State Forest State Park near Walden, Colorado, is one of the most amazing creations of natural beauty in North America.
In the ultimate rugged Colorado, State Forest State Park offers visitors 71,000 acres of forest, jagged peaks, alpine lakes, wildlife and miles of trails. The park stretches along the west side of the Medicine Bow Mountains and into the north end of the Never Summer Range. In all this vast space, the park offers barely over 150 campsites, which means that you will see much more of nature, and much less of humanity, during your stay. We have hiked several of the trails there now, and visited many of the beautiful Alpine Lakes in the park. More than anything, we have seen wildlife barely to be found elsewhere in North America.
The wildlife common to the park includes bear, mountain lion, coyotes, and thousands of other species. But Moose is their claim to fame. North Park is considered the moose viewing capital of Colorado, with over 600 moose to be observed year-round.
The last two summers we have ventured there and have begun to collect some amazing moments. We have created a new gallery including some of our precious collection. Enjoy!
