When it comes to Colorado's pre-historic past, Morrison features several ways to explore the natural history at the Morrison Natural History Museum and Dinosaur Ridge. Kids of all ages will enjoy the Tiny Town Railroad, considered one of Denver's oldest landmarks, with a history dating back to 1920. The popular mountain destination features a train ride powered by an authentic steam locomotive, and "kid-size" town to explore.

Outdoor recreation, by far, is one of the most popular activities in Morrison. Parks and trails are abundant in the Jefferson County Open Space that surrounds the town. The Bear Creek Trail connects bikers and hikers from Bear Creek Lake Park to Morrison. Mount Falcon Park includes several short trails that yield stunning views from any direction. Historically, the park was chosen as the location of a summer home for the Presidents of the United States and building began in the mid-1900s. The effort was led by local visionary, John Brisben Walker, also a magazine publisher and automobile entrepreneur. Walker himself built a stunning mountain castle that eventually burned to the ground in 1918. The remains of the stone walls and several fireplaces are still found on the park grounds today.
