  • Very cool place to check out. You'll get an awesome history lesson and get to see some petrified redwood stumps along the way. Its a beautiful walk around the trail. Lots of great fossils and pieces of history in the visitor center.
  • This was one of the most memorable parts of my Colorado vacation. I really am amazed more people don't know about this park. The guided tours are very informative and make you appreciate the area more than you thought possible. The trails are well maintained even though they aren't crowded. This place allows you to enjoy nature the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
  • Grrrrrr8 educational experience in a healthy environment. Trails to hike
  • Great stop to learn about the natural history of Colorado. The facilities are new and the Rangers very helpful. Worth an hour of your time.
  • My wife and I visited and had a great time--Park Ranger Amanda was enthusiastic and informative--we enjoyed a nice quiet 2 mile hike with great views and not another soul in sight, followed by the indoor displays. We planned for 30 minutes and stayed for 2 hours!
