Rangers Join Blog

Please join us as we welcome our two Denver Mountain Parks Lead Rangers to this news blog. We hope this addition will help keep you more up-to-date on what’s going on out in our parks.

Rangers Dennis and Lonnie

Dennis Brown is Lead Park Ranger for the Red Rocks Ranger District and Lonnie Smith is the Lead Ranger for the Genesee Ranger District. They are joined by five seasonal rangers you will be seeing in our Denver Mountain Parks on a regular basis.

This increase in ranger staff is accompanied by new authority to issue park citations for park rule violations.

You may see our Denver Mountain Park rangers leading trail construction projects, enforcing park rules and regulations, patrolling parks and trails, providing first aid, cleaning bathrooms, or doing invasive plant management. Please feel free to introduce yourself to them and let them know what you think about your experiences in Denver Mountain Parks.

Denver rangers, both in our urban parks and mountain parks, are there to assist visitors, enhance visitor safety and protect the many resources found in our Denver Parks.
