  • This is the newest state park and has been designed very well. SOme of these trails can be challenging but the scenery is great and they whole place is very interesting. 
  • Staunton is a pretty new state park and is still working on its trail network. Don’t get me wrong, they already have a great network of trails for hiking, biking and horseback but they are making the ...  read more »

  • Okay, I get it, You don't understand yet how awesome this park is. BUT you should go and find out. This park is perfect if you really want to get out into nature without exploring the actual wilderness. There are two main trails, one with a higher elevation that eventually connects to the lower one at the northern most part of the park, and the lower one, which leads to a GORGEOUS waterfall. There are horse trails if you're an equestrian lover, and shorter loops in the trail if you're not ready for a 5-6 mile loop. We've been here multiple times and have loved every minute of it. There are no playgrounds for children, and usually there are a lot of bikers. This is an intense bike ride though, so I wouldn't recommend it to beginners. The only downside is that there is no camping allowed here. This park is almost 4,000 acres, and it's a bit of a drive to get to from the suburbs of denver, but it's our new favorite park in Colorado, and I highly recommend it.
  • Really gorgeous scenery. When I went, they had a small expo of wildlife and the staff was friendly and insightful. You'll see a good amount of bikers/hikers/horse riders along the trails. The trails aren't too challenging, but the views are pretty great.
  • Excellent, very new park with hikes for all difficulty levels. The front of the park has some very easy loops if you're looking for short, easy hikes. If you're looking for longer hikes, head to the back of the park where they also offer rock climbing.
  • We enjoyed a terrific 4 mile hike with my 6 and 2 year old. The 6-year old walked the entire time and the 2 year old was on my shoulders most of the trip. There was a nice creek running along the train and some really great views. Best part is how empty the trail was. This seems to still be a un-discovered spot.
  • This is a easy drive from Denver, one can make a day trip here. I really enjoy the scenery in this park. One of the trails follows a very nice little creek.
