Staunton State Park
A fun tour with beautiful scenery and perfect mix of cross-country and downhill.
Staunton State Park is a Colorado state park in Park and Jefferson counties, located 6 miles west of Conifer, Colorado. The 3,908-acre park, which opened on May 18, 2013, includes dramatic rock outcroppings, several streams and a waterfall.
The park was created out of a gift by Francis H. Staunton, who donated the original 1,720 acres to the State of Colorado. Ms. Staunton required the land "be preserved in perpetuity, for public benefit, as a natural wilderness-type park... typifying Colorado's most beautiful mountain forest and meadow region
Staunton’s trail system is mostly designated for multi-use, but there are several trails that are designated for hiker only. Mountain bike trails are not directional, but suggested directions, loops and rides can be found in detail on the Mountain Bike Project app.
There is a fee to enter the State Park - which tends to limit some of the crowding on the trails, and the gates are only open during designated hours.
