Roxborough State Park offers a naturalist guided tour in a five-passenger electric golf cart around the Fountain Valley Trail. The tour features a gorgeous view of our Red Rock formations, grassy meadows, a wide variety of wildlife, and geological features.
Rox Rides are offered Mondays and Tuesdays, May through October. All children must be accompanied by an adult and small children must be in a car seat (not provided).
The tour is free except for a park pass that is required on all vehicles entering the park. If the entrance station is not staffed, a $10.00 daily park pass may be purchased at the self-service station, located at the park entrance. Annual park passes may be purchased at the Visitor Center during staffed hours. Donations are used to maintain the vehicle.
At least a two week advance notice is required to secure a driver for all Rox Rides. All Rox Ride reservations are tentative, and are subject to cancellation by park staff for any reason including inclement weather.
Rox Rides for special events are available for a fee. If you are interested in doing a special event at Roxborough please visit our Fees & Permits page
