Explore fall’s confetti of colors at Colorado State Parks

From the mountains to the plains, the yellows, oranges and reds of fall are transforming the hills, mountains, forests and prairies at all Colorado State Parks.

At the state parks in western Colorado, the fall colors will peak in the next few weeks while the autumn burst of beauty is sweeping central Colorado from State Forest State Park near Walden to Navajo State Park near the New Mexico border. And along the Interstate 25 corridor from Lory State Park near Fort Collins to Trinidad State Park near Trinidad, the golden hues have started to appear.

Visitors can explore Colorado State Parks’ stunning scenery via trails on foot, horseback or by bike. For more information, visit the state parks’ website at http://www.parks.state.co.us/pages/fall.aspx.

In central Colorado, enjoy walking and viewing the golden trees and their reflections in lakes and rivers at Eleven Mile State Park near Lake George, the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area near Salida and San Luis State Park near Alamosa. Cabins, yurts, camper cabins and tent camping opportunities abound at various parks.
