COLORADO'S NEWEST STATE PARK - COMING SOON!
Please Note: The Fishers Peak property is NOT YET OPEN to the public
Colorado Parks and Wildlife, along with our partners from the City of Trinidad, The Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land, and Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) continue to plan the future of the Fishers Peak property.
For more information on the planning process, park events and timelines, visit www.fisherspeakstatepark.com.
The Fishers Peak property was purchased in February 2019 through a collaboration between the City of Trinidad, The Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land, Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). In April 2020, CPW acquired the property and, working with our partners, will develop Colorado’s next state park.
The 19,200-acre property connects grasslands to the east with foothills and mountains to the west, serving as an important corridor for wildlife movement. Providing habitat for large native species like elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain lion and black bear, the property helps maintain important connections between these species’ populations in the mountains and those in the prairies.
The objective of the collaboration is to conserve, evaluate and plan the sustainable use of the property for the enjoyment of the public while perpetuating the natural resources on the property. All of the partners are excited about the opportunities available for exploration and education on the Fishers Peak property as the park takes shape.
