Fisher’s Peak State Park
Trinidad is the proud home to Fisher’s Peak, Colorado’s 42nd State Park, which is an idea that began in early 2019 with the purchase of 19,200 acres of land from a private owner and has now morphed into the creation of Colorado’s newest and 2nd largest State Park. Now owned and managed by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, work has begun with many partners to prioritize the protection of the park’s natural, scenic, cultural and biological values while planning the development of enjoyable and meaningful outdoor recreation.
Biologists, archaeologists, and construction crews have all been working tirelessly, conducting scientific studies, defining cultural and historical assets, and laying the groundwork for the park’s recreational infrastructure. Management goals are being set and designs created for recreation amenities, such as roads, parking lots, restrooms, picnic areas, trails and wildlife-viewing areas.
Visitors can get a sneak peak at what’s to come on the new Fisher’s Peak website. There, you can learn more about the peak’s development and its partners, and get answers to some frequently asked questions. Contact us with any questions about planning your outdoor adventure and happy exploring!
