot guarantee access. From May through October is Red Rocks busiest concert season, we suggest taking the morning tour for best chance to be able to walk into the amphitheater bowl before it closes for sound checks on concert days.
