Outdoors: Hike in Staunton State Park


Why we love it: It's the new kid with a hundred-foot waterfall, granite cliffs, and lush meadows filled with wildflowers.

When to go: Whenever you need a daytrip (it's just 40 miles from downtown Denver).

In our June issue, we told you about Colorado's new baby: For the first time in 27 years, we opened a new state park, Staunton State Park. Since then, we have had some time to get familiar with the terrain, which is the legacy of Frances Staunton, whose parents—both of whom were doctors—homesteaded the original 160-acre nub around the turn of the last century.

Today, the old Staunton Ranch is at the heart of a 3,800-acre park with terrain rising from about 8,000 to 10,000 feet. You’ll find old-growth ponderosa pine habitat, vibrant stream corridors, and towering granite cliffs where several birds of prey nest and rock climbers cling. Based on our travels, here are two hikes to try.

I can't believe no one has responded to this post.

I am completely overwhelmed by the new addition of park land to the Conifer area. The Staunton's estaste is an amazing mix of trails, waterfalls, ponds, granite rock formations, hiking, biking and climbing that we have in the whole State Park's (sorry...Parks and Wildlife's) inventory and it's in our own backyard! I am always grateful to individuals, families and foundations that go out of their way to supply pristine lands for public use.

Love what you guys have done and what you are doing. Keep up the good work!
