Do you want to have a mountain backdrop for your engagement photos but don't want to travel far from Denver? Mount Falcon Park West Trailhead in Indian Hills, Colorado is a great option. Just steps from the parking lot are beautiful mountain vistas, meadow-like slopes, and large boulders for sitting and taking it all in. It's a great location because you can be dressed to the nines and you won't have to hike far in your pretty shoes. It's also a great spot for families with littles as the car can always be nearby. Up for adventure? Continue down the trails for more varied photo ops.
To give you a reference of what time of year you'll find foilage like what you see in these photos, this session was photographed at 6pm on June 23rd after a week of heavy rain.
The trailhead is part of the Jefferson County Open Space program and is free to the public. It's open daily an hour before sunrise to an hour after sunset. Mount Falcon West Trailhead address: 21074 Mt Falcon Rd, Indian Hills, CO 80454. For more info, visit the park website: https://www.jeffco.us/1332/Mount-Falcon-Park
