Mountain lion photo from trail camera

​​Home to an abundance of wildlife, Cheyenne Mountain State Park has black bears, deer, bobcats, wild turkeys, and even a mountain lion roaming the territory. Visitors frequently report seeing rattlesnakes cross the trails and raptors soaring high overhead.

In 2011, a small crew of dedicated volunteers installed a water guzzler within the Park. We have also installed a game camera that captures the large array of wildlife who have stopped off for a drink. Due to Colorado's dry conditions and our lack of running water, we recently installed a second guzzler within the Park to provide even better opportunities for the wildlife. 

When viewing wildlife, please keep a respectful distance from the animals. For more information, see the Wildlife Viewing​ page.

To protect the parks fragile eco-systems; pets, horses and smoking are not permitted on the trails or in the back country.
