Morrison is located just 30 minutes from downtown Denver. Despite its proximity to the Denver metro area, Morrison’s location on the west side of the Hogback rock formation provides separation from our metropolitan neighbors and makes it feel like a remote mountain town. That’s why we call Morrison “The Nearest Faraway Place”. Most people know Morrison for its location at the base of Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre or nearby Bandimere Speedway. What many people don’t know, however, is that Morrison is home to several world-class restaurants and shops located along historic Bear Creek Ave and Stone Street. Also, Morrison is a fantastic starting point for exploring the numerous trails that run through the Jefferson County Open Space Parks surrounding the town. However you choose to spend your free time, Morrison has a way to make it more enjoyable!
